Zumba is a group fitness class that uses the rhythms and movements of AfroCaribbean music, mixed in with the traditional movements of aerobics.

Its central objective is to create a high calorie consumption due to its variable intensity. In addition, the music and choreography have the primary purpose of entertaining the practitioner to make him forget the physical effort resulting in higher calorie consumption.

The choreography is created specifically to provide the participant a job of high cardiovascular intensity, and a high dose of toning legs and buttocks mainly.
