Known as the Zumba "pool party," Aqua Zumba gives new meaning to the idea
of an invigorating workout. Splashing, stretching, twisting - even shouting,
laughing, hooting, and hollering - are often heard during an Aqua Zumba class.
Integrating the Zumba formula and philosophy with traditional aqua fitness
disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging,
water-based workout that’s cardio-conditioning, body-toning, and most of
all, exhilarating beyond belief.
Aqua Zumba uses mostly Latin music rhythms such as Merengue, Cumbia, Salsa,
and Reggaeton, but can also use a variety of upbeat tempos as found in
international music. Because of the resistance of the water, Zumba movements will be slower and adjusted to the water environment; however, the workout can be just as intense.
Water shoes are needed for this class.
