Some co-workers mentioned Zumba for exercise, although they have never tried it themselves. Is Zumba an effective way to lose weight, and should I get a Zumba DVD or actually go to a class?
Zumba is a fun way to exercise and is an "an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party" (zumba.com).
You should not have any trouble finding a Zumba class in your area. Classes can be held at local the local YMCA, fitness centers, senior centers, churches, schools, and even shopping malls. You can also find classes by going to www.zumba.com. If you have time constraints or would rather stay at home, then Zumba DVDs are available.
