Zumba is a dance fitness routine that mixes elements of merengue, salsa, cumbia, reggaeton, and hip-hop, set to upbeat Latin and international music. The routines vary in intensity to challenge your muscles and increase endurance.

Most classes offer a total-body workout by incorporating squats, lunges, and boxing-like punches into the routines. Some gyms even offer variations like Zumba Gold (for seniors), Zumba toning (a sculpting class using weighted sticks), Aqua Zumba, and Zumba for kids.
