Why You Should Try Zumba for Better Health
By Genevieve Cunningham
So you’re looking for a new workout to spice up your exercise routine. You’ve grabbed the local gym schedule and you’re perusing the classes offered. Some you can’t quite pronounce, others you know you won’t enjoy, and then there are the rest. Which of these routines should you give a try? If you’re looking for something fun and feisty to get you in shape, take a look at these reasons to give your local zumba class a try.
It’s Incredibly Fun
OK, let’s address the elephant in the room first. Zumba is so, so, so much fun. Ask anyone who attends class regularly and this will likely be one of the biggest reasons that they keep going back. Zumba is like an aerobic dance. The music is fast, the workout is dance focused, and you’ll feel silly and exhilarated all at the same time. If you’re looking for a workout to wake you up and make you feel alive, zumba is one of your very best options.
It’s Fast Paced and Burns Massive Calories
Just because it’s fun doesn’t mean that it’s not really hard. Zumba is very fast-paced. In fact, you might have a little trouble keeping up in the beginning. But don’t get discouraged! You’ll find your groove, and when you do, you’ll find that you’re burning massive amounts of calories with each session. You’ll walk out of the gym sweaty, tired, sore, but completely satisfied.
It Works New Muscles
Zumba has a way of working muscles that you didn’t even know you had. That little muscle in your side that only shows up with hip movement … yep, you’re definitely going to work that. The muscle that runs along your shin bone? Expect to feel it! You'll feel muscles popping up all over your body, and you'll have no idea where they came from. But this is actually good news. As you slim down, your body will take on a whole new shape that you (and your significant other) are sure to love.
You might be a little shy or embarrassed on your first visit, but zumba can be an excellent option for better health. You’ll dance the fat off, sculpt your body, and you’ll probably be smiling ear to ear the entire time. Just check your ego at the door, and enjoy the experience for all the fun it has to offer.
