In my previous blog about Zumba, I gave a heads up on what Zumba is, how it works, and the pros and cons of participating in the activity. I believe y’all have a basic understanding of the facts I laid out. But be it any activity, there’s always one question that lingers in our mind and that is ‘Why’ – Why should we do what we do? The purpose of today’s article is to clarify “Why is Zumba necessary,” which is exactly why inquiry is crucial to better understanding things.
Here’s a compiled list of 7 reasons why everyone should do Zumba.
1. Instant mood lifter
It’s a given that music uplifts your mood. So when we throw in a series of dance moves following the beats, isn’t it like a double booster? Because what’s better than dancing your worries away? Hence, Zumba is an instant mood lifter!
2. Boosts energy levels
Zumba is a dance-workout session. Hence, when your body moves to the beats, the circulation of blood in your muscles is improved, thus giving a leg up to your energy levels.
3. Improves coordination
You might be a Monica in a tap-dance class (i.e., not-so-great coordination), but hey, Zumba helps in improving your overall coordination, thus leading to smooth and efficient body movements.
4. Burns calories
Did you know that the energy required by your body to perform high-intensity dance moves are extracted from your fat reserve? So involuntarily, the calories are gonna go down the drain!
5. Loosens your body
If you feel tight and have a stiff body, Zumba has the cure to loosen your muscles. With every session, you’ll feel the stiffness taking its leave, thereby improving your body’s flexibility.
6. Cuz it’s fun!
C’mon guys, by this time you should know that Zumba is no regular exercise program. I mean, why wouldn’t you just go and groove to the music just because it’s fun. And the best part is that you also tend to tone your body and improve bodily functions in the process.
7. Gang gang!
One social benefit of Zumba is that you get to meet new people who might even become your friends in the long run. (social bee buzzing). So why not dance and make friends? It doesn’t sound like a grind to me!
If you are looking for some sort of physical activity without taking a toll on your body, Zumba is your best bet. An added advantage is that it also improves the cardiovascular system in the body. When a fun workout has too many benefits to count, what’s stopping you from busting a move and shaking it up!?
