Have you been bitten by the Zumba bug??? I have and I’m in LOVE!!!
Zumba has completely changed my perspective on “working out.” I have even noticed a few abdominal muscles that I never knew existed!
Zumba offers you a workout that is atypical from your regular routine. One of the major adjustments I had to make was getting my body to move outside of its linear pattern. Every day you walk forward; on a treadmill you are running forward, or if you venture out and hop on the elliptical, you are still moving forward. Zumba forces the body to extend itself in a way that it is not use to moving and this in-turn causes it to work harder and burn more calories! #WINNING
The benefits of Zumba are incredible, but it’s a sneaky monster. You think you are having fun shaking your rump by dancing and jamming out to the fun music, but when you wake up the next morning your body is like, “What on earth did you do to me??? I thought that was supposed to be FUN!” Even with the after effects you feel the next morning, you are still thinking about all the fun you had and you are drawn to go back for more fun…or torture! Confusing huh?
In a typical Zumba class you can burn anywhere from 300 to 800 depending upon your intensity level. You will defiantly get a full body work-out that will keep you coming back and with consistency you will begin to notice amazing results. One of the things I really love about Zumba is that it works for all ages, all body types and it is for both men and women! Like yoga, it is a great stress release and forces you to be more conscience of body movement. The classes go by so fast and it is also a great way to meet new people in your community. And because Zumba has become so recently popular, you can always find a class near you.
