Plus Size Zumba

Let’s face it we’re all guilty of making plans to get fit and very few of us actually get round to doing it, i’m one of the guilty party’s. Getting started can be very difficult, I find going to the gym quite daunting and running is hard work. Swimming is a good way to keep fit, if you’re comfortable getting into a swimming costume in your local baths and you can swim of course. No matter which course of exercise we choose they all require motivation to go and if you are feeling tired or down it’s very easy to put it off. So thank goodness for Zumba !!
The idea of Zumba is that it is a fun way to get fit and even lose weight if that’s what you choose you would like to do. It is a very good cardio and fitness workout that targets the core and tones and sculpts the body. Zumba has been slowly growing since the 90’s and now is extremely popular worldwide. It now includes several different types of Zumba including original Zumba, Zumba Gold and Aqua Zumba. They have now introduced Zumba Curves, it is still based around all the other types, dance moves to Latin music but is a 30 min routine designed to strengthen muscles and blast fat. It also includes a circuit with resistance machines and a nutritional programme.
More importantly Zumba is all about social interaction and fun whilst getting fit and healthy at the same time. If you have been put off before because of gym stereotypes then the zumba curves class may be the perfect place to make you feel comfortable while shaking your booty. Curvety have just launched a new line of plus size fitness clothing so why not look the part too. We particularly like this sports top, Kala with clever sleeves that although it is a vest top for when you get hot dancing to all that Latin music they have a floaty top sleeve to cover up the top of the arm which none of us ladies like.
Have you tried Zumba ? Let us know what you think of it.
