Zumba – a fun way to lose weight and stay in shape
Have you heard about zumba? If the answer is “No” then you’re in for a treat. Zumba is a fun and active workout program which will lift your spirits while burning up all those extra pounds. Learn more about it below and try it yourself!
Originating in the ‘90s, Zumba combines dancing and aerobic elements, such as lunges and squats. Its choreography is quite diverse, borrowing moves and rhythms from merengue, bachata, hip-hop, mambo, samba, salsa, and even martial arts.
Usually a session lasts one hour. The music starts out fast, and slows down towards the end. The fast part is great for working out all the muscles of the body, while the slower rhythms towards the end promote relaxation.
Besides losing weight, you will have lots of fun and you can make many new friends.
If you don’t have the time to go to the gym and get training from a professional instructor, zumba can be easily performed in the comfort of your own home. You can just put on a video demonstration, and follow the routine on screen.
Age is not a limit! From little children to old folks, zumba can be practiced by anyone. All you have to do is give it a try – you’ll see the results in no time!
