Types of Zumba

Like mentioned in my ‘Effects of Zumba‘ blog, there are MANY different types of Zumba. In this blog I’d like to give you the option to understand the differences and maybe even choose which ones best interests you. Remember, you don’t need to be physically active or even have a rhythm to participate in Zumba. These are designed for anyone who wants to have fun and lose weight at the same time.
