1. What is Zumba? How different is it from regular aerobics, yoga, pilates and other fitness forms?
|Sucheta Pal, Zumba Education Specialist|
Zumba has several specialties to cater to every age group and various fitness goals. We have Zumbatomic to encourage healthy activity in kids to Zumba Gold to improve mobility among the active older adults, to Aqua Zumba, which is a low-impact workout and ideal for your body due to the cushioning of water and suitable for people with joint pain, arthritis or back issues to Zumba Sentao, Toning and Core for the hardcore fitness enthusiasts who want to take fitness to a completely different level.
3. What were you doing for a living before becoming a Zumba Education Specialist (ZES)?
I am going to complete three years of being a Zumba Instructor in August, 2013. And I have been a ZES for a year now.
A Zumba Education Specialist (ZES) educates and is the only person appointed by the Zumba Home Office (US) who can license instructors to become Zumba Instructors. They train the trainers.
A person can burn between 500-800 calories or even more depending on the intensity of the class.
