Feel good in your body: Zumba dance

written by

Do you want to practice a sport but feel like the actual physical effort common sports require is pretty colossal? Then you might be interested in this method. If you wanna have a great fit body (who doesn’t?) but don’t have the strength to lift weights, you also prefer fun to serious workout then this is just for you.

Zumba.. Dumba Lumba. As the name suggests this is a PLAYFUL workout that combines dance and fitness and has nothing to do with effort. Instead it deals with fun, joy, rhythm, dance, music and connection. And at the end of the class you’ll be entirely wet and fit.

“Zumba classes are ” fitness-parties ” that blend upbeat world rhythms with easy-to-follow choreography, for a total-body workout that feels like a celebration. ” says a short description on the official Zumba website, and no one could have said it better. It really is so. Unlike other sports that we practice for the benefits and endure the huge effort, Zumba is a pleasant way to keep fit, enjoy a party and boost our joy. So, if you already decided Tae bo or aerobics are too Sparta, here is why this might be appropriate for you:

This is the best choice if you:

  • are more fun oriented than serious workout
  • lack strength
  • are not interested in developing particular groups of muscles but wish to have an overall fit look
  • don’t have the time to go to a disco, don’t have the courage to attend a salsa class, or feel stiff because you lack movement.

However, simple dance can sometimes seem frightening to some beginners and it did happen that they ran to aerobics or pilates, ashamed of their lack of rhythm. And then, they decided they are the worst dancers EVER. I know a few people.

The second problem some face at a Zumba class is that they have a hard time  following the movements or cannot keep the pace with the instructor. I know I’ve been through this in my first classes. But hey, riding the bycicle was pretty much the same, so don’t lose your courage. You will catch it eventually. If I could do it, anyone can do it. 😀
