Zumba Q & A

Zumba is the brand-new dance workout platform that’s taking over the city.

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

Zumba was crafted by Beto Perez from Columbia 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 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 work outs are led with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the instructor to do the steps properly.

The girls in the class just mimic the moves the coach is making but if they can’t 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 excellent 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 also don’t forget you will be very hot! The best shoes to wear are those that will assist your foot support (like an aerobic type shoe). It’s good not to wear a shoe that has too much traction because can cause work load on your knees.

People are encouraged to bring a towel & a drink along them as they’ll become very hot! There is a stop after each track allowing everybody to take a fast drink of water before the exercise starts up.

With Zumba programs opening up everywhere,neighborhoods are slowly starting to tremble as if attacked by an earthquake, as people shimmy, shake & move to the awesome Latin music that is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is addictive with many people having to go to 4 or 5 lessons per week because they appreciate the system SO much.

In an average 1 hour long lesson, you will burn between 500 – six hundred calories but can burn up to 800 if you pull all of the stops out.
