Why Zumba Students Need Chiropractors
Zumba is the name of a dance fitness program, created by dancer and choreographer Alberto ("Beto") Perez in Columbia during the 1990s. The idea behind his class, was to make excerising fun. Zumba classes are now offered through licensed instructors in more than 100,000 fitness center locations in 110 countries with ten million participants.
Music is the key ingredient to Zumba classes. The music created to specifically help you transition from one work out to another, from toning to strengthening then to cardio and then moving to another. You will work out every muscle group in the body. Though, most designed exercise programs will accomplish this feat as well. The Zumba program borrows from many dance styles including salsa and hip hop.
Zumba, though fun and exciting, if not practiced correctly, can knock your body directly out of alignment. Twisting and turning and dancing around will cause you to lose weight and rejuvenate, yes. But, have you considered the impact it is making on your skeletal structure?
We recommend working out! It is good for you. Though, at Better Health, we prefer practices that are going to focus on low impact, and specific body alignment. We want you to have a trained instructor who is going to adjust you, and teach you while you are practicing and training. The idea is to keep your alignment throughout the day, and your life. Practicing activities such as Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are great outlets for this type of body awareness. Though, we have to admit, not as high energy as Zumba, though you might not find yourself limping to the chiropractor the next day!
