Perfect for those looking to make a splash by adding a low-impact, high-energy aquatic exercise to their fitness routine. Aqua Zumba® blends the Zumba® philosophy with water resistance, for one pool party you shouldn't miss! There is less impact on your joints during an Aqua Zumba® class so you can really let loose. Water creates natural resisitance, which means every step is more challenging and helps tone your muscles. You'll feel like you're at a vacation resort!
Reminder: Bring a towel and lots of water!
