A fun dance-fitness class, incorporating Latin and world styles of dance, creating a dynamic, exciting and effective fitness workout.
What is Zumba®?
Zumba® is a fun dance-fitness class, available throughout our Fitness & Wellbeing estate. It incorporates Latin and world styles of dance, creating a dynamic, exciting and effective fitness workout for all.
The cardio-based dance movements incorporated into Zumba® are easy to follow and help to sculpt and tone your entire body without you even realising you are working out.
Zumba® has become a fitness sensation in recent years across the globe, due to its suitability for people of all fitness levels and all ages, but mainly because it is simply great fun!
What to expect from a Zumba® class
When people see a Zumba® class in action, they usually can’t wait to give it a try themselves.
The classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international sounds. Before you know it, you will be getting fit, improving your body shape, burning calories and most participants even see their energy levels soar too.
Zumba® classes are easy to follow, effective at getting you fit and exhilarating to take part in. We often find within our centres a fantastically loyal Zumba® community can develop, bridging age gaps, genders and international divides.
Is Zumba® suitable for me?
Zumba® classes are suitable for dancers and non-dancers, men and women, old and young.
Zumba® creates a party-like atmosphere that provides a non-intimidating environment in which to participate in a fun group exercise.
As well as Zumba® Fitness there is;
- Aqua Zumba® -
Integrates the winning Zumba® formula with traditional aqua exercise disciplines. Aqua Zumba® provides a safe, challenging workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning and most of all fun. The resistance of the water supports your weight and ensures a thorough workout for the entire body.
- Zumba® Toning -
Combines body-sculpting exercise techniques and cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba® moves, creating a fun, calorie burning, strength-training dance workout. You will learn how to use lightweight Toning Sticks to help tone arms, abs, glutes and thighs. Zumba® Toning is the perfect way for men and women of all ages to sculpt their bodies naturally.
- Zumba® Gold -
The movements and pace of a Zumba® Gold class are adapted to meet the needs of older or less able participants. However the Latin inspired music, salsa rhythms, exhilarating, easy-to-follow steps and the party-like atmosphere remain very much the same.
Combining two fitness classes in a row can have a bigger impact on your fitness than you may think. Personal Trainer Rob Brown provides a round-up of some of the benefits.
