3 Benefits of Taking a Zumba Class

If you aren’t an exercise enthusiast, but you love dancing, then this is the fitness class for you.

Zumba has undoubtedly become one of the most popular fitness classes in recent years. Not only is it fun, but there are several health benefits that come with it including its ability to burn calories, increase endurance, boost metabolism, aid coordination, and improve confidence. Learn more of the advantages a Zumba class can offer, courtesy of the exercise experts here at Horsham Athletic Club.

Full-body Workout

This dance-based form of fitness will engage just about every muscle group in your body while also working your cardiovascular system. This smooth, comprehensive fitness regimen will make your workout more efficient, and help you create a completely toned body.

Improves Posture

Zumba classes involve movements that you won’t come across in most other workouts. By combining movements of salsa, samba, mambo, and merengue, participants will work out unique muscle groups and accustom their joints to more unusual stretches. These movements reduce tension and improve range of motion, in turn, boosting over flexibility and posture.

Reduces Anxiety

To some, going to a gym can be an intimidating and frustrating experience. It can be overwhelming to newcomers who are inexperienced and afraid to look foolish in front of more athletic gym-goers. Zumba, on the other hand, is a social, communal-based activity, which results in the release of endorphins and neurotransmitters that can decrease stress hormones and improve your mood!

Here at the Horsham Athletic Club, we offer two types of Zumba classes:


A fusion of Latin and international dance themes result in a dynamic and exciting fitness environment. The dance-like routines feature aerobic interval training that combines both fast and slow rhythms.

Zumba Step/Toning

This class combines the toning and strengthening power of step aerobics with the fun and positivity of Zumba. Increase your cardio level, burn calories, and sculpt your abs and legs!
