Grooving to the beats of salsa, flamenco, and merengue music feels more like a dance party than a workout, which is exactly what makes Zumba so popular among our clients. Working up a sweat in the 60-minute classes burns an average of 600-1000 calories. Zumba provides a workout for the whole body. From head and shoulder to calves and ankles, this fitness method touches on nearly every muscle and joint. Even those who are just learning the dance steps will find themselves waking up the day after a Zumba class with a definitive post-workout feeling. The target areas are hips and midsection to help strengthen the core.
