Since I was very young we learn to dance from our parent’s hands. But not everybody has this cultural approach. I came from a Latin American country, like Shakira, Ricky Martin and Luis Fonsi (anybody hasn’t listened “Despacito”?), and mainly where the Zumba born. That is why I love to dance but even more workout.
That’s why I seriously recommend this alternative that became a brand and gives a named to the Latin-aerobic classes we used to take a long time ago in my country (an astute businessman who patented the brand). Luckily, Zumba is nowadays a huge success around the world, and there are very good reasons for this. I can assure that Zumba is very perfect for your wellness.
Here are the 4 main reasons to take Zumba classes
1. It has aerobics benefits: At its core, Zumba is a mix of dance and fitness. You will be burning calories with intervals that faster or slower choreographies provide. This maximizes the fat -burning and the work out is for the whole body, this enjoyable fitness methodology touches on nearly every muscle and joint. Aside from the heart.
2. It connects you with the dance: The joyful Zumba Music will bring you cheerful mood, positivity, and intensity. Not everybody is Madonna or Patrick Swayze dancing, however, is not an elementary condition to start Zumba. Choreographies are overall easy, and you will have all the time what you need to get used to every new step. No one will force you to be a professional dancer! On the contrary, you will find sooner being a John Travolta on the dance floor because is easy to remember all moves. Moreover, the energizing and catchy songs will be stuck inside your brain for a while. And you will probably leave every class singing loudly and being up to date with the hip music in clubs
3. Is inclusive: All levels are offered for everybody. Due to Zumba is based on music and dance, is a universal language for people of all ages, nationalities, and sex. Doesn’t matter if you don’t understand the lyrics. You only need to feel the music and don’t be shy about making mistakes. Everybody does! I had instructors who also suggested dancing between us, being easier making new friends.
4. Improves coordination: Zumba classes reinforce coordination which is very important as much as we get older. This body awareness refers to the ability to know where your body is in space, thanks to the beat of the music. Your senses are 100% involve and your brain is working full time. Subsequence, your main body organs: heart and brain will remain active and healthy
Regarding Zumba, I think, the most significant aspect to emphasize, is be conscious we are taking care of ourselves while we are having a lot of fun and working out won’t be noticed as an obligation.
