Zumba is becoming a cool new form of workout in India but how effective is it?
Zumba Fitness is a Latin-Inspired, easy-to-follow, calorie-burning, dance fitness party and it works for weight loss, weight management, fat loss and body toning. It takes the basic steps from Latin dance styles like the Meringue, Cumbia, Salsa, Latin-pop, Reggaetton, Bachhata, Calypso, Samba etc and merges a fitness formula to it. In Zumba you work out from head to toe using muscles you would otherwise never have used in a normal gym class. Its tagline ‘Party Yourself into Shape’ explains the reason for its popularity. It’s Dance; it’s Fitness; it’s Fun. You come out of a Zumba Fitness class with a lot more energy; with a bag full of stress out of your system and most importantly with a smile. Zumba uses all the basic fitness formulas. It works on the concept of intermittent training, i.e. a fast paced track that sends your heart rate racing which increases your stamina, followed by a slow paced song breaking you into a sweat, toning your muscles and burning more fat than ever. With Zumba one can lose weight and tone up rather quickly and reach a fitness-high and that too in a fun way. In a typical Zumba class you can burn about 700-1000 calories; all this in just one hour of pure fun.

Is it a prospective career option and what is the scope for an instructor in India?
There is currently a need for innovative fitness techniques in the health industry. People are eager to try out new forms of fitness especially those that are not from the stereotypical exercise point of view. Hence it becomes a great career opportunity for young fitness enthusiasts. The scope is unimaginable. It can be in the form of personal classes, small group classes or as big as corporate classes or even bigger events.

Who can become a zumba instructor and what is the certification required to practice as an instructor?
Anyone who has a keen interest in the field of health, fitness and dance can take a courageous step forward and make this their field of expertise. Zumba Fitness has professional Zumba Educational Specialists (ZES) who are authorized to conduct training programs and certify aspiring instructors.

Does it involve a lot of financial investment and how long before one can stand to gain a pretty penny?
Like any other fitness certification programs, this one also requires an initial investment. It can range anywhere from 250$ – 300$ for the certificate course.
Depending on the capability of the individual aspirant one can start to gain within the first few months itself.

Is it a monetarily beneficial career option?
The earning of a Zumba Instructor is based on the way the individual runs his or her classes. So this can be very subjective. It can range from 15000 to over a lakh depending on the business model chosen.

What would you say are the advantages and disadvantages of becoming a zumba instructor?
I see more advantages than disadvantages. It is a blessing to be able to touch peoples’ lives through this medium. I have had clients that not only showed improvements in the health and fitness parameters but also in their emotional well-being. Most importantly you work for only about 2-3 hours a day. As instructors we maintain our health and fitness levels while making others healthy. And the list can go on.

The only disadvantage I see today is only in cases where you over estimate the number of classes that you can conduct as an individual and end up in a complete burn-out situation.

Do you think Zumba will be a big trend in 2013?
Zumba Fitness has gained lot of popularity in the recent past. To me, it surely is the beginning of an all new way of living. It is definitely one of the huge trends of 2013 and something people should look forward to.
