Benefits of Zumba:
Improved Cardiovascular Health
One of the best fitness benefits associated with Zumba dancing is an improvement in your cardiovascular health. Your cardiovascular system is composed of your heart, as well as the veins and arteries that deliver blood to and from the heart. For best results, try to get at least 30 minutes five days a week.
Another great fitness benefit associated with Zumba dancing is weight loss. This is one of the most common reasons that people choose to join group exercise classes such as Zumba. Therefore, if you want to lose one pound of weight per week, you must cut 500 calories from your diet per day. For the average person, engaging in Zumba dance for one hour will burn approximately 400 calories.
Zumba dancing is also a great way to improve your coordination. Having a good sense of coordination is very important, especially as you age. Falls among the elderly are one of the leading causes of death. Therefore, if you can improve (and maintain) your coordination as you age, you will be less likely to fall victim to these types of accidents.
Finally, research has found that all types of exercise produce endorphins, which are a type of “feel-good” hormone that are released into the blood stream after you finish exercising.
