Sunday, February 19, 2012 – If you like to dance, then you will love Zumba. It is an amazing aerobic workout – it really makes you sweat! This is one workout that doesn’t feel like exercise, it is so much fun. You’ll burn all kinds of calories and maybe lose a few pounds too.
Since the move I haven’t had the chance to see if there are any classes in my new neighborhood. In the meantime I do Zumba routines I find on youtube or on my Wii. Zumba for the Wii is pretty good – if you really get into it, it can be a good work out!
What is Zumba?
Zumba’s website describes it as - an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party™ that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health. Check out Zumba’s website for more information and the different types of Zumba classes.
If you can salsa, merengue or samba then you already know a bit of Zumba. If you don’t, that’s OK because with a good instructor you will learn how to Zumba in no time. Sometimes your hips will be moving like a belly dancer, sometimes like a hip-hop dancer and you will always be moving. Be prepared to sweat and have fun!
Here is my favorite routine from youtube, this guy is really funny!
