I bought Zumba after my 6th child. I thought I was fairly fit because I’d kept cross-training through my pregnancy but Zumba sessions suggested otherwise. So glad I bought it because it’s a lot of fun, I don’t have to go anywhere, my kids think I’m funny to watch LOL. I’m much more aerobically fit now, which is great for someone with asthma for me. I need all the help I can get building strong lungs. If I don’t have much time, I can do the quick 20 min workout. If I have more, the sculpt & tone 50 min workout is brilliant. I mostly do it for 30 mins cos that’s plenty of perspiration (esp. as I’m pregnant again with no. 7). Which brings me to another point – hubby loves the fit look. I’m not as skinny as the Zumba trainers but I’m toned, smaller & feel healthy. NB. 20-30 mins on my cross trainer is my alternative workout so Zumba is not a be-all-end-all solution to fitness but it is a hugely satisfying workout in itself.
