Seeking a calorie incinerator that’s both helpful and fun? Zumba is the workout for you!
Zumba is a Latin-style based workout with easy-to-follow dance steps to Spanish-style beats. This makes the workout fun – but what really makes it great is that it burns anywhere from 600-1000 calories per hour alone.
The word ‘Zumba’ derives from a Columbian phrase that means to move quickly and have fun. Zumba uses exciting and up-beat music with a cardiovascular exercise regimen. This creates aerobic dancing that is easy to learn, burns lots of calories, and tons of fun.
Zumba is becoming increasingly popular with people of all ages and sizes. When dancing during a Zumba class, it’s so easy to forget that you’re even burning any calories. This makes you able to exercise longer and, in turn, burn more calories.
If you’re wondering what exactly a Zumba class is like, it’s a combination of many things. It last about an hour to an hour and a half and it intertwines several different dancing styles.
The most popular are salsa, reggae, mamba, and meringue. Depending on what kind of instructor you get, he or she may or may not incorporate belly dancing into the class as well – which helps tone up your abs.
Although Zumba is super-fun and high energy, don’t think that it will be easy by any stretch of the imagination. Zumba is a full body workout and you’ll feel it the next day. If you have a lot of energy and enjoy learning dance moves, this is the fitness regimen for you.
