Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and
choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez during the 1990s. For
over ten years, the Latin based aerobic dance and fitness sensation
Zumba has been gaining popularity. Popular in homes and gyms around
the world for its focus on fun, high energy fitness, a Zumba workout
burns calories and helps you to lose weight. Workouts can vary in
intensity, and calorie burn from a Zumba session depends on an
individual's weight, fitness level and muscle composition. During an
hour long session you can expect to burn anywhere from 300 to 600
calories depending on the intensity of your Zumba class.
As your body gets used to a particular exercise routine, you may find your weight loss begins to tail off. Finding an enjoyable alternative fitness workout can be tricky, and keeping to it can be even harder. Therefore Zumba dance workouts can prove to be immensely beneficial for your entire body fitness and helping you lose extra pounds.
Music is naturally the main ingredient to Zumba classes and helps to move the workout from one toning, strengthening or cardio move to another, targeting every major muscle group in the body. Dance classes are designed to be fun and high-energy, making Zumba an enjoyable way to lose weight and improve fitness. Anyone can do Zumba - even if you are new to exercise. The goal of the Zumba dance instructors is to make people want to work out, and to love working out. Fun and easy to do, Zumba is the type of fitness exercise you'll want to do every day and enjoy doing it. By the end of the class, you?ll wish you started years ago!
