Zumba is a lot of fun! If you like music and dancing, you'll love it. The only people I've found who didn't like it were the more sporty types who liked softball, volleyball, etc. They didn't like the dance moves.
Zumba was one of the first things I did when I started exercising. I dropped in at the end of a class and did the last 15 minutes or so huffing and puffing (but having so much fun!) -- I was around 260 lbs. The next week I went back for the entire class and did all the moves that I could at the back of the room. Gradually, it got easier, and I did an hour of zumba once a week for a long time. They just recently discontinued the class... said it was passe' ...whatever. I loved it!
