Zumba For Newbies

Zumba For Newbies

Zumba is the unprecedented dance fitness system that is spreading through the country.

With diverse dance routines from meringue & salsa to bollywood & belly dancing they are spun together into a lesson 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 routine he led proved to be very popular and the rest is history.

It was discovered that numerous people were feeling uncomfortable by the old method of leading a workout class. So in comparison all Zumba workouts are led with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the instructor to execute the steps properly.

The ladies in the class just copy 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 great for practitioners over the age of 16 and is excellent 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 bear in mind you’ll get very hot! The best shoes to use are ones that will give your foot support (similiar to an aerobic style shoe). It’s better not to bring a shoe that has too much grip since can add pain on your knees.

People are asked to bring a towel & a drink along them as they’ll become very hot! There is a stop in between each dance allowing everybody to have a little taste of water before the party keeps going.

With Zumba classes popping up everywhere,communities are slowly starting to rattle as if hit by an earthquake, as performers shimmy, shake & spin to the strong Latin songs that is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is catching with a lot of people having to go to 4 or five work outs per week because they like the program SO much.

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