Most people hate working out, it gets boring and old really fast. I mean how many of us haven’t gotten tired of doing the same thing over and over again at the gym? One of the hottest fitness videos out is called Zumba Fitness Total Body Transformation, it also happens to be one of the most energizing program available. What is Zumba you ask? Well, Zumba is a set of exercise DVDs that help you lose weight while learning a few Latin dance moves.
You can lose weight by dancing? Of course, dancing is one of the best cardio workouts. Zumba includes upbeat club music to help you keep your tempo while dancing. The upbeat music makes you want to dance which keeps you from getting bored, you can hear Latin music in the background that makes you want to move and not care if you are doing the moves correctly. If you love music then you will love the Zumba workout DVDs. If you’ve danced before or if you have danced your whole life you will enjoy the workouts.
Zumba has made exercising more fun and makes people want to workout because they don’t feel like they are actually working out, they are just having fun and enjoying the music. When you start using Zumba you will learn how to do top Latin dance moves such as the salsa and the flamenco as well as other popular dance moves.
Dancing helps speed up your heart which boosts your metabolism causing you to burn more fat. The best part about the Zumba DVDs is that you are working out in the comfort of your home, you don’t have to workout in front of other people and feel embarrassed about it.
Zumba has become one of America’s top selling and most popular workout DVD sets that are out right now! Not only is are the DVDs a wonderful workout tool, people actually lose weight with them. The reason people lose weight so quickly is because they are dancing their hearts out for around an hour each workout, which means you are getting a full hour worth of cardio just by dancing and having fun.
On average most lose around 2-4 lbs per week. The average person using Zumba will burn between 800-1000 calories each workout, the more you weigh the more calories you burn. You can easily lose a pant size each month with the Zumba DVDs. You can wear tennis shoes when working out, you can also wear jazz or dance shoes to workout in as well, whatever makes you more comfortable.
How do I know you won’t get bored with Zumba? Well considering there are enough DVDs to allow you to watch a different one almost every day of the week, I think it will be awhile before you can even think about boredom. Weight loss and smaller clothes aren’t the only benefits of using Zumba others include being able to go out dancing with your friends and actually being able to “cut a rug” as my father used to say. Also your self esteem will go through the roof with your new body and newly acquired dancing abilities. You can also pick a DVD out of the set to target certain muscle groups.
If you need to lose weight fast for that special occasion that’s coming up or you just want to lose weight for health reason then give Zumba a try. Don’t forget to check with your doctor before starting any workout program. Remember, safety first.
