    • No I have not.  I heard it was a GREAT work out though.  You really feel the BURN.  Let me know how you like it.

    • Yes, It’s a blast..It’s a dance work-out program based on Latin salsa and merengue music. The class goes by so fast, take a small towel with you because you will sweat a lot! You will have your hips a moving, lol.. Enjoy your class!

    • Sandyh pretty much summed it up well.  Lots of hip movement.  Salsa, belly dancing movements.  Good workout for abs and legs.  Face paced.  

      I wasn’t very good at it ‘cause I didn’t know the steps, but I will go again.  The learning keeps my mind occupied so I can avoid boredom and forget how hard I am working.  I wouldn’t recommend it for someone first starting out on their fitness journey, but it wouldn’t take but a few weeks to be ready to try it.  Take it at your own pace.  If you have to simply move the feet rather than jumping, that’s fine.  Just keep moving in place.  And afterward, the psychological benefit is just as valuable as the physical.  Today on a rainy Saturday morning when I could have stayed in bed, I got up and went to exercise.  I am proud of myself!  You deserve that great mindset, too!

    • I haven’t been to the class, but a friend loaned me the DVDs for a while once.  A ton of fun, but very challenging.
