With increasing desk jobs, unhealthy food habits and sedentry lifestyles, following fitness in some or the other form is becoming necessity of the day. Everyone realises this, but most fail to regularise fitness into their every day life. Resistances, be the psychological or physiological ones, eventually kill the spirit through most forms of fitness pursuits. Lack of interesting workout options or monotony in most workout formats tend to kill the long term commitment that fitness demands.
What, then makes for a ‘fun’ work out that leaves one feeling ‘fit’ and ‘fab’ at the end of it?
With an unending variety of music, Zumba can bring in ‘fun’ to one’s fitness pursuits. A non-steady, yet well planned pace through a session ensures ‘fit’ness is achieved. Time and space requirement is a big factor that deters away any form of resistance that tends to come into practice with most other workout formats.
This session would be complemented with before and after examples of those who took up Zumba as an initiating step into their pursuit of fitness. Key take-aways for audience are that being fit can come with having fun; that feeling fab is always just one dance step away.
