Zumba Gold takes the popular Latin-dance inspired workout of Zumba and makes it accessible for anyone needing low-impact exercise due to age, size or other health issues and is perfect for seniors, beginners and women during pregnancy.
Movements are designed to increase flexibility, coordination, balance, range of motion and strength. Zumba Gold builds cardiovascular health by challenging the heart and working the muscles of the hips, legs and arms with dance moves that includes a medley of dance styles, such as merengue, cha-cha, cumbia, belly dance, rumba, tango and salsa. Zumba Gold breaks these dances down to address the anatomical and biomechanical needs of active older adults, unconditioned beginner, or pregnant mother.
