I just tried zumba before getting pregnant. Loved it! I am not a gym person and found I do better in classes....although I live hiking as well. During the summer my husband and I ride our bikes through a huge housing development and around a lake here in town. I thought about taking some karate lessons as well. Did that as a kid and enjoyed it.
I am still doing zumba twice a week and yoga as much as I can. It is helping me feel better this pregnancy than I have in my others. I love zumba! I just don't do all the jumping now. I did p90x after my last pregnancy and it worked wonders so I think I will do that again.
Can u get permission from your dr and then try again? I am taking a regular zumba class and there is another pregnant girl there too. We love it and with your Dr's permission it is perfectly safe. I was doing it before pregnant.. don't know if that makes a difference there. My dr said I can go the whole way til I have the baby as long as I slow down and I have to check my pulse and drink a lot of water.
