An effective workout that can burn up to 400 calories per class, Zumba has rapidly gained popularity since its introduction to health clubs and dance studios. Combining aerobic dance moves with South American beats, the classes provide an interval-style, full-body workout that is safe for a range of ages and fitness levels. Currently, nearly 4 million Zumba enthusiasts learn from 25,000 instructors in 40 countries around the world.
As with other regular cardiovascular workouts, Zumba boasts multiple health benefits beyond calorie burn, including increased stamina, increased bone density, lower blood pressure, and improved balance. Participants also enjoy the social atmosphere and the stress relief the workout provides.
