Activity For All Ages
Zumba was created when Colombian celebrity fitness trainer “Beto” Perez forgot his aerobics music one day and grabbed the Latin salsa and merengue music he had in his backpack. He improvised the entire class on the spot — and Zumba was born. Today, Zumba is taught in over 75 countries at more than 50,000 locations. The wildly popular fitness program features Latin dances including the salsa, cha-cha-cha,mambo, rock ’n’ roll and merengue.
The Zumba Gold Difference
Zumba Gold allows anyone of any age or fitness level to enjoy the Latin styles of music and dance that have become so popular in the basic Zumba program. Zumba Gold is perfect for the older active adult, individuals who have not been exercising, or anyone with physical limitations. Zumba Gold is a lower intensity class. The class lasts about 30 to 45 minutes and uses a longer warm-up and cool down. Zumba Gold instructors are also specially trained to watch if students are experiencing problems or discomfort of any kind. In addition, Zumba Gold workouts can be done in a chair for those who are wheelchair-bound or sedentary.
