Zumba is a fun workout that incorporates a set of exercises performed in sync with background music. It is a combination of aerobics and salsa and requires you to continuously move to the music beat. It is highly beneficial in losing weight and improving your cardiovascular system. In one Zumba session, you can easily burn between 600 to 1000 calories. The fast paced music in a Zumba workout session helps build your endurance after a few sessions.
