If you are the sort that cannot imagine working the treadmill assiduously or cannot abide the idea of pumping iron, you do have your fitness options curtailed a lot, but not completely it must be said.
You still have a few fun options that will help to achieve some fitness goals and in a fun way at that:
When you think of it, a dance class is not a fitness regime at all, and yet it gives you many of the benefits that come from it. This is a kind of exercise in disguise and class is more like being at a party than being at a workout class!
Zumba is designed to offer a workout, whatever be your level of fitness and you don’t have to be a So You Think you can Dance aspirant to start on a Zumba regimen.
Since there are many modifications and variations to the general theme, anyone, with any level of fitness can participate.
What Zumba does is, it combines a number of different Latin based dances (which by themselves can be quite strenuous) and a full body workout.
The best thing is, you aren’t thinking of it as a workout but the dance elements are actually giving you an aerobic workout without you knowing it.
