Though Zumba initially launched as a series of DVDs, it has since expanded greatly. Today, Zumba is taught in gyms as well as independent Zumba studios all over the world.
- Zumba This is the most traditional Zumba class, where participants are instructed to follow basic steps belonging to Latin and international types of dance, like salsa, reggae, belly dancing, waltzing, samba, tango, merengue and the foxtrot. Zumba is a cardiovascular workout, relying on intricate, fast-paced footwork to increase its participantsâ€™ heart rate.
- Zumba Gold Zumba Gold is aimed at a mature adult population, specifically baby boomers. The workout features modified movements for older participants, making the workout safer.
- Zumba Toning Zumba Toning is intended to sculpt the arms, abs, glutes, and thighs. In keeping with the festive atmosphere typical of Zumba classes, Zumba Toning makes use of light, maraca-shaped weights—â€œZumba Toning Sticksâ€—to increase the calories burned and to add an element of strength training to an otherwise cardiovascular routine.
- Aqua Zumba Aqua Zumba is similar to water aerobics. With its inclusion of upbeat, Latin-inspired music, Aqua Zumba has been described as more of a â€œpool partyâ€ than an exercise class, combining swift movements like splashing, stretching and twisting to work out the body. Participants should be at least 14 years old.
- Zumbatomic Zumbatomic is designed to introduce tots and tweens (aged four to 12) to fitness in an entertaining way. Kid-friendly movements are set to familiar hip-hop and reggae beats, which helps them to build both coordination and discipline.
- Zumba in the Circuit The shortest of the classes, Zumba in the Circuit is a 30-minute routine that packs in intense circuit training and strength exercises, which are completed in timed intervals. Keeping in line with the Zumba ethos, participants move from station to station while dancing to Zumba-approved music.
