What are the Benefits of ZUMBA Gold?

Who should take Zumba Gold classes? Everyone from the ages of 10-100 should, as long as they are interested in learning the dance steps of the Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Tango, Belly Dance, Cha Cha and Rock & Roll. The importance of staying active throughout our lives is not in question. The question is, how will we stay active?

Changes Take Place As we age, change takes place in our bodies. Changes can occur in blood pressure, blood sugar, bone density, muscle mass, body fat and strength. What we do to offset the changes is up to us. Doctors and nutritionists advise us to stay active, eat healthy, and think positively. An easy way to follow their advice is by taking classes, which help us in all three areas.

Not only is aerobic dance great for our bodies, it's great for our minds. While dancing to the exciting beats of Latin music, the brain's pharmacy begins to release its natural 'fixes', serotonin and dopamine to make us feel good. In other words, dancing is a natural high! In our modern day lives fitness should register high on our daily to-do list to combat stress and inactivity.

Zumba Gold Program The Zumba Gold program improves balance, flexibility and cardiovascular strength with its unique program. Feeling the music is the first and most important step to learning Zumba. Feeling the music happens when one suddenly forgets she's dancing in a class and the music is the reason to move with joy.
