Zumba has made its way to the top of fitness classes all over the world and if you have never given it a shot, now is the time!
It’s easy to get bored or to hit a rut with cardio and plain old weight training. A new fitness class sounds appealing, but would your first pick be the class with a lot of booty-shaking and loud salsa/pop music? Since Zumba classes are jammed with positive, infectious energy, you might find yourself shaking your booty with the crowd in no time! Zumba often brings people out of their comfort zones, and many people have great weight loss experience with this new path to fitness. It’s a great form of cardio while tightening and toning those abs and leg muscles. Not to mention it is a great way to actually enjoy your workout!
You can find classes offered at local gyms, or maybe at local churches. Check billboards or online for Zumba classes offered in your area. If you are a beginner and are just looking to try it for the first time, be sure to know that may feel awkward at first. Once you get into the rhythm of the class, it does get easier. It’s not about learning every step correctly or swinging your hips as perfectly as your instructors. Just feel the music, follow the best you can, and have fun!
Below we have compiled several Zumba videos to help you get fit and burn calories, all while having a fun, fat burning blast.
