General Health Benefits for Zumba Fitness Classes
What’s the most common reason people stop exercising? Lack of time and boredom. Zumba addresses both of these problems by providing a total body workout in one session and making exercise fun. The music is lively and the mood is incredibly upbeat in a Zumba exercise class. Time goes by quickly because the dance routines are anything but boring. Most people look forward to coming to class – and so they keep coming – and seeing results.
Considering Zumba's lively music, laid-back atmosphere and easy dance steps, it is more of a good time than an exercise class - it's an incredibly fun workout.
After a fun workout like Zumba, people may feel more happy and relaxed than they would after doing an exercise they were not thrilled about doing. If someone looks forward to doing the workout, it can be easier and more fun to get through.
It’s a great stress reliever
Zumba dance routines are all about releasing your inhibitions and losing yourself in the movements. Some people who attend Zumba classes say it’s better than therapy. Not only do the energetic moves cause release of mood altering endorphins, you can feel your worries melt away as you lose yourself in the music and the movements.
Zumba steps are simple enough for most people to master. There are a very limited number of steps per number, so the choreography is not so complicated that the participant has to concentrate on doing them at the expense of enjoyment. Those who want to try fitness or dance classes but are not adept at mastering choreography can likely do well with Zumba.
It’s a form of interval traininng
Zumba works the entire body, including the arms and legs. It helps to strengthen the body's core and slim down body, all while doing basic moves.
Many Zumba dance moves are a great way to work the core abdominal muscles – the girdle of muscles that gives the pelvis its strength. This means firmer abdominals and a lower risk of back pain.
