How Zumba turns dance party fun into a seriously good workout

Here’s a secret we bet you haven’t heard – workouts don’t have to be a chore. In fact, they don’t need to feel like a workout at all. Just one of the many reasons we love Zumba is that whole dance-party-with-your-friends vibe this awesome workout has. When you join in a Zumba class you can check fitness, fun, getting healthy, laughing, cutting loose and destressing all off your list, doing a whole lot of good for your body without realizing you’re getting in a seriously good workout.

We love Zumba here at FIT Tribe, so we want everyone to get to know it as well. Think of Zumba like a fun, social dance party with exercise mixed in. The music is fast, upbeat and contagious, with moves based on salsa and Latin dances. The class is perfect for all levels, choreography is less structured than other types of workout classes, and it all somehow manages to feel more like a guilty pleasure than something good for your health.

If you need any more reasons to try out a Zumba class, here are more benefits to shaking your booty and moving to the beat:

  • Calorie and fat burning: Zumba burns between 500 to 7000 calories per class
  • Improved coordination: This method of Latin dance helps boost coordination
  • Full body workout: From head to toe, Zumba touches on nearly every muscle and joint
  • Aerobic benefits: The face pace and quick tempo elevates heart rates and builds endurance
  • Addictive (in a good way!): Workouts that are fun and exciting at the same time are hard to find. But Zumba has it all.
  • Boost confidence: Zumba improves posture, coordination, body image, mood and confidence – making you feel great!

Here at FIT Tribe, we don’t just Zumba, we Zumba Party! We have some of the most incredible instructors in the Central Valley who are ready to be the best part of your day. We invite you to check out a Zumba class and see how it feels for you. Once you get a taste, we know you’ll definitely want to come back for more, so as of June 1st we’re offering a new membership option called the “Party Package” where for $30 per month you can attend unlimited Zumba classes at the Academy. Also, drop in rate for Zumba classes will have a discounted rate of only $5 (which is cheaper than cover charges). We have a passion for spreading joy and we can’t wait for you to experience the thrill that is Zumba for yourself.
