Take your mind to a fun place all while doing your body a world of good with this 30 minute senior Zumba workout! Whether you’re looking for a little stress relief, a way to lose or maintain your weight, increase your cardiovascular system or just keep your muscles strong, Zumba is a great option.
So popular because it’s like a dance party rather than an exercise class, Zumba is set to Latin rhythms that just make you want to move. Meringue, salsa, bachata, cha cha… give them all a try in this workout.
How To Learn Zumba
If you’ve ever peeked through the window at your gym and seen a Zumba class in progress, you may have been excited but at the same time hesitant to try it for yourself. With its fast moving dance steps and pumping music, Zumba can admittedly be a bit intimidating at first!
The great thing about Zumba, though, is that it is appropriate for all fitness levels. The motto of the program is “ditch the workout, join the party,” and Zumba dancers live this by being welcoming and supportive of those who are learning the moves.
There’s no judgement. Go at your own pace and pick up a little more of the routine each time. If you get lost, who cares? Just keep moving, have fun and try to jump back in when you’re ready.
Trying Zumba videos like this one at home first is a great way to get acclimated to the moves before going to a class or in-between classes to learn new steps.
The only major recommendation I have is to do this video on a solid floor like tile, vinyl or hardwood rather than carpet, which can trip you up. You can even do it in your garage or driveway if it’s not too hot.
What Areas of the Body Does Zumba Target?
Zumba can truly provide a full body workout. Most classes follow an interval format, alternating between periods of high and low intensity. Here are some of the key areas of the body a Zumba workout targets:

Thank you thank you thank you. The cues you give before you change steps are wonderful and help me to learn the routine faster. Example of cues, “awe,” and pointing to the left or right before you go that direction, “now”, “then to the ….”
All of these and more are what make your videos my favorite on the internet!
Thank you so much for those kind words! As I said on the video, I am so glad you are making the choice to not just sit around, but to get up and be active. That is one of the many things we can do to keep our immune system revved up so we can remain strong and healthy. Keep it up! And stay well.
Thank you so much Cindy for doing this.
And thank you for watching! 🙂
Do you have a video for Line dancing? I need something a little slow to get the hang of it. I do really like your videos but I want to do more than look. Thanks, Diane
Hi Diane, we do not have a line dancing video yet, but thank you for the suggestion. Always looking for new ideas for future videos! In the meantime, I suggest trying our low impact cardio video: https://www.fitnesswithcindy.com/get-up-and-go-low-impact-cardio-exercise/
