Bring the Party to the Pool – Zumba Party That Is

Have you wanted to be involved in the Zumba® Fitness-Party, but felt hesitant because of limitations or concerns you had about the activity-level required? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could participate in this fun, exuberant, national fitness trend without those concerns? Fortunately for you and hundreds of thousands of others with similar concerns, Zumba has developed a program just for you. Known as the Zumba “pool party,” Aqua  Zumba® is just as exciting, fun, and invigorating as any traditional Zumba routine.

Since Zumba was first discovered in the mid-1990’s by Alberto “Beto” Perez, the company has developed program routines for varying fitness levels, experience, and age. Aqua Zumba® is one of these programs. It retains the basic fundamentals that have made Zumba so popular while creating a safer, less body-straining environment from which to participate.

By merging the party-like atmosphere created from using Latin dance music and moves with traditional aqua fitness programs, participants are known to shout, laugh, hoot and holler at one another, while at the same time getting an exceptional cardio-conditioning, body-toning workout.

Get Your Money’s Worth

As with most all good things, the more popular something becomes the more copy cats there are. To get the most out of Aqua Zumba®, particularly if you are paying for the classes, make sure instructors are properly trained and certified. Zumba® LLC requires every instructor of any of its programs to be trained and licensed.

Anyone interested in becoming an instructor must first attend a Zumba Instructor Training course, and then keep their license current through a variety of training courses offered by the Zumba academy. In addition, instructors are required to be a member of the Zumba Instructor Network (ZIN), and are strongly encouraged to obtain certification from the Aquatic Exercise Association (AEA).

To get the maximum benefit from this exciting program, make sure your instructor is properly trained in the art of integrating the Zumba philosophy into traditional aqua fitness workouts.
