Zumba is the name of a dance fitness program created in Colombia during the 1990s. Music is the key ingredient to Zumba classes. The score, created with specific beats and tempo changes, transitions the workout from one toning, strengthening or cardio move to another, and targets every major muscle group in the body.
Zumba is a great alternative to traditional fitness programs. It motivates you to get up and get moving with its signature Latin music beat. Implementing Latin rhythms can make working out more fun.
Zumba makes getting to your target heart rate much easier than standard workout routines. It does this by using songs that play around 145 beats per minute. This fast pace makes it feel natural to move around quickly. This will set you on the path to true aerobic exercise. If you are trying to build endurance, this is the best thing you can do for yourself. This level of training can also help to burn calories that are derived from fat.
Because Zumba's music plays at a fast pace, moving to the beat of the music can start to build up your endurance after only a few workouts. It builds up your anaerobic endurance rather quickly. This type of training is as intense as one should go without explicit direction from a physician. Overall, it's most useful for helping to maintain a good cardiovascular respiratory system. It increases how much oxygen you can breathe during a high-intensity event. Many athletes train at this level for just this reason.
