Why Zumba® Is the Best Pre-Holiday Workout Plan October 8, 2018

Why Zumba® Is the Best Pre-Holiday Workout Plan, Brooklyn, New York

From festive parties to seasonal treats, it’s common for people to gain weight over the holidays. Fortunately, you can keep your waistline under control by joining Zumba®. The fitness cardio class is inspired by a variety of Latin dance styles. Below is an overview of what it is, what to expect from a session, and how it will help you maintain your health and figure.

What Is Zumba?

zumbaZumba is a cardio-dance workout that uses music and choreography from Latin America. The class is about an hour long and begins with a warm-up. Afterward, you’ll participate in several dance routines, each to a different song and pre-choreographed specifically for these classes. Instructors repeat the dance moves to help you learn and use hand signals and demonstrations to teach the steps. The high-intensity intervals and dynamic movements will boost your heart rate and burn calories.

How Often Should I Take It?

While Zumba is an intense cardio workout, it does not involve strength training. To maximize the health benefits, take this class two or three times a week, and supplement it with a weight training regimen to tone your body. Lean muscle speeds up your metabolism, which helps you burn more calories at rest. With this plan in place, you can feel less guilty about any minor holiday indulgences.
