Zumba, a Latin-inspired aerobic dance class, is a great way to spice up your fitness routine. Shimmy into a nearby Zumba class, rent a Zumba Fitness DVD or even download an app like Zumba Dance to start reaping the comprehensive benefits of Zumba!
- Zumba dance routines can easily be adjusted to your own fitness level: add a little bounce to your step or make your movements more dramatic for an extra burn or make steps smaller and simplify your movements to lower intensity. Kids and seniors can also try ZumbAtomic and Zumba Gold, respectively, for an age-specific program!
- Zumba ‘s classes switch between low- and high-intensity dance patterns which burns more calories than steady-state exercise. Plus, the upbeat, energizing music helps you exert more energy without even realizing it!
- Best of all, Zumba is fun! The music and non-judgmental social atmosphere boosts confidence and energy and keeps participants coming back, leading to long-term fitness success.
