Zumba is a fun, upbeat, dance party led by our very own dancer with passion Sarah Santich. Just her energy and excitement alone is reason enough to want to keep coming back, but the workout itself isn’t bad either!!!
Perfect For Everybody and every body! Each Zumba class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.
“We take the “work” out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you’ll see why Zumba Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class” (Zumba Fitness website).
Back in the 1990s, a Colombian dancer and choreographer developed a program that he called Zumba, which combines elements of dance and aerobics, including many different styles of South American-inspired dancing. Zumba’s fun, engaging nature has made it one of the most popular new styles of exercise, and is regularly practiced by over 15 million people in more than 175 countries. The exercise classes are typically one hour in length, and are led by a trained Zumba professional.
“The key component of Zumba that makes it so effective is its combination of resistance training and aerobic exercise. The fluctuation from controlled movements to rapid, high-intensity cardiovascular exercise keeps your metabolism in high gear for an hour at a time, which can equal anywhere from 300-600 calories burned in a single hour, depending on your age, sex, and workout intensity. If you’re looking for a high-efficiency fat-burning approach, this workout style is ideal!” (Organicfacts).
If you love to dance, have a good time and make your workout feel like a party, then Zumba is for you!
