8 Benefits of Zumba

Aug 18, 2022

Dance Your Way Into Shape

If you’ve ever seen a Zumba® class at FITNESS PROJECT, you’ve probably stopped to check it out and noticed its uncanny resemblance to the dance floor on a Saturday night.

Instead of the grunts (and possibly some frowns) you’d hear at your typical CrossFit class, a Zumba class boasts catchy dance music, clapping hands, and even the occasional “WooHoo!” or gasp of excitement from an enthusiastic participant.

Zumba is a workout featuring movements inspired by various styles of Latin American dance and has continued to become more and more popular across the globe.

But is it effective in burning calories, toning your arms, and sculpting muscles? The answer is a resounding YES! More than just a workout- it’s a party! Cardio dance workout to salsa, merengue, cumbia, and hip-hop that you don’t have to be a dancer to do!! The most fun you’ll ever have burning calories! Designed for Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is a fun and energetic way to bring people together to sweat it out. It’s a total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance, and flexibility, boosted energy, and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

Take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check. Other benefits include:

1. It’s fun

The more you enjoy your exercise routine, the more likely you are to stick with it. Many members say they have so much fun dancing that they forget they are actually exercising.

2. Great for weight loss

Zumba is a powerful exercise with a 600 to 1,000-calorie burn in just an hour.

3. Tones your entire body

You may feel sore in places you never knew existed, but it gets results. Zumba targets lots of different muscle groups at once for total body toning.

4. Boosts your heart health

You not only get aerobic benefits (it really gets your heart rate up), but you also get anaerobic benefits – the kind that helps you maintain a good cardiovascular respiratory system.

5. Helps you de-stress

Turning your attention to dance, and away from the daily grind, is a great way to relieve stress. Reduce fatigue, improve alertness and concentration, and enhance overall cognitive function.

6. Improves coordination

In Zumba, your arms and legs are generally moving in different directions so it requires a good deal of coordination.  Repeated practice improves coordination and helps you feel more comfortable moving your body.

7. Makes you happy

Every time you exercise, you release endorphins, which trigger positive feelings throughout the body. 

8. Builds your social circle.

The good energy just multiplies in a Zumba class. Dancing and group exercises can provide a new social context to make friends. Group classes give the opportunity for social interaction and can help to build relationships. The Zumba® community is especially warm and welcoming to newcomers.

These 8 Zumba® benefits are just some of the excellent reasons why you should include Zumba® in your exercise routine. During a Zumba® class, you’ll have fun, meet new people and accomplish a productive workout. Are you interested? Get started with a FREE Class, sign up below.
