What is Zumba Fitness®?
Zumba Fitness is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a “fitness-party” that is downright addictive.
Since its inception in 2001, the Zumba® program has grown to become the world’s largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 14 million people of all shapes, sizes, and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 150 countries. 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.
How many calories are burned in a Zumba workout?
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 400 to 1000 calories.
What are the benefits of a Zumba exercise workout?
Zumba keeps motivation peaked with a catchy soundtrack, plus you get the opportunity to try the moves you’ve secretly always wanted to have a go at!
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.
The routines feature interval training sessions which are currently recognized as one of the best ways to burn fat.
Why is Zumba fun?
The goal of a Zumba Fitness instructor is to make you want to exercise, and to love exercise. 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!
