This is the original form of Zumba that was first developed in 2001. Set to Latin music with some global beats, this is a mix of high and low-intensity workouts. In fact, the entire steps are planned in such a way that you will never feel overtaxed with the workout. It is mainly a cardio-based workout.
The speed and intensity of the classic Zumba may pose a challenge to the older exercisers or those who have mobility issues. However, there is no need to despair as they have Zumba Gold for their aid. Zumba gold is a bit slower and easier than the classic beat. But the benefits remain the same.
