I've never done it, but I've seen how it works first-hand. Our BO's wife has been 260 pounds + and less than 5'2 the entire time I've known her, but last fall she started doing Zumba in hopes of losing weight. Its AMAZING how well its worked for her! I don't know what she currently weighs, but I know that she's gone from a size 22 to a size 16 in just four and a half moths. She looks great!

Zumba is a lot of fun and the instructors are generally easy going and it's quite easy to pick up the moves. You will love it!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Zumba! Of course I used to be a ballroom dance instructor and the latin moves are so much fun to me! I lost quickly, and then kind of stayed the same. That was doing five classes a week. I am going to order the DVD this time so I can do even more when I quit losing. Good Luck !

I was doing some research yesterday and the reviews of both the original and Zumba 2 are very mixed.

I have a bad knee but was hoping that Zumba Gold may be doable

First question, is it pronounced like Zoom, or to rhyme with sum??

Second any feed back on Zumba for the wii yet? There are no classes anywhere around here so I'll have to be home schooled
It's pronounced zoom-bah, according the people in the dvd and wii versions. It's always how I've said it. :)

I do zumba at my local gym it is soooo much fun, you really forget your working out. It took me forever to get the courage to take the class, the dances looked so complicated I was scared I would mess up and look so stupid. But all the people are so friendly(even when I mess up and bump into them). I'd say go for it and have fun :).
