Prior to learning meeting the “right” instructor I have always considered Zumba to be a rest day sort of class. The kind that would loosen me up after an extremely heavy lifting session or a hard spin ride. No more! Zumba is just as intense as the rest of high intensity classes at the gym!
If you have taken Zumba before and it hasn’t been “all that” then you have not found the right instructor. Keep trying!
A really great alternative is the Zumba 2 for the Wii, I have it and I generally burn around 700 calories per session. It is just fantastic (and so much fun!).
Have you guys tried Zumba? Is it “all that” for YOU?
