Introduction to Zumba Gold
ZUMBA GOLD® is a series of fitness programs specifically designed to take the exciting Latin and international dance rhythms created in the original ZUMBA Program and bring them to the active older adult, the beginner participant, and other special populations that may need modifications for success. Created to emphasize the basics, this explosive program is so easy to follow that people of any age can do it! This invigorating Latin-inspired, dance-fitness program includes Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Belly Dance, Flamenco and Tango.
The ZUMBA GOLD program creates a party-like atmosphere. It is exhilarating, easy and effective. It’s great for the mind, body and soul of this expanding active older adult population. According to the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the goals of an exercise program for older individuals are “maintenance of functional capacity for independent living, reduction in the risk of cardiovascular disease, retardation of the progression of chronic diseases, promotion of psychological well being, and provision of opportunities for social interaction.” (ACSM 2000) (Janot & Kravitz 2006)
