What To Expect In a Zumba Class

Zumba is the unique dance work out program that is spreading over the globe.

With distinctive dance choreography from meringue & salsa to bollywood & belly dancing they are mixed together into a program with a great party atmosphere.

Zumba was originated by Beto Perez from South America who one day forgot the music for his aerobics class. All he had was a variety of music CDs from his car. With that mixed bag of music the class he instructed proved to be very exciting & the rest is history.

It was discovered that many people were feeling uncomfortable by the normal stategy of instucting a fitness lesson. So in comparison all Zumba lessons are taught with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the coach to make the steps correctly.

The women in the class just copy the moves the Zumba instuctor is performing but if they can not or do not desire to do that technique, all they have to do is to do their own thing, keep moving & to have fun fun fun!

Zumba is good for students over the age of 16 and is excellent for all levels of fitness and experience. And for students younger than that there is Zumbatomic. There’s no dress code (Spandex is NOT mandatory!).

Just bring what you feel comfortable in but do bear in mind you’ll get extremely hot! The best shoes to bring are ones that will offer your foot support (similiar to an aerobic style shoe). It’s better not to bring a shoe that has too much grip as this can add pain on your knees.

People are asked to bring a towel & a bottle of water with them because they will get very hot! There is a stop between each dance allowing everybody to have a fast drink of water before the party keeps going.

With Zumba studios showing up everywhere,places are slowly starting to shake 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 4 or five work outs per week because they relish the class SO much.

In an average hour long work-out, you will work off close to five hundred – six hundred calories but can reach up to eight hundred when you pull all of the stops out.
