{Giveaway} Zumba Gold Live It Up DVD Set

FOF Joy Prouty is giving away her Live it Up Zumba DVD Gold Set to five lucky winners. It includes a three-set DVD (intro, cardio, and toning), one pound maraca toning sticks, and a healthy living guide developed by nutrition expert Joy Bauer.  Enter to win by answering this question in the comments below: What motivates you to work out?

FOF Joy Prouty is now considered a Zumba expert, but, it was only after the age of fifty that the dance and fitness aficionada discovered the Zumba fitness program, a fast-paced cardio workout rooted in Latin American dance moves. Or, we should say, Zumba discovered her…

In her teens, Joy taught dance, and later, moved from Pittsburgh to New York City to dance with the iconic Radio City Rockettes from 1959-1961. In 1965, after retiring from the Rockettes, she became a fitness instructor at The Imperial School of Dance in Palm Beach, Florida.

In 1980 she opened The Fitness Connection, the first of her three fitness studios, all in Palm Beach County, and started a separate personal training business that same year. Ten years later, Joy was invited to join the original Step Reebok Team as their primary international trainer. She traveled to over 40 countries, sharing her fitness expertise with Reebok trainers, instructors, and consumers.

In 2006, Joy’s fitness career and dance background caught the attention of Zumba’s three founders — Alberto “Beto” Perez, Alberto Perlman, and Alberto Aghion. They asked Joy to try their Zumba program and she immediately fell in love with the workout. “Zumba is all about the feeling of the music and the freedom to move,” says Joy. “It’s just a party all the time!” The three Albertos asked Joy to adapt their Zumba program into a workout geared toward the over-fifty crowd. “The Zumba Gold workout uses the same wonderful rhythms and exciting music that inspires you to dance but the transitions are a little bit slower and smoother, and the intensity is lower,” says Joy. “It’s a really good entry program.”

Zumba Gold officially launched in January 2007, and is now taught throughout the U.S. You can find a Zumba Gold class near you by visiting Zumba.com.  Zumba Gold can also be practiced at home with the Zumba Gold Live It Up DVD set. “The first DVD breaks down our basic rhythms,” says Joy. “The second DVD is a 45-minute cardio workout tapping into our basic, reggae, and salsa rhythms. The third DVD is our ‘gold toning,’ which uses the toning sticks to strengthen your body.”  The program also includes a food and nutritional guide. “It’s a really wonderful package and a great way to get started,” Joy says.

Enter to win a Zumba Gold Live It Up DVD Kit by answering this question in the comments below: What motivates you to work out?
Five FOFs will win. (See all our past winners, here.) (See official rules, here.) Contest closes February 14th, 2013 at midnight E.S.T. Contest limited to residents of the continental U.S.

    I have struggled with my weight all my life. I am determined to make the following years the best my life. I want to be in better shape now then when I was young. and I have loved Zumba since saw the VCR tapes for sale on late night TV and purchased them many years ago before anyone had heard of Zumba. I love the dance element mixed with exercise.

    When an exercise routine is easy to follow and enjoyable, it is certainly easier to stick to. Too many workouts are difficult to keep up with both with being out of shape and other physical limitations. This seems like fun and the “gold” program would be geared for us baby boomers. And positive results from being active would be motivating.

  7. Marge Johnson says:

    I just turned 70 and I lost 85# a couple years ago. The only way to keep it off is a healthy diet & exercise. I can do so much more now, and exercise helps depression, sence of well being, energy level, and general health, especially cardiac and joints. All seniors should get regular exercise. It prevents a lot of medical problems and helps them to live longer and still maintain their mental and physical health.
    We lost our Zumba Gold instructor, and since I live in a small town, chances of finding another are slim, and I do so want to keep up this fun way to exercise and stay healthy.

    I am 65 and my husband is 70. We have 5 children morbidly obese. I am 40 lbs overweight. I am motivated to exercise because for our new years resolution my children and I decided to change our future. As a family we have lost in excess of 100 lbs since January. We are walking and exercising our way to better health. I’m not going to sit back and watch all the fun my children are having. I just signed up for my first 5K and I’m determined in August to go on a 25 mile midnight bike ride with my family. One of my daughters convinced me that the best thing I can do is Zumba my way to fitness. I want to live my life as fit as possible and show my family they’re not leaving me behind.

