Are you trying to find a way to enjoy your workout program and lose weight? Do you like to dance while getting your fitness in? Well, Zumba may be something you’d like to add into your personal work out plan. Zumba is a dance fitness program that was created when founder Alberto “Beto” Perez” had forgotten his prepared music to teach a fitness class and instead used a cassette tape of Latin music that he found in his car. If you’re a music and dance lover, you’ll love Zumba because music is the key ingredient. The Zumba programs borrows Latin flavor from a variety of dance styles such as Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Mambo, Hip Hop, Tango, Reggaeton, ChaChacha, Samba, belly dancing, Bhangra and Flamenco. The Zumba program was created with specific beats and tempo changes, transitions the workout from one toning, strengthening or cardio move to another, and targets every major muscle group in the body.
As we transition into the fall, incorporate a new program into your workout. Zumba anyone?
