Zumba Gold® is a low impact version of Zumba Fitness®; the Latin-inspired dance-fitness programme. The format takes the Zumba® formula and modifies the moves so that they are safe and suitable for active adults of any age. The pace of the routines is also designed to make sure that participants can join in with confidence. You can expect the classes to be full of energy and excitement and for the atmosphere to be friendly and fun.
Zumba Gold® is a cardiovascular exercise programme. This means you will gradually raise your heart rate and then dance at a pace that allows you to experience that feel good factor we get when we get moving.
Although Zumba Gold® was originally conceived by Zumba LLC as a programme for “the mature, active participant” it is also very suitable for adults who have never done much exercise or who are returning to exercise after a break. You might also simply want to do a class that is easier and more accessible than a regular Zumba Fitness® class.
The format works for the same reasons that the full on Zumba Fitness® classes do. This includes the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue and cumbia, along with a range of classic dance tracks, old and new. With the exhilarating, easy-to- follow dance routines, and the invigorating party-like atmosphere, before you know it you will have done a brilliant workout and feel great.
