Zumba Gold® is the Zumba Fitness program that's everything a traditional Zumba class is--an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness party--but in this class we take it just a little easier.
There's a common misperception that Zumba Gold is only for the older population, but it's actually for many more people than that, and just because you might be 50+ doesn't mean you automatically have to take the Gold class version.
I've had class members as old as 72 in my
Zumba Gold is really for:
1. Active adults
2. Students 18+ who are just starting on their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle
3. Those returning to exercise
4. Someone who has an illness/injury or are recovering from one who is medically cleared to exercise but needs a different pace.
A very neat thing about Zumba Gold that I learned at my instructor course is that even people who can't stand up a whole class or are confined to wheelchairs can do the class with modifications by a skilled instructor. So because of this program there really isn't anyone that can't participate in this healthy activity.
