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 put together in to a workout with a fantastic party atmosphere.

Zumba was created by Beto Perez from Latin America who one day forgot the music for his aerobics class. All he had was a box of music CDs from his car. With that mixed bag of music the lesson he instructed proved to be very well liked & the rest is history.

It was discovered that alot of students were intimidated by the usual tactics of instucting a fitness lesson. So in comparison all Zumba classes are performed with no or minimal verbal queuing & with no pressure from the trainer to make the steps correctly.

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 suitable for practitioners 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 (Lycra is NOT essential!).

Just take 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 (similiar to an aerobic style shoe). It’s better not to take a shoe that has too much grip since can add pain on your knees.

People are instructed to bring a towel and a bottle of water with them because you’ll get extremely hot! There is a pause in between every dance allowing every one to get a refreshing shot of water before the work out commences.

With Zumba class popping up everywhere,communities are slowly starting to rattle as if struck by an earthquake, as students shimmy, shake & spin to the great Latin music that is Zumba Fitness.

Zumba is addictive with a lot of people having to go to 4 or 5 work-outs per week because they like the program SO much.

In an average hour long work-out, you will work off approximately five-hundred – six hundred calories but can burn up to 8 hundred if you pull all of the stops out.
