Have fun while you burn calories this summer! Zumba, the dance fitness programme takes dancing to a whole new level with classes being held in swimming pools this summer. Certified trainer Tapas Das holds Aqua Zumba classes every week at the Calcutta Swimming Club. " Simply by virtue of being done in water, Aqua Zumba requires more muscle power and is more effective in burning calories," says Das.
No swimming skills are required, all you need is to be above the age of 13 and have basic physical fitness. Since the movements don't require the participants to be completely submerged and are practiced at the shallow end of the pool, Aqua Zumba is a safe and fun way to work out while you learn some salsa moves as well.
