Aqua Zumba is a new addition to the Zumba fitness phenomenon, and it’s making waves with Zumba’s 14 million fans in over 150 countries. Pulsating international beats along with Latin-inspired dance moves combine with aqua fitness to create a full body, low-impact workout. Classes are 45 minutes long and start with a warm-up intended to get the body ready for exercise. Then you move into a series of easy to follow dance moves choreographed specifically to each song. You’ll walk forward and back in the pool, step side to side, turn, kick and even hold a few moves for balance work. There are jumps, arm sequences and high knees all designed to get the heart rate going. You work all your muscles all the time, using the water’s resistance to build muscle.
