The original concept of Zumba® combines a dance workout with a party-like atmosphere. Zumba® Gold takes the popular Latin-dance inspired workout of Zumba® and makes it accessible for seniors, beginners or others needing modifications in their exercise routine.
Zumba® Gold builds cardiovascular health by challenging the heart and working the muscles of the hips, legs and arms with dance moves. Zumba® Gold came about because certain populations found some of the dance moves too intense and fast for their abilities.
