Zumba in Basel

I don't like the numbers I see on the scale since I came to Basel one month ago , due to all baguettes I consumed rushing to office . Of course plus lovely Swiss chocolates.. I guess I'm not alone on this ; or to be honest I hope I'm not alone

Thus I'm planning to move a bit more and want to do it in a fun way : Zumba ! As I could never be a jogging or fitness person ever.. ( yes once I really believed I could do it; so registered to a fitness club and visited it only 3 times in 1 month ; then hmm I was convinced it's not for me )

I found a lot of places to Zumba in Basel.. Look at this huge list !

http://www.zumba.com/parties/search/...nce:25/unit:m/

Plus there is one lady who is not listed on above link : http://latin-dance.ch/

Has anyone tried any of above in Basel ? Did you attend any classes or at least joined trial sessions ?

Re: Zumba in Basel

Actually there are many classes that are not listed there - it's up to instructors to do so and many can't be bothered, especially the ones who work for sports clubs (paid per hour and not by number of participats, so advertising is not as important). So if you have a sports club close by that you might consider joining, check their schedule as well, quite likely that they have zumba classes.

Re: Zumba in Basel

I go to Zumba at my gym - they have 2 classes a week and I pay 60 CHF a month for the whole gym - including steam/sauna. If you go to Zumba classes outside of a gym they are around 20 - even 25 CHF a class (a bit less if you book in blocks). The classes are probably better but a gym works out so much cheaper!! Maybe you can go to a class to start with - before signing to a contract with a gym - just to make sure you like it.

The first instructor at my gym was AMAZING!! He is now at his own center (at about 25 per class!!). But he was so good I would like to go to his maybe once in a while.

Re: Zumba in Basel

Saturday I'll be heading over to France for the market, cafe and grocery shopping - hmmmm..... might be an explanation for why I need Zumba!!

But have fun - I'm sure you'll love it!! I go to my gym but a free trial would have been great if the time was right.
