What A Beginner Should Know About Zumba

Zumba is the modern dance exercise class that’s taking over the region.

With various dance steps from meringue & salsa to bollywood & belly dancing they are blended together into a program with a wonderful party atmosphere.

Zumba was crafted by Beto Perez from South America who one day did not remember 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 well received & the rest is history.

It was discovered that countless students were intimidated by the usual stategy of teaching a cardio lesson. So in comparison all Zumba classes are instructed with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the teacher to perform the steps right.

The members in the class just copy the steps the Zumba instuctor is executing but if they can not or don’t desire to do that technique, all they need to do is to do their own thing, keep moving & to have fun fun fun!

Zumba is good for dancers 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 be very hot! The best shoes to use are those that will give your foot support (similiar to an aerobic type shoe). It’s best not to wear a shoe that has too much traction as this can enhance work on your knees.

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

With Zumba places showing up everywhere,places are slowly starting to rattle as if struck by an earthquake, as students shimmy, shake & twirl to the awesome Latin music that is Zumba Fitness.

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

In an average hour long class, you will burn approximately five-hundred – six hundred calories but can burn as many as 8 hundred if you pull all of the stops out.
