ZUMBA® is the original fitness dance class. With a variety of dance styles and music, there is something for everyone and every fitness level.
If you love to dance, this class is for you. You will have fun while you burn calories and get fit.
Come and join the ZUMBA® party with us at Home Fitness!
ZUMBA® is a one hour aerobic dance fitness class based on the principle of interval training-alternating high and low intensity exercises which works for both beginners and advanced participants. In ZUMBA®, changes in intensity are driven by the different rhythms of the music and the steps-making it easy to follow and the routines easy to learn with time.
ZUMBA® will get your heart pumping and increase your endurance-you’ll have more energy and burn calories!
Classes will start with one or two warm-up songs before switching to a calorie-burning, sweat-inducing pace. The tempo of the music will change several times throughout the class with intervals of faster and slower rhythms. Dance moves will include a lot of forward-and-back and lateral side-to-side movements, squats and lunges, changes in direction, arm toning moves, and hip shaking. Our qualified ZUMBA® instructor ends the class with the cool down.
ZUMBA® classes may also focus more on toning and strengthening the muscles of the body, and incorporate the use of light hand weights.
Each ZUMBA® class is one-hour long.
ZUMBA® classes are designed for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. If it is your first time attending ZUMBA® class and/or are returning to exercise after a break, take it easy in your first class and follow along as best you can.
ZUMBA® class is all about having fun while you workout - so do not worry and just enjoy it!
Arrive 5-10 minutes before the class if you are a regular client of ours.
Yes. However we request that you listen to your body and do not over-exert yourself. Sometimes less is more - if you work to your 100% intensity in one class, it is more efficient and effective than working 50% in two classes.
Everyone is different, so do not compare yourself to anyone else but yourself. With any exercise regime, we recommend giving yourself one month to see change in your body. How will you know if there is change? We have our state-of-the-art InBody body composition machine which explains in detail what is going on in your body - your muscle mass and body fat, if you are hydrated enough, which type of exercise you need to be doing in order to achieve your goals, and more. Our InBody machine is free for all of our clients to use anytime and we recommend taking your test at the start of your new exercise regime then again after one month. We compare these results to see the changes that you have made and our Personal Trainers will explain to you your results in detail, answer any questions you have, and prescribe for your the best course of action to continue thereafter. Whenever you would like to complete your InBody test, ask our friendly reception team and they will help you.
If weight loss is your main goal, when you start working out your body generally starts to build lean muscle. After some time you may have started to lose body fat and feel that your body is decreasing in size and your clothes have become more loose but your weight on the scale may not have decreased. This is the point where it can become frustrating, however, this is a good sign. This means that you are building lean muscle (which is great, because muscle burns fat) and decreasing body fat. Muscle weighs nearly 4 times heavier than fat, so if you are decreasing in size and shape but your weight is not, do not worry! You are decreasing your body fat and increasing your lean muscle mass, which is exactly what we want to see happening. If you want to be sure of this you can retest your InBody machine results anytime at the Club.
Because everyone is different, some will see results in a short time while for others it takes longer. The key to a successful exercise regime is being consistent with your workouts and keeping your eating habits healthy and clean. Do your best, train hard, eat healthy and stay with it - you will see the results.
Remember that we are here to help you achieve your health and fitness goals - this is our priority. Ask us anytime any questions you have, or let us know if you need help anytime. We are always here for you.
