Zumba was my first experience with group fitness ever! I've always been into team sports (e.g. soccer, field hockey, basketball, and volleyball), so I was a little apprehensive about taking a Zumba class because I didn't really have the dance background. I did some Filipino traditional dancing in undergrad, but nothing with a Latin dance background.
So how did I get into Zumba? I had a class assignment and decided to do it on Zumba. For research purposes, I took a class and was immediately hooked. A month later I got licensed to teach!
In class, don't get intimidated by the steps. Just do the moves that are within your comfort zone. I'll make sure that every class: 1) is safe and 2) will give you a great workout! I am also licensed to teach other Zumba formats: ZumbAtomic, Zumba Gold, and Zumba Toning.
