Imagine this scenario, you are up with groggy eyes at 5 o’clock, lazily and dreading your monotonous run across the park you reluctantly tie your shoes. You don’t want to talk about it right? Believe me, most of the people looking for fitness have been through this and the quest for something which will give the same results yet not be boring, repetitive, and weather dependent leads us to what we know as Zumba.
1Think of the word
Zumba and that itself sounds like a beat coming from a musical instrument. Explore the recesses of your imagination further and see yourself moving to the beats of a musical instrument, enraptured by its sound, floating on the waves emanating from it. And when this extends to others as well, grooving to the beats of music in tandem with others, that spells harmony! And what more could one want when this, apart from giving you unprecedented happiness and fun also gave you that perfect physique that you had always desired! It is so fun-filled, therefore that nobody gets bored with it. Moreover, the presence of others often helps in driving you and encouraging you. All the various forms of dance moves used in this group exercise program are exciting, namely-Salsa, Flamengo, Merengue, etc.
The thumping music to which you are doing your workout will make you feel as if you are in a dance party rather than an exercise regime. There are even classes to suit your taste like Aqua Zumba, Zumba toning, etc. and some even designed for kids. To add to its merits stands the fact that it gives more strength to your core than cardio, kickboxing or step aerobics.
