What is Zumba Good For?


Zumba has become very popular for good reasons. Similar to yoga, it offers amazing benefits for your health and well-being. In addition, Zumba is very fun to do! It does not feel like a workout at all, more like dancing to beats of salsa, flamenco, foxtrot, cumbia, reggaeton, belly dance, waltz, samba, tango and merengue music. Needless to say that this dance workout/party is one of the most popular group exercise classes in the world.



What If I Am Not Good At Dancing?

Zumba classes are very high energy. You will need a bit of stamina to practice Zumba and reap its benefits. But luckily, you don't have to be a great dancer at all. Just focus on having fun!

Make sure to clear your mind, to forget what people might think of you and just enjoy the present moment. No rhythm required, just having a good time. It is perfect for beginners, regardless of your fitness level.



Are There Different Types of Zumba?

Yes. There are many different forms of Zumba classes such as Zumba for children, Aqua Zumba, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold and a more traditional version of Zumba.

Some kinds of Zumba use weight for more calorie burning and strength training. Other will focus more on your core strength or stamina and flexibility. In general, Zumba is a great cardio workout. It is very useful and effective for weight-loss. You will gain strength and burn plenty of excess fat by training large muscle groups from the legs and lower back in a Zumba class.
