Do you Zumba? Do you even know what Zumba is?
ZUMBA is a fusion of Latin and International music - dance themes creating a fun workout. The routines feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body. Zumba utilizes the principals of fitness interval training and resistance training to maximize caloric output, fat burning and total body toning. It is a mixture of body sculpting movements with easy to follow dance steps. Even while browsing the website, I couldn't keep from tapping my feet to the beat. Zumba's roots come from Colombia where Beto Perez (celebrity trainer) stumbled upon latin inspired fitness in the mid 1990's.
Zumba will definitely get you sweating and it may even inspire you to take a salsa (or merengue) class. The best part? It's really easy to forget how much rhythm you may actually lack when strutting your stuff to Zumba -- If you like to dance, you'll get a kick out of Zumba.
