    What is ZUMBA Toning?

    While a regular Zumba class is exciting and fun a Toning Class adds another dimension to the workout party. This class takes the original dance/fitness class to an entirely different level.
    ZUMBA® TONING is a breakthrough muscle shaping system with the use of lightweight toning sticks that you use like a set of maracas. There are two types of toning sticks, one type weigh approximately 1 1/2 pounds, for beginner participates and the other one weigh approximately 2 1/2 pounds, for more advance participates.  These toning sticks are filled with sand. In a very short period of time, with dieting, this workout will help you build coordination, muscular strength and reshape your body. You'll not only lose pounds and inches but you will have curves in all the right places, as a result of this program.
     
    This exciting breakthrough workout is designed to offer you a safe and yet very effective total body sculpting workout.If you haven't tried this type of dance workout yet then you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

    Zumba combines high energy and motivating music with unique moves and combinations that allow the Zumba participants to dance away their worries.  It is based on the principle that a workout should be "FUN AND EASY TO DO" in order for Zumba participants to stick to the Zumba fitness program to achieve long-term health benefits.  Zumba is not only great for the body but is also great for the mind.  It is a "feel-happy" workout.

    Zumba is a fusion of Latin and International music - dance themes creating a dynamic, exciting, effective fitness system! The routines feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body.  It is a mixture of body sculpting movement with easy to follow dance steps.

    Zumba is aligned with AFAA (Aerobic & Fitness Association of Ameria), ACE (American Council of Exercise), IDEA (the world's largest assoication for fitness professionals), SCW Fitness Education, Can-Fit-Pro (International Trade Show & Conference in Canada) an many top national fitness facility chains and organization.

    Frequently asked Questions about ZUMBA

    What do I wear to ZUMBA?     You can wear sweat pants, shorts, tank tops, t-shirts, anything comfortable and cool.  As for shoes, wear athletic shoes that give you support.  I recommend cross-trainers or Dance Sneakers.  Also, bring a bottle of water and a face towel.

    What can I expect when I come to ZUMBA?    The ZUMBA Instructor will lead the class in easy, simple movements that are combinations of dance and fitness.  The students just follow along; usually just visual cues are given so that the class can listen to the music and immerse into the feel of the music.  The music is fun and invigorating and mostly Latin; the dancing is varied: salsa, meringue, cha-cha, bachata, tango, cumbia, reggaeton, samba, calypso, and a lot of hip and body shaking! Fitness moves such as lunges, biceps curls, and other arm-toning isolations and crunches (while standing) are incorporated.  The class structure starts with a warm-up and proceeds to intervals of faster and slower tempos throughout the hour, ending with a cool-down and stretch.

    What if I'm not coordinated and I can't dance?    Don't worry about the steps!!! ZUMBA is all about having FUN while getting fit.  There are NO MISTAKES in ZUMBA.  As long as you are breathing, as long as you are moving, as long as you are having fun, you are doing ZUMBA correctly!  ZUMBA uses a lot of repetition of steps from class to class.  ZUMBA is an excerise party!  There is no right or wrong way to ZUMBA.  Even if you can't do a step just move to however the music makes you feel!

    What if I'm out of shape and I can't keep up?    You may work at your own pace and can modify your own intensity of exercise.  Most of the moves are low impact and the ones that aren't can be done that way.  You may sit out songs to rest.  That's perfectly fine!  There is no competition going on here!  As you continue you will see your stamina build up and you will be able to do more and more.

    What kinds of people take ZUMBA class?  People of all fitness abilities, ages, sizes, and nationalitites take ZUMBA.

    How will ZUMBA benefit me?  So many ways! ZUMBA is a total package; mind, body, and spirit!  Physically, you will burn 500-800 calories in one-hour, build cardio strength, and tone muscles.  ZUMBA fitness especially targets the core, building strong abdominal muscles.  Mentally, you will relieve stress, stimulate your brain by learning coordination and new steps, and feel more confident moving your body. Spiritually, you will feel joy, forget your worries, gain self-confidence, and self-esteem.  Not to mention you will make new friends and you will learn how to dance!
