FAQ About Zumba

Zumba is the recent dance exercise class that’s sweeping the city.

With diverse dance routines from meringue & salsa to bollywood & belly dancing they are spun together into a class with a cool party atmosphere.

Zumba was invented by Beto Perez from Columbia who one day did not remember the music for his aerobics class. All he had was a selection of music CDs from his car. With that mixed bag of music the class he instructed proved to be very well liked & the rest is history.

It was discovered that a lot of members were feeling uncomfortable by the old method of leading a work out class. So in comparison all Zumba work outs are led with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the instructor to do the steps properly.

The people in the class just perform the steps the instructor is executing but if they can not or don’t desire to do that routine, all they need to do is to do their own thing, keep moving & to have fun fun fun!

Zumba is suitable for practitioners over the age of 16 and is suitable for all ranges of fitness and experience. But for dancers younger than that there is Zumbatomic. There is no dress code (Spandex is NOT mandatory!).

Just bring what you feel comfortable in but also remember you’ll be very hot! The best shoes to use are ones that will give your foot support (similiar to an aerobic style shoe). It’s best not to bring a shoe that has too much traction because can create pressure on your knees.

People are instructed to bring a towel and a water bottle along with them because they will get very hot! There is a stop between every track allowing everybody to have a little taste of water before the workout continues.

With Zumba places popping up everywhere,communities are slowly starting to rattle as if hit by an earth quake, as dancers shimmy, shake & gyrate to the fantastic Latin songs that is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is contagious with some people having to go to four or five work-outs per week because they relish the class SO much.

In an average hour long workout, you will lose close to five hundred – 600 calories but can reach up to eight hundred when you pull all of the stops out.
