If you like to dance like no one’s watching, Zumba might just be for you! The Latin-inspired dance workout is one of the most popular group exercise classes in the world. It combines the beats of salsa, merengue, bachata, and flamenco with belly dancing and hip-hop elements. You don’t need to be a professional dancer to enjoy a Zumba class!
The upbeat music and choreography make you feel like you are out shaking your tail feather with your friends rather than participating in a high energy workout session. For those of you that prefer your workouts with lower intensity or are dealing with joint issues, Aqua Zumba is a fun option as well!
Zumba is one of the most versatile workouts to come about! Also, you really can be at any fitness level to participate. Fun fact: You can burn an average of 360 calories in one sixty-minute workout. That’s more than step aerobics or cardio kickboxing! Zumba focuses on strengthening your core and working out your legs as well as your glutes. In addition to a great cardio workout, you’ll also improve your flexibility.
The health benefits are amazing as well. If you are a diabetic, Zumba can help lower your blood sugar levels while increasing your energy. It can also help lower the risk of heart disease, reduce your blood pressure and lower your bad cholesterol. You can do all of that while having an awesome time!
