**Update: I went, I was scared but I did it!! It was fun!! According to my HRM I burned 459calories in the 1hr class!! Love it!! Thanks Ladies for the encouragement!! 

 

 

So I joined a gym about 2 weeks ago. I only go at night with my DH, but I have been wanting to try Zumba for a good while now(since before joining the gym), but I am kinda scared to do it!! I am not coordinated of any sorts, and usually only dance when drunk and it ain't good then either!! So they have a class today at 9am, and I am trying to convience myself to go, but again I am scared!! lol

 I was on the same boat, so uncoordinated but I watched a few classes and turns out most people don't know what they are doing, the only one that really looks good doing it is the instructor so I figured I'd fit right in, I only managed one class because I over did it the first day - too much for the blood pressure meds I'm on so I am doing lighter workouts now to work my way up to zumba.

On that note- yeah, I'm rhythmically challenged at best, so there is NO WAY you could talk me into Zumba. LOL

Do it! I rented the Zumba game for the wii and did a little practice with it. And like a pp said, most everyone else in there will probably be just as uncoordinated. I know I was a mess! But it was so fun and a hell of a work out! Just have fun with it!

Go! It is a great workout. I went for the first time last Tuesday. It seemed so easy while I was doing it, but I definitely felt it afterwards. No one felt like they looked good doing the moves. You can do this! I really hope you decide to go. I go to my Zumba class at 9:30 this morning.

I was seriously terrified of going the first time.  I looked at it this way...if I don't do it I will never know if I like it or not and if I do try it- I can at least say I did it once. 

2 months later I'm going 3x a week and still feel uncoordinated at times- but it gets more and more fun
