10 Health Benefits of Zumba

I LOVE ZUMBA. The dance fitness program created by Columbian choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez, combines  hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves as well squats and lunges and is my favorite group exercise class to attend. For me, Zumba gives me a total body workout while simultaneously relieving stress and increasing my endorphins.

I am excited to share with you the recent blog post from  Boost Fitness (my gym!) on the 10 Health Benefits of Zumba. I couldn’t agree with them more!

  1. A huge calorie burn. Studies have shown an average of 800-1,000 calories burned per hour!
  2. Total Body Toning – You will feel sore in places you did not expect!
  3. It keep’s you coming back! You will look forward to exercise…
  4. Amazing Results
  5. It works for all ages – young and old!
  6. A great stress release.
  7. Can be adapted for any fitness level. Experienced or novice – come join the party!
  8. Time will fly – the hour class will go by too fast!
  9. It is a social event – make new friends
  10. It makes people happy!
