Find out about the benefits Zumba has for your physical and mental health.

Zumba is a workout that incorporates fitness moves with dancing. This workout is known for being a fun exercise option that is great to do with friends. Zumba truly is the best of both worlds because not only is it fun and allows a time for you to be social, but it provides a great workout as well.

Some benefits of Zumba are:

  • Calorie & Fat Burning: Because Zumba includes a fast-paced environment that mixes fitness moves with dance, the average person will burn between 600 to 1,000 calories during a class.
  • Full Body Workout: Zumba provides a workout for your entire body, which helps to build endurance and strengthen your heart.
  • Confidence: Zumba helps to improve coordination and posture, as well as full body toning.
  • Social Time: One of the great things about Zumba is that anyone can join, so you can easily bring your friends along with you!
  • Positive Mindset: The upbeat songs and fast-paced dancing aids in the release of endorphins, so you can dance away your stress and leave the class feeling happier.

If you are interested in trying a Zumba class, they are offered at the UNH Hamel Rec Center! You can find the schedule here.
