ZUMBA GOLD Zumba For All Ages and Abilities

The Zumba® Gold Fitness program is second to none. It is an innovative, fun and exciting program. It was designed for the active older adult, the true beginner, and/or people who are not used to exercising, or people who may be limited physically. The main difference between Zumba Gold and Zumba Basic is Zumba Gold is done at a lower intensity, not as fast, but certainly just as much fun. The same great Latin styles of music and dance are used.

This amazing program is very easy to follow so anyone at any age will be able to do Zumba Gold. Dances that are specifically highlighted in this program include the Merengue, Salsa Cha Cha, Cumbia, Salsa, Rock & Roll (including Twist and Charleston), Belly Dance, Flamenco, and Tango.
With the Baby Boomer population getting older and people living longer, the number of people over the age of 65 is expected to double within the next 30-35 years. It only makes sense that the Zumba® Gold Fitness program will continue to grow with the aging population and be extremely popular because of the fun and party like atmosphere and health benefits.
As we age, changes take place in our bodies. We slow down a bit, we may have a few more aches and pains, sometimes we have changes with our blood pressure, body fat percentage, blood sugar, and of course, muscle mass, bone density and strength. It is all part of growing older. The Zumba® Gold program takes these issues into consideration and strives to improve our balance, strength, flexibility and most importantly, the heart.

A Zumba Gold class will be a little different than a Zumba Basic class. The class is a little shorter  45 minutes. A longer warm up and cool down period is used Nicki will ensure that she is aware of students’ physical changes and make sure they participate at a level that is comfortable for them. 
Some of the main goals and benefits of Zumba Gold include improving the quality of life; maintaining functional skills such as ADLs or activities of daily living; providing classes that are appropriate for the participants; to make sure the routine is easy to learn and follow so that success can be achieved quickly; and also to just have FUN.
