The incredibly popular Latin-inspired dance-fitness class has attracted millions of exercisers with a fun fusion of dance moves like Salsa, Merengue, Reggaeton and Flamenco, and the sort of choreography you might see in a nightclub.
In fact, it’s pretty much an international phenomenon and what’s great about it is that it’s fun and keeps you fit too! A much better substitute than doing cardio at the gym and staring at the walls!
During a Zumba class, you engage a ton of muscles and are often unaware that you’re incorporating traditional fitness like squats and lunges into the choreography routine which tones your body from head to toe.
Think of the feeling of going to a party or chilling with friends after work. It’s enjoyable and releases stress. This is the same effect Zumba has on a person who doesn’t like to be a gym rat or necessarily like fitness. With Zumba you won’t feel like you’re working out but rather dancing and forgetting all the day’s stress.
The best thing about Zumba is apart from all the fun you’re having at a Zumba class, you also end up burning calories as well which leads to weight loss. The average person will burn around 600 to 1000 calories in a Zumba class. That’s quite a lot, right? And the best part is that you won’t even notice all that effort it actually requires.
