@Creeech Don't be embarrassed to go to Zumba! It's the best class ever - and there are women (and sometimes men!) of all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels in there.
My very first Zumba class, I laughed my way through most of it. Every time the instructor and class went left, I went right; every time they did a turn and were facing the back, I was facing the front. But I LOVED it - loved the energy, loved the workout, loved the music and loved how much fun I had.
If you keep going to the same instructor, you will begin to learn her choreography for her "signature" songs, and after a class or two, you will be dancing right along with everyone else, anticipating the next moves. The best part is that Zumba instructors are taught to choreograph songs into "sets," so you can anticipate that the chorus of a song will always be the same steps, the verse will always be the same steps, etc.
I lost my first twenty pounds easily doing Zumba, and love it so much, I got the instructor training and still attend classes a year later. In my opinion, it's the best fitness class out there - when the hour is up, the whole class is usually asking the instructor for "just one more song!" Take a friend and give it a shot, I am so glad I tried it.
