Zumba

Zumba is an exercise fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s.

Zumba involves dance and aerobic movements performed to energetic music. The choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included.

Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. Zumba routines incorporate interval training — alternating fast and slow rhythms — and resistance training.

Benefits of Zumba

1. Zumba is a total-body cardio and aerobic workout,
which provides a large calorie consumption.

2. A study shows that a person burns 300 to 900kcal
with an hour-long Zumba exercise.

3. Because Zumba offers different options, proponents of
the Zumba program claim that it is safe for all ages,
meaning that anyone from age 0 to 100 can participate
in this form of aerobic exercise.

4. Some of the classes are specifically aimed at elderly
people, to help them build strength, improve motion
and posture, and socialize.
