At 5 Bridges Health & Fitness, we believe working out should be challenging and fun. When you combine high-intensity cardio with upbeat dance, you get the world-famous Zumba® fitness program. Zumba® was founded by dancer “Beto” Perez and combines aerobic exercise with Latin-inspired dance moves. Don’t let the fun nature of Zumba® fool you — by the end of a session, you’ll be glistening in sweat!
Zumba® has risen in popularity over the past decade, and for good reason. It’s a highly effective cardio workout that torches calories in a fun, community-building setting. 5 Bridges Health & Fitness offers both classic Zumba® as well as a Zumba Gold® designed specifically for our “active agers.”
Zumba® provides a full-body aerobic workout that can help you burn anywhere from 300-900 calories per class. Why absently exercise on a treadmill while waiting for the minutes to pass when you could be dancing with a group of friends? The energetic group nature of Zumba® makes it ideal for those who love social exercise and feel inspired and encouraged in a group setting.
By taking Zumba® classes regularly and improving your aerobic function, you can help fight against heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Dancing is also an excellent exercise for your mind and keeps your brain healthy and active as you learn new choreography and dedicate it to memory. Other benefits of Zumba® include:

Zumba® began in 1998 as a combination of rumba and jazzercize techniques. Its founder, Albert “Beto” Perez, created the class after forgetting to bring his jazzercize music to class, and instead, using the Latin tapes he had on hand. As he led his class through routines with riveting club rhythms, his class’s reception told him he had inadvertently created a hit. Beto has since turned Zumba® into a worldwide phenomenon with classes, videos and games. There now are Zumba® classes in 180 countries worldwide.
Each of our Zumba® classes is taught by a certified instructor who has extensive experience. Our instructors will encourage you throughout the class as you dance along to energetic choreography that will get your heart rate up and blood pumping.
