The benefits of Zumba
Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto Beto Perez during the 1990s. Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements. The choreography includes hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included.
Zumba is a weight bearing aerobic exercise that has numerous health benefits including tighter abs, improved balance and coordination, calorie burn, increased aerobic threshold, more stamina, increased bone density, improved balance and muscle tone, less body fat and lower blood pressure.
Any aerobic exercise provides a release of the feel good hormones, endorphins, which give you a natural high. The endorphin rush in Zumba is enhanced by the combination of slow then fast music beats, which makes you want to move your body and free your inhibitions. Endorphin release and the succeeding high translate to better and more upbeat moods so an extra benefit of Zumba is the relief of emotional and psychological stress.
