11 Reasons You Should Join Zumba Class

With its catchphrase being "Ditch the workout, join the party," Zumba class is clearly not an ordinary type of workout. Over the past few years, it has been increasing in popularity due to its unique approach to fitness. Whether you are in great shape, religiously go to the gym or you are trying to find the perfect class to segue yourself back into a healthy lifestyle, Zumba is the perfect class to add to your routine. Versatile and just plain fun, there are so many reasons to join the Zumba party.

1. Zumba Is For Everyone

While Zumba is a dance-based workout, you by no means need any prior skill to joining the class. Zumba classes are usual composed of diverse age groups and fitness levels. Kids, teenagers, adults, and even some senior citizens attend the same classes. An instructor will customize the routines and welcome everyone to adapt it to their own level of difficulty.

2. You Will Dance Yourself Into Shape

The dance routines of Zumba will get your blood pumping and your body moving. The classes do wonders for your cardiovascular system. Attending classes frequently and regularly often lead to weight lose and overall improvement of physical health.

3. Great Way To Tone Your Body

Zumba exercises all parts of the body and fuses various dance styles and workout methods that engage all of your muscles. The various routines will have different focuses such as arms, abs, and legs. During many songs you will also find yourself doing squats, vertical crunches, lunges and so on. Eventually, you will emerge from the Zumba classes with an evenly toned body.

4. You Do Not Realize You Are Working Out

One of the best parts about Zumba is the elements of fun that are tied into every class. In contrast to traditional workout styles, you are not doing repetitive sets or monotonous routines. Each song has new moves and a different style. The instructor might even make you sing, clap, or "WOOO" along. The hour ends up flying by, because you feel more like you're having a dance party with friends than working out.

5. The Price Is Right

Zumba classes generally are very affordable and have the option of paying per class or monthly. Most college campuses and many community centers offer free classes as well.

6. It's The Perfect Class For Friends

Zumba is great to attend with friends, because you can laugh, talk, and be silly with each other as you dance through each routine.

7. It's A Great Place To Make Friends

A lot of classes are full of regulars, so you will begin getting to know the people you see once or twice each week, and you are likely to make a connection with a few of them.

8. The Atmosphere Is Great

There is a strong sense of no judgment, community, and empowerment in every Zumba studio. Everyone is there to have a great time with each other.

9. Zumba Boosts Your Confidence

As with any exercise, your body will produce endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. Zumba takes it a step further and makes you feel sexy. You get to work out while embracing your sassy, fabulous self and a little bit of (okay, a lot of) hip-shaking is always fun.

10. It's A Great Stress Reliever

After a long, stressful day the Zumba Studio can be a sanctuary where you can let loose while still getting fit.

11. Zumba Is Addicting

Chances are if you know someone who has taken a Zumba class, they fell in love with it. Once you start, you won't want to stop. There is a reason it has become so popular and has such a positive reputation. So what are you waiting for? Go join the party and find out for yourself!
