Get Your Dance on with Zumba (GuestPost)

Get Your Dance on with Zumba!
Originating in Columbia, Zumba is a dance fitness program that people everywhere are raving about. Zumba has become so popular due to its personalization to any one person’s fitness level, age, or preference. It combines dance and resistance training and is a fun, low-impact routine for just about anyone. A daily Zumba routine can benefit even the most out of shape individual as well as the most experienced fitness buff.

Zumba Promotes Weight Loss
Zumba can burn 350 to 900 calories in just an hour long session. This number will depend on your body type, age, gender, and the intensity of the workout. By simply decreasing your caloric intake by 200, and burning an extra 300 calories at Zumba, you can potentially lose a pound per week. This gradual weight loss is the most effective form of weight loss and will ensure long-lasting results.

Zumba Targets Your Full Body
Since Zumba is comprised of dance moves, it provides a workout for your entire body. It has many benefits for hearth health, as it is an excellent cardio workout. Also, Zumba will engage everything from your head and neck to your legs and feet. The routine touches on just about every joint and muscle in your body. A good Zumba workout will hit every muscle group, while focusing on hips, abs, thighs, and butts.

Zumba is Easy to Learn
Even the most uncoordinated individuals can catch on to a Zumba routine. Some classes offer beginners courses that start off with smaller, slower dance moves. However, most people can effectively jump straight in to a Zumba class and pick it up fairly easily. Zumba instructors teach primarily with their body movements. Few words are necessary to communicate in this universal language of dance. The music and your instructors movements are all you need to get your Zumba on.

Zumba is FUN

While many work-out routines can be monotonous, you will never have to force yourself to go to a Zumba class. Zumba is fun for everyone. Not only does it get you moving, but attending Zumba class can be like a party. The people around you will be smiling and enjoying themselves as you all dance and have a great time, not even focusing on the work-out you are getting. You will find yourself looking forward to your Zumba classes and feeling more energized.

Zumba Can Change You
Not only will Zumba give you life and energy, but Zumba will ignite a passion and confidence you probably didn’t know you possessed. Once you get the routine down, you will be amazed at the confidence you feel while gliding through your Zumba routine. A mixture of this confidence and the body movements will bring out your passionate side. You will notice a change in every aspect of your life. Zumba truly is a work-out for your mind, body, and spirit.

While many work-out routines can promise results, not many have the added benefits that you will experience with Zumba. This routine can change your life. You will find yourself picking up the routines quickly and eagerly awaiting your next Zumba class. In the meantime, your body will be burning calories and toning up, right before your eyes. It’s no wonder this dance fitness routine is taking the world by storm.
