Zumba Explained

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

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

Zumba was invented by Beto Perez from Latin America 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 taught proved to be very exciting & the rest is history.

It was discovered that a lot of members were intimidated by the usual technique of instucting a fitness lesson. So in comparison all Zumba lessons are taught with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the director to make the steps correctly.

The ladies in the class just copy the steps the instructor is performing but if they can not or do not desire to do that step, all they have to do is to do their own thing, keep moving & to have fun fun fun!

Zumba is outstanding for somenone over the age of 16 and is great for all groups of fitness and experience. For people younger than that there’s Zumbatomic. There is no dress code (Lycra is NOT essential!).

Just wear what you feel comfortable in but do do not forget you’ll get extremely hot! The best shoes to bring are ones that will offer your foot support (like an aerobic style shoe). It’s better not to take a shoe that has too much grip since can create pain on your knees.

People are instructed to bring a towel and a bottle of water with them since you’ll become extremely hot! There is a pause in between every song allowing everyone to have a small taste of water before the workout continues.

With Zumba classes showing up everywhere,places 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 four or 5 classes per week because they appreciate the system SO much.

In an average 1 hour long lesson, you will melt approximately five-hundred – six hundred calories but can burn up to 800 when you pull all of the stops out.
