We all know that regular exercise is needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, working out just isn’t that much fun.
Enter Aqua Zumba, an hour-long underwater dance workout that provides results with an enjoyable, upbeat and expressive style.
For those not familiar, traditional Zumba is an upbeat group aerobics exercise where participants dance to Latin, hip-hop and pop music until they feel the burn. The intensity level is variable for folks with any fitness status, guaranteeing a fun and effective workout that anyone can do.
Aqua Zumba simply moves this workout to the shallow end of the pool. This relocation presents several benefits, including extra resistance from the water, less stress on the joints and less overheating and sweating. And you don’t even have to be a swimmer; you’ll never go more than chest-deep.
Aqua Zumba is also more heart-healthy as the average person’s heart rate decreases 13 percent when submerged chest-deep in water. The water resistance causes extra calorie burn while simultaneously helping your joints and heart. Who says you can’t have it all?
If you’re looking for a new, fun way to stay in shape, give Aqua Zumba a try. Dance, whoop and holler your way to the best shape of your life, and make new friends while you’re at it!
