Long gone are the days when exercise was considered to be boring and mundane and done in oversized t-shirts and jogging bottoms.
Since Zumba hit gyms, village halls and studios, it has become a fitness phenomenon that has captured the heart of millions. The brilliant thing is, it isn’t only tremendously effective but it is really, really good fun and totally inclusive. Whether you are a teenager, new mum or pensioner, there is a Zumba workout that is right for you.
Zumba combines many different dances styles including hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo whilst also incorporating squats and lunges. In one hour a female weighing between 135lbs & 155lbs can expect to burn off approximately 400 calories and really start to get in shape. As you can also have fun, go along with your friends and start to see a whole new level in your fitness, it is easy to see why over 15 million people take weekly Zumba classes in over 200,000 places across 180 countries.
We asked a few people why the are hooked on Zumba:
“I go to Zumba with my mum and sister every week and as well as getting a great workout we have fun together and catch up”.
“Zumba doesn’t even feel like exercise as you are so busy having fun and trying to work out where your feet go next”.
“I will be 56 next month and I LOVE Zumba”.
