What is ZUMBA?

The following was contributed by our friend and local fitness instructor Terri Naccarato of Change it up 360 Zumba:

Perfect for Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it out at all fitness levels. Beginners and fitness minded men and women!

The story of Zumba begins with an accident that seems too good to be true. Back in the 1990’s Colombian, dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez was teaching an aerobics class and he forgot his regular music. So he reached into his backpack and pulled out tapes of salsa and merengue. – and that is how Zumba was born.

Zumba is a dance fitness class and full body workout. As trained Zumba instructors, we take the "work" out of a workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for a 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.  The benefits from a Zumba class is combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class!   The average person will burn around 600 to 1,000 calories in a 1 hour Zumba class.
