Just Move It

As if you didn’t notice your sweat-drenched sports bra isn’t proof enough:  A recent study found that Zumba burn about 570 calories an hour.  And thanks to the beat-pounding music and booty -shaking choreography, the Latin inspired dance-fitness classes feel more like than a workout. I like to take the class at least twice a week as a treat from all of the hard work I have put in, in my other classes.

Here are a list of Zumba variations that can increase your heart rate while having fun.

Zumba Toning – Sculpt as you shake it! During this hour session, you will use weighted sticks to perform upper body exercises while you dance.

Zumba Senato – Senato is another way to amp up the toning elements of aerobics, incorporating triceps dips, squats, and Barre-inspired work.

Zumba In Circuit – This 1/2 hour class is ideal if time is limited;  it alternates 60 second intervals of resistant exercises with signature Zumba moves.

Aqua Zumba – Though gentle on your joints, this 60 minute pool routine is anything but easy.  The water provides resistance, so you work that much harder .
