4 Benefits of Water Zumba

Aqua Zumba.
Have you ever heard of it? I’m sure you’ve heard of the classic form of Zumba. Well, Aqua Zumba is just what you’d expect by the name. It’s zumba performed underwater.
Which is why it’s great to have an Underwater Audio Waterproof iPod shuffle for this activity. Here are some of the benefits of Aqua Zumba classes:

Lower Impact

Taking care of our bodies should always be a top priority. Speaking as someone who has a herniated disk in his back from over exertion, I can vouch for the importance of protecting the skeletal system during a work out. This type of exercise is one of the more safe options. “There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba®class so you can really let loose.”

Resistance

More resistance equals a greater work out. When looking to increase intensity, added resistance is a great way to go.
“Water creates natural resistance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles.”

Burn More Calories

Why do we work out if not to burn calories? I don’t know about you but I’m not sure I would work out if I were immune to getting fat. Keeping my body fit and strong is the main reason I go to the gym. As it turns out, Aqua Zumba is a huge contender when it comes to calorie burning.
“If done right, you can easily burn upwards of 600 calories in a single hour. Not bad, right?”

Trip-Free

I’m kind of a klutzy person. The good news is that it’s pretty hard to trip in the water. Unlike the dance room… it’s really easy to trip in there when learning a new dance move.

Underwater Audio

I highly recommend grabbing your Underwater Audio Waterproof iPod Shuffle, heading to the pool, and trying out some Aqua Zumba. An organized class is always preferable.
But when all else fails, just turn up the tunes and start dancing in the water. You’ll burn calories like crazy.
