With weights, chairs or in the water: the different ways of practicing zumba
With weights, chairs or in the water: the different ways of practicing zumba

For years in the fit world a type of training reigns: Zumba. The discipline that was conceived in the 90's by the hand of Colombian Alberto "Beto" Pérez does not stop growing and in that growth the modality branched into other variants, some that had a great impact.

One of the versions that detached from the basic style is the popular Strong by Zumba, a system that incorporates exercises that do not require extra elements or large spaces, while using the body's own weight.

It consists of plyometric exercises, with lunges, squats and burpees. In this case the movements are orchestrated by the specially selected music. Being a high intensity practice, it is not recommended for the public.

On the other hand there is the Aqua Zumba, a cardiovascular exercise that is performed immersed in the water, which implies a greater effort and energy wear but with the advantage of low impact for the joints.
There are modalities in which it is necessary to include elements. Among these, Zumba Toning stands out, in which we work with weights that increase the sense of rhythm and coordination, while toning key areas such as the arms, abs and lower body.

There are also Step Zumba (convenient for developing buttocks and lower limbs) and Zumba Sentao (chairs are used and mainly concentrates the work on the abs).

Apart from that, other innovations were designed with certain age groups in mind: one is Zumbatonic, which is designed for children between 4 and 12 years old, since concepts such as group work and trust are incorporated, accompanied by coordination exercises.

In contrast, there is the Zumba Gold, a low impact version aimed at middle-aged adults and older adults. In this case, the routines are adapted to the mobility and physical resistance of the students. As benefits of each modality, the aid for weight control, for the prevention of injuries and for blood circulation stands out.

To begin to get acquainted with the activity, Jesica Cirio along with Diana Barrera and Priscila Graf share a routine to the rhythm of the song "Sin Pajama".
