 Exercise and Lose Calories With Dance Fitness Program 'Zumba'
If running on treadmills and doing squats is boring for you, then it's time to spice up your workouts with 'trending all over' dance fitness program, 'Zumba'. Created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto Perez during the 1990s, this fitness program involves dance and aerobic elements that focuses on hip and belly movements.

Jotika Anand, a level two Zumba trainer said, "Detailing about the trending form of workout that people in the country often mistake zumba as a dance form, but in reality it is a dance fitness that combines different dance rhythms like Bhangra, Merengue and Bachata and is a combination of high and low intensity workout."

Anand claims that it helps to burn out 600 calories in one session of 45 minutes. She further said, "Zumba primarily focuses on a person's core muscles because it involves a lot of belly movement."


A doctor by profession and a Zumba lover by choice, Dr. Pooja Jain said, "It is a happy workout as not only it shapes up your body, but it also relaxes your mind."
