The Zumba program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program that will lure you to fitness. Zumba combines exercise and fun, using every muscle of the body as you shimmy, shake and salsa your way fit. The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. A typical Zumba session lasts about an hour and incorporates several dance styles, including cumbia, merengue, salsa, reggaeton, mambo, rumba, flamenco and calypso with some belly dancing and hip-hop. 
No dance experience (or partner) needed.
You do not need to be able to dance well to reap the benefits of Zumba. Instructors choreograph relatively simply routines that are fun, but manageable to most people. The point of Zumba is to have fun, not impress judges. Do not let the appearance of the class intimidate you. Even if people in the class perform high-intensity steps, your teacher will show low-impact versions so you can modify according to your ability.

Zumba, Zumba Toning, Zumba Gold, and Gold Toning.

Zumba is an optimal fitness choice, mixing cardio intervals with resistance training. Many experts believe that an interval/resistance combination maximizes caloric output, fat burning, and total body toning. Zumba mixes effective body sculpting movements with easy-to-follow, fun dance steps. People seem to forget about working out during a Zumba session, allowing them to exercise longer, and burn even more calories. They also experience lasting increased energy levels.
Zumba Toning When it comes to body sculpting, Zumba Toning raises the bar (or rather, the toning stick). It combines targeted body-sculpting exercises and high-energy cardio work with Latin-infused Zumba moves to create a calorie-torching, strength-training dance fitness-party. Students learn how to use lightweight, maraca-like Toning Sticks to enhance rhythm and tone all their target zones, including arms, abs, glutes and thighs. Zumba Toning is the perfect way for enthusiasts to sculpt their bodies naturally while having a total blast.How to get the best out of your Zumba class. Zumba Gold and Gold Toning is modified for the older active adult or someone in the beginning of their fitness journey. Same music, same fun...just lower impact.
1. Wear low tread sneakers
Although the class seems more like a party rather than exercise, you'll need to wear proper athletic footwear to protect the knee and ankles during twists and turns and to cushion your joints. You want the bottom of your sneakers to be as smooth as possible, yet have well-cushioned support inside.  Your best bet are to use dance/jazz shoes for class.  Zumba recommends any shoe that has good cushion support, medial-lateral support (for side to side movements) and low-traction rubber (for easy sliding and turning).  It is not recommended that you do cardio workouts barefoot. 
2. Water Water Water.  Before, during, and after your workout. Most people burn between 500-1000 calories a workout!

3. Dance at your own pace.  Do not try to move like anyone else.  Do what's comfortable for you.  You can modify any exercise to your personal comfort level.  If you can't perform a certain move, march in place - it's a CARDIO workout so keep that heart rate going.

4. LET GO! and join the party!

Zumba Gold targets our largest demographic: baby boomers It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement and fitness as a regular part of their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun. The Zumba® Gold-Toning program offers the best of both worlds — the exhilarating experience of a Zumba Fitness-Party with the benefits of safe-and-effective strength training. It’s an easy-to-follow, health-boosting dance-fitness program for baby boomers as well as beginners. Through dynamic lightweight resistance training and exciting international rhythms, Zumba Gold-Toning classes help participants build muscle strength, increase bone density, and improve mobility, posture and coordination. The new Gold classes will be in addition to our existing Zumba and Zumba Toning classes that are held at the same location on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9:a.m. Some of our regulars are talking about coming 5 times a week to get into their best shape this summer.We provide the maraca-like weights so participants can just walk in and start toning. It is recommended that participants wear comfortable clothing and smooth tread shoes (so they don't grip the floor and ease in turning) with good cushioning and support. Bring a water bottle and a small towel. The first class is always free. Drop in for $8.00 or purchase a 10 visit punch card for $65.00. The prices and cards are the same for all of the classes at the Avalon.
