We guarantee that you will never have so much fun while working out as you will while you are doing Zumba. Zumba is a fitness program that combines Latin and international music with dance moves. The classes typically last about an hour and are taught by a certified Zumba instructor. So, what are some benefits associated with Zumba?

Burns Calories

Zumba combines aerobic and resistance training, which makes it super effective at burning calories. The routines switch between fast high-intensity cardio to slow movements, which keep your metabolism going. Depending on individual differences such as age, gender, and how intense your workout is, you can burn anywhere between 400-600 calories during the exercise!

Increases Endurance

There are no set breaks in Zumba, which help you become accustomed to high-intensity, ongoing workouts, without having to take breaks. You will be surprised at how fast the class goes by.

Boosts Mood

Sometimes going to the gym can be overwhelming, especially when you end up comparing yourself to other gym goers who seem to be lifting more weights or running at faster speeds than you on the treadmill. Exercising releases endorphins and neurotransmitters that improve mood and release stress; how can you not be in a good mood after you have been dancing for an hour, listening to some great music?