My BF sees me dancing in the Zumba class and says all I do is smile the whole time. When it’s fun, it’s not excercise. It’s dancing. I don’t like to exercise much, but I love to dance!

    Recently I saw Zumba on line and felt my body responding to the music moving and shaking with very little effort from me.
    Now I am willing to give Zumba a try along with my diabetes diet, etc to exercise off the weight while really being able to move from both in and out of my wheelchair.

    I am purely motivated to excercise because it makes me feel better about myself. I get up and walk in the mornings before work and it starts my day off in such a positive way.

I do excercise for my husband as I want him to be proud of his wife but that is a secondary reason as excercising just makes me feel better.

    Now that I am a Grandmother I realize it’s now or never for getting more fit. That sweet little 5 year old can keep this Grandma running all day when she visits. I love to dance, but not in public as I am a little self conscience. I work about 50 hours each week in retail and really can’t find the right time to go to a “Zumba location”. This would be perfect for me to get goin in my own home. I really hope I am one of the 5 winners!!!

    I used to be very fit without much effort but as I’ve “matured”, my children have left the nest and my job became more administrative (aka sedentary!), my fitness has become floppiness! Getting into a fitness routine is very uncomfortable initially when you are truly out of shape and most exercise plans don’t offer a distraction from the discomfort so they aren’t very motivating. I have always loved music and dancing and must have at least 1 Latin bone in my body because the first time I saw a Zumba video session I actually WANTED to jump in and sweat! I would love to be able to hop and bop in my own home whenever I like and I might even be able to convince my husband to join in too. Retirement doesn’t look too promising financially so we both need to stay healthy and able to work as long as possible while also having enough energy to enjoy life outside of work. The Zumba Gold set would be a fun way to do what we HAVE to do!

    I took a Zumba class last year for several months and began to see a difference in my body. There was definitely more shape and tone. When I started the class I could barely keep up, huffing and puffing. By the end of the classes, I worked up a sweat but I was nowhere near as breathless. Then the holidays came around along with a vacation and everything literally went to pot. I can’t wait for the new session to start up and I am looking for a video to work with at home as well. I will definitely put this set to good use!

She always inspired me to dance with abandon and laugh a lot, doing the charleston and mashed potato in our living room, laughing til the tears came. That’s what Zumba is to me, non-judgemental, undeniable FUN! It’s the only form of exercise that makes me excited to get to the gym. Shake Shake Shake your booty and JUMP around! I LOVE Zumba!

    My Dad was a big man, as was my paternal grandmother. I was always 5’11” tall. I gained 100 lbs with my pregnancy ( both my sisters gained 80-90 as well and they’re skinny mini’s.) It took me 3 years to lose the 100. And put back on another 25. Been trying to get rid of it. Four years ago, I shrunk 4.5″ in height and had no pain, bone density was good, rode horses growing up. So now those 25 lbs are killer on a 5’5″ body.
    I have to lose this before I hit 65 or my knees and ankles will be trouble. Tried zumba loved it but couldn’t keep up the intense pace and jumping around. This would be perfect and I have four other gals who will do this with me also. Please consider my motivation for this. Thank you and take care, Donna F. South Carolina

    This is my year to get fit and quit smoking for good.
    It may be sad and silly, but I just can’t dance around my house without a rational reason and the Zumba Gold kit would give me that reason!
    The Wii that one of my sons gave me when they were no longer using it helps but not enough. With the Zumba kit I could also invite my next door neighbor to exercise with me a couple days a week – she is good for nagging me into walking as she has RA.
    I am tired of having to use awkward positions to do things even in the bathroom LOL
    I want to get in those boxes and get back into the really nice clothes that used to fit!
    Then I can stop hoarding those clothes and get rid of the ones that I don’t like or are maybe too young [I’m keeping the one mini-skirt though!!].
    I just don’t want to buy any more of these 3x’s and the Live It Up Zumba set would decrease or eliminate any problems with loose skin, so I really hope I will be one of the five winners!!

    In my 20s, 30s, and even 40s, looking good and toned was always my motivation for working out. But now, at 54, my sole motivation is my fear of that annual bone density test. Osteopenia is already my constant companion, and Osteoporosis is one tick away.

    What does my doctor tell me to do? Aerobic activity EVERY day, and some form of light weight-bearing exercise. This combination will improve my overall bone health and may possibly improve/reverse my numbers. So what does one do when they go to the gym and see the aggressive, 1-2 punch of hardcore cardio activity? I retreat. Zumba has been mentioned to me countless times. I would love to try this, because I know the results will speak loud and clear in my numbers, if I’d just try.

