Groovy music always gets you going? Sounds like Zumba is right up your alley. Dance-xercise to delicious Latin tunes and de-stress at the same time because you’ll be releasing endorphins left and right. Compared to traditional aerobics classes you’re pressured to follow to a T, Zumba is the opposite. It’s free-flowing, fun, and feels more like a dance party than the humdrum that is calisthenics.
Zumba is an interval workout, with the class drifting between low and high intensity dance moves, effectively keeping your heart racing and your blood pumping. It’s designed to enhance flexibility, strength, balance, and is even considered to be an alternative for cardio. Target specific muscle groups like your core, legs, and glutes through tango-like performances. Melt down 500 to a 1000 calories in just 1 hour with this ballroom-inspired workout.
It’s beginner-friendly and welcomes fitness junkies of all levels. It’s fine if you’re not the most skilled dancer, but so long as you’re game to sweat it out, you can definitely rejuvenate your workout routine with a little Zumba. Boogie with us every Saturday at 10 a.m. Don’t forget to manifest positive vibes and to come in with a smile on your face for a fantastic session at PHO!
