Zumba is super trendy and it’s not hard to see why. Of course, it’s been hard to go into the gym for a Zumba class in the last couple of years, but now these classes are getting started again. Luckily, it’s also possible to do Zumba at home through Zoom or a YouTube video. Here’s why you should give it a try!

Full-Body Workout

Zumba is both a full-body workout and great cardio. It tones every muscle in your body through a wide range of upbeat movements. It also required jumping and moving quickly on your feet for extended periods of time, which is a great way to get your heart pumping.

Increased Pain Tolerance and Endurance

In addition to cardio and muscular help, studies have actually found that Zumba may increase pain tolerance and endurance because it requires you to do something difficult with the constant movement for a long period of time. Unlike weight lifting or rotation workouts, there’s no built-in rest period!

It’s Fun

Finally, Zumba took off for one really good reason: it’s just plain fun! It’s basically dancing to upbeat music with lots of other people. Working out can be really hard to get excited about, so making it fun turns it into something to look forward to!
