SEE dances the stress away

SEE Tip: "Ditch the workout - join the party!" Zumba is for everyone and encourages people to get moving!  No dance experience necessary.  But does it work?

Yes!  A study at the University of Wisconsin confirmed that this party is a solid workout.  In fact, in an article about the study, lead researcher, Mary Luettgen had this to say about the results. “The surprising thing is that it doesn't matter what fitness level you’re at—our research shows that with Zumba everyone is working out at a zone that’s recommended for improving cardio health.  Both a fit person or a low-fitness person are going to get an equally good workout.”   So no matter your fitness level, you can benefit!
