Why is Zumba better than Aquabike?
Zumba is a dance oriented aerobics class utilizing Latin dance moves. It is a medium to high impact aerobics cardio class and can be a lot of fun thanks to the Latin music. One of the newer aerobics classes offered that started in the early 2000’s as another way to dance your way into shape. With its high cardio most people burn anywhere from 300 to 900 calories per class. Depending on their fitness level and participation.
This type of high impact Cardio exercise is usually recommended for the younger crowd. People who have a strong cardiovascular system. Not recommended for people over 40 and with joint issues. As there are a lot of hip swaying and movements focused on and around the knees, legs, and ankles. With it’s amazing Latin Based moves like Cha Cha, Merengue, Salsa, and Reggaeton you can easily increase your heartrate for a dance filled high cardio workout.
