What Is Zumba?
Zumba is a dance and fitness program inspired by Latin dance styles and upbeat dance music. It’s a fun-packed energetic full body workout that builds fitness and burns body fat. It is a great option if you don’t enjoy regular exercise and want to workout with a smile on your face. The Zumba Fitness program was launched in 2001 after being developed by a Colombian Aerobics instructor. Ten years later and there are now 6 different Zumba fitness programs (including Aqua Zumba), and Zumba is being enjoyed by 10 million people every week in over 100 countries.The secret of Zumba’s success has to be the fun factor it brings to exercise, if you are really enjoying something then the time passes quickly and you get a decent workout (without realising it’s actually exercise).
The Benefits Of Exercising In Water
There are numerous health benefits to exercising in water and it provides a challenging workout for your body. Here are some good reasons for exercising in water: –
Less Impact And Stress On the Body
The buoyancy of the water helps to support your body weight, putting less stress and impact on your joints than regular exercise. This aids movement and flexibility, making it ideal for older people and people recovering from muscular injuries.
Greater Muscle Resistance
Water has a higher density than air, providing greater resistance for your muscles. This will allow you to build up strength and tone muscles easier. When you move your body and muscles, the water will provide resistance in all directions. Exercising in water also gives you a greater cardio workout as your muscles work against resistance.
Provides A Complete Workout
Exercising in water works your muscle groups and provides a good cardio workout at the same time, saving you valuable time.
