Does anybody ever do Zumba? I'm 50 with a lot of ailments and arthritis in my body but willing to give it a try at home that is. I used to love to dance, Do they have beginner tapes.

I have tried it and I liked it. They had a class at the gym where I worked out but they don't have it on my lunch break anymore. It works your whole body.

I love Zumba. I go every week. The instructor that teaches my class makes sure to tell everyone to modify moves if you need to. That way you avoid injury or stress on sensitive joints. Just keep moving. I have not tried any at-home videos though.

I haven't tried Zumba yet but it looks like something I will try. I keep seeing classes everywhere. A few years back I took kick-boxing and did modify the moves for my knee issues. My knees are worse in my ability to bend them like "normal" knees but that's OK I can still do "my version" and get some exercise.

Great work on maintaining your weight!
