PT Friday: Have You Ever Done Zumba

Physical training can get boring and routine at times, so it is always good to mix up your workouts. Our society goes through workout phases: bodybuilding, aerobics, spinning, yoga, and more recently Zumba.

Here is a Wikipedia definition of Zumba: 

Zumba is a dance fitness program created by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez during the 1990s. Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements. The choreography incorporates  hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, and mambo. Squats and lunges are also included. Approximately 15 million people take weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 185 countries.

Today, we will warmed up by stretching and then we will Zumba for about 18 minutes. We will break this up into 6 minute sessions with a resting break in between. Also on the lunges and squats focus on proper safe techniques for example DO NOT put your body weight forward of your bent knee during a lunge and only go into a sitting position when squatting.
