Zumba classes are a great way to burn calories and fat, they keep you moving at a fast pace and your moving your whole body not just your legs when your are just walking.
Zumba will help you increase your balance and flexibility which is something we all never get enough of in our lives.
Zumba will improve your rhythm and coordination which is something we seem to happen as we get older and out of shape.
Zumba is a great starter exercise program to help prepare your body for harder aerobic activity like interval training.
Zumba moves are specifically designed to make certain muscles move repeatedly, thus toning them without you even noticing.
Zumba is an intense and fun exercise program, between the music and body movement your body will secrete serotonin, the happy hormone that makes you feel better.
Zumba will increase your confidence. Gym classes usually have a mirror in front, so if you attend Zumba classes you'll get to see how your body looks like when you're dancing.
Those of us who are a little scared of their lack of dancing skills, will gradually gain confidence and improve in just a few Zumba sessions.
After a few classes you will begin to lower your inhibitions and experience better coordination, which will improve your self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself.
These changes will affect your mood positively and will help you get rid of some of that stress.
Zumba has both aerobic and anaerobic benefits.
The music that plays in Zumba classes will be around 145 beats per minute, a fast pace that allows to move around naturally and quickly. Because of this, Zumba is perfect if you're trying to build endurance.
You can practice in almost anywhere and don't need any equipment. You can choose to go to a gym to participate in a Zumba class or do it at home with a video. (got one below for you)
The intensity of a Zumba class is scalable, you move at your own level to the beat of the music, so if at any point you feel you can't follow the moves of the instructor, you can always reduce your intensity which makes it great for any age and fitness level.
Zumba will boost your confidence and mood when practiced regularly and will make you feel much better with yourself, not only on the outside but also on the inside.
