What is Zumba Dance Fintess? If you are newbie and have no idea as to what Zumba is, let me give you a quick breakdown.
What is Zumba? Zumba is a high-energy dance class that is set to upbeat Latin music and you end up doing different choreographed dance routines that you see at some of the best nightclubs in Latin America.
Essentially, Zumba is a dance fitness class where you dance to get fit and lose weight. The Zumba tagline, “Ditch the Workout, Join the Party,” the classes focuses on moving to the music and having a good time, no rhythm required.
There are different kinds of Zumba classes and you can find yourself doing Aqua Zumba workouts, which is done in a pool. You also have Zumba Toning, that incorporate weights for additional calorie burning and strength training. You can even bring your kids along, as they have specific Zumba classes for them.
The great thing about Zumba, is that in a 60-minute class, you will be able to burn on average, 369 calories. This is a really intense class, as it burns more that step aerobics or cardio kickboxing.
With Zumba, you will get great cardio workout that burns fat, strengthens your core, and improves flexibility.
Come out and enjoy your Zumba class, it is something you will not regret.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO ZUMBA CLASS?
I can’t stress this enough, but you should definitely be looking to be as comfortable as possible for this intense class. So you need to consider wearing clothes that you will feel at ease moving around in. You can wear anything from sweat pants, shorts, loose fittings tops and anything else. Whatever is lightweight and fits you right, is the good thing to wear. It is not a good idea to wear jeans to Zumba class, as that is something you might regret.
When it comes to shoes, you can wear anything that is comfortable to dance in. If you want to take it up a notch, you can wear sneakers that are designed specifically for Zumba. (This website has a pretty good selection). While dance aerobics shoes are a good option, they are not a must. If you decide to wear whatever shoes you have, keep in mind to stay away from running shoes. Running sneakers have too much grip and they will not work in Zumba, especially with all the twists and turns that you will be doing.
Some Shoe Sources to checkout:
You should know that it is pretty important to stay hydrated. If you can drink some water before class and carry with you a bottle of water or Gatorade, as you are going to be losing a lot of liquids and you will need to replenish it.
You can also bring along a towel as you are going to get sweaty and you might need to dry off.
I HAVE BAD KNEES IS THIS CLASS STILL DOABLE?
Off the bat, Zumba is one pretty intense class. You will be doing a variety of moves, from twists, turns and jumping. If you suffer from bad knees or any other ailment, then it is a good idea to let one of your instructors know. If they are aware of your situation, they probably can recommend different moves for you to do that is not as stressful on the body.
This will all depend on what your doctor has to say. If you get the OK, then it is ok to come to the class. Bare in mind that there might be some excercises that you will not be able to do, so tell the instructors before you begin.
If you eat properly and you do this class, I can guarantee that you are going to be losing weight, while also having tons of fun.
