Ever heard of someone losing weight via dancing. Well, Cynthia Ortega has done it.
She lost a whopping 230 pounds with Zumba. So, let me present to you one of the best “Zumba Weight Loss Success Stories”
Cynthia is born and raised in Houston. After a series of health issues and consistent weight gain, Cynthia decided to change her life once and for all. One of the major incidents that motivated her to change her lifestyle was when she fell into a medically induced coma after contarcting Swine Flu.
Her Zumba Journey
Form all the weight loss stories with zumba, this one is really special.
Because she is an inspiration to us all. She lost weight and she is inpiring us all to be fit with her Youtube Channel “Best Friend Fitness BFF”.
She stumbled upon a Zumba class and she grabbed her friend and started doing Zumba twice a week. In an interview with Popsugar she said, “It just looked like a lot of fun and something I could do,” She says that she lost 30 pounds in the first month of her Zumba journey.
This is really fascinating because at her breaking point she weighed a well over 400 pounds. Since 2013, Ortega says that she has lost 230 pounds.
It was very difficult for Cynthia to lose weight because she had never worked out before. Being overweight shatters your confidence and it can really hold you back from doing anything. But, Cynthia fought back. She fell in love with Zumba.
What made it fun was that she found something that she loved doing. “My friends think I make it look easy, but I get out of breath, sore, and tired. It’s something that I truly love,” she said.
She has some great friends too because they inspired her to share her journey with everyone.
And she did.
As I mentioned before she started a Youtube channel called “Best Friends Fitness BFF”.
She didn’t stop here. Cynthia lost weight and she is writing more zumba weight loss success stories.
She started her own Zumba Classes. She is still on her Zumba Fitness journey and she says, ” “I am an instructor. Yes, I’m an owner of Z Fitness but I’m not perfect. I fail. I’m not a failure. I failed and I know how to get back up,” That’s why out of all the zumba weight loss success stories this one is my favorite.
In this video she tells us that she has started it all over again because she gained the weight she lost initially. She is truly inpirational and the comments under the video are motivating as well.
Having a great conversation with a new student this morning and I just thank God that he gave me this chance to have my studio, be a Zumba instructor BUT mainly meet all these amazing ladies! I realize that this is way more then just FITNESS! God placed me here for a purpose! Sometimes we don’t even talk fitness but we talk “Real”! We cry, we let out, we mentor and we hug! We remind eachother that we are not alone! I love the place God has put me in & I only pray that God always puts the right words to give true comfort to the ones who need it!!! I pray that his light is seen in me and everyone knows that my smile, my love and my happiness is ALL and ONLY the God inside of me!!!! It’s been a blessed morning indeed!

Experience Zumba at Home: My Suggestion
Let’s see how you can do Zumba at home with the experience I am having.
I prefer sometimes to go for Home workouts. so I use Zumba DVD. The best thing about working out at home is you will have time to manage your own way as you are not going outside for any session and you will save a lot of time.
You will have your own schedule of a session and your own way of doing it, Just follow what I follow. Score!
Zumba Incredible Results Kit.
I use the Zumba Incredible Results kit. I got it on Amazon and it was an amazing deal. It includes a Zumba Rizer. Remember the ol’ step aerobics? You use the Rizer for some workouts to tone your legs and butt. It also comes with several workouts. I recommend checking out the reviews on Amazon if it’s something you’re interested in.
But you can find loads of other fun Zumba DVD workouts for home that can be a teacher at home. We have listed below some set of DVD’s set I have and I follow at home.