  388. Rhonda Dunford says:

    My motivation for working out is the fact that I have been through 2 marriages (17 yrs and 5 years), both of which ended from infidelity on the husbands’ part, even though I was young and think then. It left me feeling less of a woman and I have been single for 11 years regrouping and getting my self respect and confidence up through good nutrition and exercise, such as ballroom dancing, hiking, biking and power walking. I tried Zumba once in a group setting but couldn’t get into the fast past swing of things with the rest of the ladies. I fell in love with Zumba itself, but feel I need to have the program in my home where I can master the moves and techniques at my own pace. If and when I can master Zumba, I would love to go through the proper steps to become a Zumba instructor and assist other ladies master the techniques as well. I’m very personable and feel I could help other women, especially those who are trying to “regroup” from their own personal setbacks; putting great emphasis on the importance of exercise which can be fun and so rewarding, as it seems to be with Zumba. I have seen this program on tv and wanted to order it but simply don’t have the funds to purchase it myself, seeing that my resources are very limited. Winning the Zumba kit would be an ultimate Valentine’s Day gift for me and pick me up from the long winter months that tend to give me the blues, and would literally put a spring in my step as I get ready for the warmer months ahead.

    I am my Mom’s caregiver . She has dementia and requires me to be here all of the time. When I work out, it gives me the opportunity to think about me. It recharges me and helps me to be my best.

    I have always wanted to try Zumba. I have seen the results from people I know. It is a miracle weight lose program. Winning it would be my salvation in losing 75 pounds that it much needed by doctors orders.

    What motivates me to work out? The fact that I am 50+ and my Mom had a better bod than me at the age of 75 due to working out each and every day. There is nothing better than getting your grove on with great music, a great instructor and the willingness to shake your grove thang. I would love to be one of the lucky ones to receive this package, PICK ME! In advance Joy, thanks for sharing…

    I really like a workout with good music! Just going from machine to machine just doesn’t do it for me. I also like to work out with my husband. We met in a dance class and so are always looking for workouts with good music and a workout that’s more like a dance routine. That puts the fun in an exercise routine and makes you look forward to it and not view it as work.

    What motivates me to work out is a look in a full-length mirror! Not pretty! I have so little time to go to the gym and have wanted to try a Zumba class, so many friends are hooked on Zumba. It would be so much easier for me to be able to do it at home.

    Pain! That’s probably my biggest motivation–if I don’t at least stretch for 20 minutes or so 3x/week I do not feel good. The more I work out the better I feel, generally.

    I get motivated when I can see the results….slipping into your jeans just a bit better, etc. It’s a bonus when you can have fun. I’d love to try Zumba at home through this system. I tried an introductory class just weeks after abdominal surgery and it was too much at that time. I’m past that consideration and ready to go!

    What motivates me to work out? Hmmmmm. Let me see. To feel better? yes. To get a jump start on the day feeling like I can do anything? hell yes. To lose weight and remain independent? Double hell yes. To take time for me and just me. Triple dipple hell yeah!!!

    I am 54. I want the second half of my life to be even better than the first half. Excercising increases my chances of that happening. Not excercising doesnt do a damn thing.

    My health motivates me work out. I am in excellent health would like to stay that was for many years to come. I have a 16 year old daughter who I has when I was 34 and I want to be around for a very long. Having fun while working is must for me. I am not a lifting weights at the gym kind of person. My aunt who lives 1400 miles away is a Zumba instructor and often tells me that I would love it, that I would become addicted (that is the kind of exercise I’ve looking for) and would probably want to eventually become an instructor myself. I live in a small, remote area where Zumba is not offered close enough to where I live. I would love the opportunity to win this Zumba prize pack as it is something I would definately use daily. I would love to learn the dance moves in the privacy of my home as they are like no other dancing I’ve ever done. It does look fun and my goal is to gain the look iof a dancer’s body, rather than muscular and unnatural. Please consider me for this prize pack. Thank you and food luck to all of the other entrants who are hoping this prize will go to them as well. xox

      I meant to say good luck (not food luck) and best wished to all other contestants who are hoping to win. This prize pack will be a blessing to whoever wins.

      Thanks you for overlooking all of my typos contained in my precious post.
