Everyone knows that getting fit and healthy can be a daunting task. It’s hard enough exercising but getting excited about it and getting into it is even harder. The weights, cardio and even yoga can sometimes be challenging on top of being boring. Zumba on the other hand feels more like a dance party. Zumba’s marketing slogan, Ditch the Workout-Join the Party best describes it. Coupled with the groovy beats of Latin dances, it’s no surprise that Zumba in Nairobi has become so popular.
Most gyms in Nairobi have Zumba classes and they are usually well attended by both men and women (mostly women). The fast and upbeat music and the well-choreographed dance routines makes for a lot of fun. The exercise is just an awesome perk to the dance party that is Zumba. Apart from it being a lot of fun, Zumba in Nairobi is very popular because of the health benefits.
Burning Calories and Fat
Just because Zumba is fun doesn’t mean it isn’t intense. With the type of dance moves and movement involved with Zumba, there is a lot of energy expenditure which in turn is maximized for fat burning. You will end up burning about 400 to 600 calories in an hour of Zumba. Looking to burn some fat? Try Zumba in Nairobi.
