I have been wanting to try Zumba Class but don't want to spend the money if my body can't handle it. After two knee surgeries, my knees just don't work the way they did 10 years ago. Plus, I am so out of shape, I probably wouldn't last 15 minutes in a class. So I did some searching and found a few Zumba videos I can do at home and if I need to stop for a moment, I can just hit the pause button. Being out of shape and a newbie to Zumba, these videos are really good starters. My 17 year old daughter does it with me and we hope to get my husband involved as well. It's a lot of fun! We are doing Lesson 1, Part 1 in the morning before we start our day and Part 2 & 3 in the evening.
I have to admit, I was about 5 minutes into it and my legs and feet started to ache and burn, but I kept on going. It definitely got my heart pumping. I am sure it burned a few calories, which is something I really need!
