Zumba is a Latin based dance fitness program fusing international and national rhythms. Beto Perez, the creator of this world wide phenomenon started with the music and rhythms that best represented his Colombian heritage, then expanded upon that base offering the sounds from hundreds of world renowned artists. Stepping into a Zumba class is like taking a short trip "around the world!" It's an escape, a get away from life's stresses, a place to be free, have fun and bathe in the musical rhythms. There is never a need to have dance experience to join in on a Zumba class. The easy to follow core steps were developed for everyone to enjoy and participants can adjust the workout intensity, making it just right for individual comfort levels. While we're having fun we seem to forget the "fitness" part of the class. First it's getting us moving, working our muscles, increasing our heart rates, and maintaining our well being. If you think about it there's no reason to not try a Zumba class today......Come dancing.....where will the rhythm take you? 

With its millions of followers, Zumba Fitness classes seek to accommodate the tastes, goals and abilities of as many exercisers as possible. Among the programs are standard Zumba and Zumba Gold; while they both rely on the core of Latin dance-inspired aerobic workouts, these programs cater to different audiences.

Zumba Fitness

Basic Zumba Fitness classes focus on vigorous aerobic dance-based exercise set to Latin and international music. Zumba Fitness acts as total-body cardiovascular exercise, and it relies on the concept of interval training, alternating between fast and slow exercise rhythms. Basic Zumba contributes to core strength and flexibility and burns about 369 calories per class, the American Council on Exercise estimates.


Zumba Gold

The Zumba Gold program retains the core Zumba design but caters more to older active exercisers than Zumba Fitness. This program offers easier-to-follow moves that focus on low joint impact, making it safer for active older adults to practice. The Gold program incorporates music such as salsa, merengue and reggaeton. Though the lower intensity of Zumba Gold may lead to fewer calories burned than Zumba Fitness, this cardio program focuses on improving or restoring range of motion, strengthening posture and bolstering the bones. Zumba Gold classes also put heightened focus on Zumba as a social group exercise.
