You can get all of your fitness questions answered from a zumba fitness review. Zumba is a form of dance exercise that has been around for years but only recently has started to become popular. Zumba incorporates many different types of dance, cha cha, calypso, belly dancing, mambo, meringue, cumbia and rock & roll to create fun and entertaining exercises. You will have so much fun it won't even feel like exercise.
Zumba offers all levels of classes and much of these dance exercises will provide you better flexibility, strengthen your heart and improve your balance, much like doing yoga and aerobics. Once you start feeling the music you will soon forget you are exercising and just enjoy the dancing.
Zumba not only benefits the body but also the mind and you can expect to have fun meeting new people, enhancing your self esteem, increasing bone density, improving your cognitive thinking, get better motion control, develop a better range of motion and reduce your stress to name but a few advantages.
A zumba class typically runs and hour and in this time you can burn about 500 calories depending on your size and weight. This is a very good match for other types of exercise as jogging for an hour burns about 650 calories, playing sport for an hour about 450 calories and if you swim for an hour you can expect to burn 410 calories.
Zumba classes can be found all over but you should check at your local Y, fitness club or gym. Searching online can also be a good place to find a class as they might be held at a local community center or school. If you cannot find a class then enquire at the local gym. If enough people are interested then they may be able to set up a class.
If you really love Zumba than you should think about becoming an instructor. It does not take very long to become a certified Zumba instructor though you will have to choose between the Zumba Gold and the Zumba Basic Step. These certification classes are available for 1 day and 2 day classes.
If you are getting tired with your regular exercise and want something that is new then try zumba. The music is great, the exercises are fun and once you get into it you will not even realize you are working out.
