  1. LOVE Zumba. It’s probably my favorite class at the gym….it’s fun, and the the time just flies! You’re right though, the teacher can totally make – or break – the class. And there are definitely routines I’m all EH about.

    • I resisted Zumba for a long time but finally tried it out when we were in SLC. It was actually really fun! You are right; the teacher totally makes it. I could see it only being egh if the teacher was just so-so.

  2. I haven’t tried Zumba, but it seems like it would be fun. And I hear ya on the motivation thing. I’m really struggling right now. I’m going to blame it on winter. 🙂 Hope that motivation pops up soon! For both of us.

    I took Zumba several times. I did like it however recently got hooked on the new release of Body Jam, which throws very much back on latin dance.

  4. I am super hesitant to try Zumba. Selfish? Yes. I know I love to run and love Pure Barre and so I am going to waste an evening gyrating my hips with a bunch of well..people who don’t want to sweat. I should probably just put on my big girl panties and go.

    • I totally understand not wanting to possibly “waste” your gym time but make no mistake, Zumba can be sweaty and heart pumping! Like I said though, totally depends on the teacher and more often than not the teacher breaks it for me instead of makes it. 🙁
      But I am insanely critical of teachers!

    I have a love-hate relationship with Zumba, too! My sister is a Zumba instructor, so of course I love that, but I am sooo uncoordinated that I get confused when I am ‘trying’ to ‘join the party’ haha. =D

    • Totally! That is one time when the instructor can make it or break it for me. If the teacher is impossible to imitate because they are a ridiculously amazing dancer than it makes me distracted and self-conscious. I like a teacher who is an awesome dancer but knows when to tone it down so the students can actually follow.
      How long has your sister been teaching?
