Dance out all your worries from your body with Zumba!
Zumba is not a novelty among group lessons, but still, this combination of aerobic and Latin-American dances is popular. Why?
The whole lesson is fun, and no one will shout at you when you do not strictly copy the trainer’s moves. Moreover, it is up to you how much energy you put into the dance and how much you get involved. So, it is the ideal choice for those who do not like hard drilling and are looking for non-violent but effective movement.
How the lesson looks like
It is an interval (“intermittent”) training, in which slow and fast parts alternate, and you always practice it standing. Thanks to this, the heart rate is maintained effectively in the aerobic zone, the fats are burned, and the body is shaped. A class usually lasts 60 minutes. The instructor warms you up with exercises similar to aerobic and then comes an endless dance party.
What dances are in Zumba?
Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, Cumbia, Reggaeton, Cha-cha, Samba, Calypso, Jive, but you can also meet with Hip-hop culture or Flamenco.
Great things happen randomly. That applies to Zumba as well
Zumba was created by accident in the 90’s when the Colombian choreographer and fitness trainer Alberto Perez arrived at his aerobics class and realised he forgot the music. So, he used the one he listened to in the car, started to improvise, and the clients were so pleased with the concept that they began to demand these aerobic dance classes themselves.
