If you’re finding it really hard to shed some pounds through crash diets, or other weight loss programs that don’t work, then you might want to try a more entertaining and self-fulfilling way to lose weight – dance and be fit again using Zumba fitness.
It was in the 90’s when Columbian dancer and choreographer Beto Perez developed the fitness program which uses dance and aerobic movements using energetic and upbeat music. When it started, it initially highlighted Latin moves and music such as soca, samba, salsa, merengue, and mambo, but as the years pass, new and modern dance moves have been incorporated, for example, hip-hop. Fitness routines are as well inserted, such as squats and lunges that also target problem areas.
Fun fitness that works!
A lot of people who are Zumba fitness enthusiasts can prove that this works, and what’s best is that you get to enjoy the activity and have more friends with the simple goal of trying to lose weight. More than 15 million people are now hooked in weekly Zumba classes across the globe.
Getting fit in style
Although some fitness activities like yoga, Pilates, biking, and other hardcore exercises have become more and more popular, Zumba remains one of the most well-loved group exercises; not just in fitness gyms but also in offices and communities. What’s more, Zumba has evolved from a simple group exercise to become an inspiration to fashion. You can find that nowadays some clothing brands produce garments specifically for Zumba.
Zumba classes can be held anywhere!
Zumba lovers do not just gather to dance and get fit, but they also love to attend the weekly Zumba classes in malls, public spots, or special classes to meet and bond with their new friends. Indeed, losing weight with your friends is more enjoyable than locking away in your house and depriving yourself of fun and fitness that you can get from Zumba.
If you’re thinking about joining a Zumba class, you should not hesitate. Get fit and healthy while having fun, it could not get better than that.
