Aqua Zumba

About the Class
Aqua Zumba is a fitness routine that is meant to improve your body and health in general. It is great for people who have difficulty moving because of joint or back problems because of the helpful buoyant comfort the water has to provide. It is also a great cardio workout when you give it your all and keep those arms, legs, and most of your core engaged as you're working out. Aqua Zumba is a spicy Latin version of Aqua Fitness with great Latin music.

Workout Benefits
Aqua Zumba keeps the Zumba fitness workout party going in the pool, led by instructors who have specialty licenses and Aquatic Exercise Association certification. In this class, the steps are classic aqua aerobics with Latin flavor added. You perform large muscle movements by reaching your arms and lifting your legs in the water, as well as circling your hips and shoulders. The typical land-based Zumba dance steps, such as cha-cha, merengue, salsa, reggae ton and mambo, need to be more exaggerated and slower in the water, so the water tempo is half the land tempo.

Aqua Zumba is designed for anyone who can follow instructions and manage being in the water. Unlike regular water aerobics, which are linear exercises from one point to another, Aqua Zumba entails different movements for the verse, chorus, and bridge of each song. And it can be appealing to someone who likes Zumba but doesn't want to get as hot as in the land-based classes. Take an Aqua Zumba class today and give it your all and burn up to 400 calories in 1 class!
