What is Zumba? ZUMBA ® is a Latin-inspired, dance-fitness class that incorporates Latin and international music and dance movements. It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, calorie-burning dance fitness party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health
1. It’s a blast! It’s so much fun you forget you are actually exercising. It’s ‘exercise in disguise’
2. It’s different! Unlike other fitness classes, ZUMBA uses music and moves that will lift your spirit.
3. It’s easy! Anyone can do ZUMBA, regardless of age, fitness level or dance ability. ZUMBA instructors cleverly design their routines to make it easy for anyone. You may not pick up the steps at first, but who cares! As long as you move and have fun, that’s all that matters. The more you do ZUMBA, the more the steps will come to you. The most important thing is that you have fun.
4. It’s effective! ZUMBA can reshape your whole body. It’s a cardio-based workout using elements of toning. It’s so inspiring to hear some people’s stories of how they lost so much weight and that they feel so much better about themselves just from doing ZUMBA. ZUMBA has truly changed people’s lives for the better.
Attend a class now! Here is what you need to know before attending one of our regular weekly Zumba classes.
FIRST TIMERS: Please ARRIVE EARLY. You will be asked to fill out a PAR-Q form before your first class. Late arrivals will not be permitted to participate in class.
What to Wear / Bring: Wear clothes you can sweat in and good supportive shoes – cross trainers are ideal, and bring water. Make sure you are hydrated before the class and be prepared for a FUN work out!
WHAT ARE THE BEST SHOES TO WEAR IN A ZUMBA ® CLASS?
Zumba Fitness recommends that you wear cross training or aerobic style shoes. They provide the cushion and medial lateral support needed for side-to-side movements. They also have low traction rubber for easy sliding and turning. Please be careful with running shoes since they use a heavy tread on the bottom and are designed for forward movement.
