Did you know?
Zumba was founded in 1998 by Pérez in Cali, Colombia. Pérez, an aerobics instructor, forgot to bring his regular music to his aerobics class. He happened to have cassette tapes of Latin dance music—salsa and merengue—and danced to them instead, which Pérez later taught as “Rumbacize”.
The Beto Shuffle is a famous Zumba move that is named and practiced in homage to the creator of Zumba. The shuffle includes single-single, double-double movement sequences, and most Zumba classes include this very move.
The word “Zumba” was inspired by the word “Zumbar”, which means to buzz. It’s a fun word that seems to suit the exercise.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Zumba is a dance-based type fitness class that originated in Columbia. It takes rhythms from all over the world including (but not limited to): salsa, merengue, cumbia, reggaeton, belly dance, Arabian, African, Bollywood, hip hop, samba, axe, swing, cha-cha, flamenco, etc.
For each rhythm, a number of the most common steps for that type of dance are simplified down into a form that is quick to learn, and easy to follow, to provide you with an interval workout that torches tonnes of calories.
Not at all! The neat thing about Zumba is you only work as hard as you want to. Two people in the same class could do the same steps and one may not even break a sweat, while the other is drenched. You only get out of it what you put into it. Can’t handle high impact? No problem, your instructor should always demonstrate a low impact option.
The short answer – yes. The long answer – as with any weight loss plan you will need to pair exercise with healthy eating in over to achieve long term weight loss. You only get out of it what you put into it.
This, of course, depends on your height, weight, age, and workout intensity level. Most people burn somewhere in the ballpark of 400-900 calories/class.
If you haven’t been doing any regular exercise prior to starting Zumba, it is best to practice it no more than 1x/week for the first month or two. After that you should be able to safely move up to 2x/week and then add a 3x if you want to once you have built up some cardiovascular strength and endurance.
If you already exercise regularly you can certainly start out with 2 classes/week – just make sure you take your other activities into consideration so that you are not over-training.
