The Zumba Specialties are:
Zumba® Fitness – When participants see a Zumba class in action, they can’t wait to give it a try. Zumba classes feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they’re getting fit and their energy levels are soaring!
There’s no other fitness class like a Zumba Fitness-Party. It’s easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.
Zumba® Kids is a high-energy fitness-party, designed exclusively for kids (ages 4-11). Each class is packed with specially choreographed, kid friendly routines and all the music kids love, like hip-hop, reggaeton, cumbia and more.
Zumba® Kids classes are usually split into two main groups. Zumba® kids Jr. classes are for kids aged 4- 6 years old while Zumba® kids is for kids 7- 11 years old.
The goal is to develop a healthy lifestyle and to incorporate fitness as a natural part of children’s lives, not just as a class they attend once a week. While exercise is a very important part of childhood development, Zumba® Kids also considers other aspects (see below).
Classes are supportive, non-competitive and there are no costumes or make-up required!
It’s a total blast!
Benefits of ZUMBA® Kids:
Zumba Gold is a special class designed for the active adult population or the true beginner (deconditioned) participant. A Zumba Gold class, is very conscious of people’s possible physical limitations.
The steps are generally simpler than in a normal Zumba class, more repetitions, less fancy crossings of the legs and hips. It potentially caters for people who may be out of shape, or maybe had a hip replacement, past injuries, delicate joints and knees, overweight or just want an easier start.
Zumba Gold is all about safety.
However, participating is a Zumba Gold class, one still moves, sweats and SMILES. It’s still lots of fun and a good work out. It’s really good for beginners and for all those concerned with “not being able to get the steps” Instructors trained in Zumba Gold are taught about the anatomical, physiological, and psychological needs specific to these populations. The course even includes a Zumba chair workout.
While Zumba Basic is designed to teach the general exercising population, Zumba Gold is specifically designed to teach the active older adult.
Known as “the pool party,” this therapeutic workout combines contagious world rhythms, but adapts them to use the water’s resistance for a safe and extremely effective aquatic workout.
Splashing, stretching, twisting, even shouting, laughing, hooting and hollering are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class. Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, the Aqua Zumba class blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of all, exhilarating beyond belief.
Recently launched, The Zumba Sentao™ workout takes the thrill of the fitness-party and partners it with explosive, chair-based choreography to strengthen, balance and stabilize your core, and step up your cardio workout in a whole new way.
