haha hip hop abs was so much fun, because he's always very up-beat and encouraging yet still continues to tell you to work past your limits kind of thing. That's why i love Jillian michaels with the 30 day shred and her other exercise programs, i do those every other day and zumba in between them now. feels great!

I guess, I mean I'm not sure based solely on the fact that it sounds like club music, but it does have a good diversity of styles, (e.i. salsa, celtic, ballet, baliwood, meringue) I do wish I could put more music on it, I think there is a way to connect to the library on the xbox and create a playlist... or it might just be using the pre existing songs.

Danicia, i totally agree right. I'd rather have my mind set on my workout and enjoying it, than being worried if everythings alright with the kids

Ami you definitely will enjoy it! I don't even feel tired during it or after it. I do two hours every morning and I find i have more energy during the day than doing any other morning workout :D you'll love it!

I just got the Zumba program and I am really excited to start it! Pray for me I really need to lose the weight and need the energy.

it took me a couple weeks doing it at home by myself to actually get the hang of it without someone telling me if i was doing it wrong. I'd love to go to a gym and actually take a class but with having 2 kids and not driving and my husbands at work all day that it's hard to find someone to take the kids.

I wish I could find the motivation to workout at home. I have to go to a gym and have an instructor breathing down my back or I just won't do it.

I never feel like I'm doing the moves properly at home either--I need someone there saying "Good Job! You've got this!"
....I'm such a baby sometimes.

I love when people are encouraging vs "hard" on you. I did insanity with shawn t, awesome program but not my style. hip hops abs with him was closer to my groove, but zumba is DEFINITELY my fav!

I love it too :) I go to class twice a week. I can't do it everyday though, so I do weight training and spin classes on my non-Zumba days, but Zumba is definitely my favorite.

I think a lot of it depends on the teacher too--I discovered that in my spin class. I used to HATE spin because the instructor was too hard on us--more "belittling" than "encouraging", which might be great for some, but NOT FOR ME! Then I switched to a different class taught by a woman and I love spin now as well.

i LOVE it, i tried it for the first time this morning, and i'm already addicted, seriously, why had I not tried this sooner. Not only can i do this from my own home which is more comfortable with me and easier considering it's SO expensive for childcare on my base here that it's not worth getting someone to watch them for 2 hours. But i absolutely love it. It makes you feel so amazing afterwards :)

I went to bed bath and beyond and got the zumba at home workout system. once I get closer to what I want to be figure wise then i'll consider going to classes. does the Kinect game have "newer" songs on it?

[deleted account]

Me too! However I use it on my xbox kinect since the gym on my base doesnt have childcare. But Its still awesome! I sweat my a$$ off.
