Love Zumba Gold! You Will Too!
Love the idea of Zumba but want something a little easier to start?
Then Zumba Gold is for you! It’s easy, it’s fun and get’s top marks as an anti aging exercise!
The creators of the original Zumba fitness workout want to make this kind of dance exercise with party atmosphere available to everyone.
Zumba Gold is a slightly pared down version to suit older men and women, beginners and those who are not fit at all.
If you can’t stand for long periods or use a wheelchair you can take part too. Instructors are trained to modify moves so everyone can enjoy the party!
In this 3 minute video you can see what I mean.
Zumba Gold uses the same Latin music and dance routines like tango, salsa, cha-cha, cumbia, belly dance, rumba and merengue. Unlike original Zumba Dance the moves are split into segments to make them easier to copy. While the flavor of the dances stays the same the tempo is reduced so everyone can take part and have fun.
In this 3 minute video another instructor chooses choreography to suit her class members. Part of the magic of this Zumba workout is the flexibility to modify up or down to suit everyone.
Many older women choose Zumba Gold classes to help them reduce their weight and begin to get fit but the reward of regular exercise is so much more! Zumba schools balance and coordination, flexibilty and posture. The core muscles especially abs are honed and arms and legs including inner thighs and wobbly arms benefit enormously too. Still the main reward for regular exercise is the positive effect on our health, helping us to stave off the disease and limitations associated with getting older.
Having fun, moving, laughing and getting to know new people is a major plus and a good reason to begin right away! You don’t need any previous dance experience! Any level of fitness or lack thereof is Ok! All you need is a pair of sports or dance shoes that support your ankles and knees when the routine involves those lovely latin twists and turns!
Let the music inspire you and dance away those pounds, aches and pains or whatever else is holding you back!
