Zumba feels more dancing like than a workout! But make no mistake – Zumba is a serious workout, it’s just that it feels like fun! It is a fusion of International music combined with Latin dance form and makes a heady concoction of heart-pumping cardio workout. Check out some of the best tips to help you get started at Zumba
The first thing that you need to learn is to go to a Zumba class with an open mind. When you are having fun, it’s not only good for your body but for your mind as well.
Dress in comfortable clothes that can handle sweats easily. Also wear sneakers supporting dance movements. The Zumba dance is more towards side to side and pivot, instead of front to back. So, wear shoes that support those movements, like dance sneakers, running shoes with no tread, etc.
Start out with a once or twice a week to build strength and endurance.
As Zumba is a cardio workout, balance it with strength training, stretching and rest.
If you are on a weight loss mission, Zumba is a great and fun exercise to incorporate in your routine. However, ensure that you are taking proper diet and nutrition with strength straining and Zumba to see best results!
