So what is Zumba all about?
Zumba has been taking the world by storm since the 1990s. It is the class that started the dance fitness revolution and it has changed the way we look at workouts forever. Today, approximately 15 million people take part in weekly Zumba classes in over 200,00 locations, across 180 countries. It’s that massive because it’s that awesome.
It is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez in the 1980s. It incorporates dance and aerobic movements to energetic music. The choreography involves hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included, but you’ll be so caught up in the dance and the great music that you probably won’t notice them. The music is so varied you will never be bored. But be warned. The rhythm IS gonna get you. It is super effective and super fun, it works cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility and a single class will burn up to 650 calories, depending on your weight and the intensity of your workout.
Zumba is for everyone and brings everyone together. It takes the ‘work’ out of workout by mixing low intensity and high intensity moves for a calorie burning party. In fitness terms it has been around forever, and the reason it’s still filling fitness classes after 30 years is because it is the greatest dance class you’ll ever do. Yes, it’s dancey, and after only a few classes you’ll feel like Shakira, (even if you don’t look like her), but don’t let dancey put you off. The great thing about Zumba classes is that you do your own thing, at your own pace. You can wiggle, shake and gyrate as much or as little as you want, be as restrained or as flamboyant as you like. And don’t worry that it will be too difficult. In a few weeks at a you will be nailing those routines. Remember, in Zumba, there are no wrong moves, only accidental solos!!! All we ask at 24 Fit Derby is that you do what makes you happy, keep moving and keep smiling.
