When it comes to fads and exercise crazes they seem to come and go really quickly, however one that is looking to stand the test of time is Zumba. The fitness class inspired by Latin dancing is hugely popular now the world over and is getting more and more popular as time goes on since it started in 1990’s, but the success of the classes happened in the early 2000’s when it was introduced for the first time in the US.
For anyone who has a bit of rhythm and enjoys dancing then Zumba is the perfect way to get you into exercising. If you do not like going to the gym and doing something tedious like running on the treadmill this is a really fun way to get fit. When you have fun exercising the time will go by so much quicker and it won’t feel like a chore to do. The key to keeping up with your exercise regime is to find something you really enjoy and Zumba has proven to be this for a large number of people across the globe.
The original Zumba has expanded too and there are a number of different classes, some tailored for older adults and others that will be a great option for those who really enjoy being in water. There is something to suit your taste and the best thing is you feel exhilarated and looking forward to your next class afterwards! It is a really good class to go to with a family member or friend to.
The fusion of salsa, meringue, flamenco, hip hop, bhangra and more creates a unique play list and an endless opportunity for different moves that keeps this class fresh and different every time. With the fast pace moves of the original Zumba class, you are able to burn over 500 calories, even 1000 if you really put a lot of effort in. There are a number of celebrity names who claim to take part in these classes too which will have also helped to influence the high numbers of participants. So if you have not tried out this fitness sensation yet, get yourself down to a class to see what all the fuss is about!
