What is Circuit Training?
Circuit training is like the “musical chairs” version of an exercise routine. Participants begin in one station, perform an exercise (for anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 minutes), and then move the next station. With a focus on strength training, circuit classes can include step, aerobics, and muscle toning. Top athletes often use the circuit to get their heart-rate up and boost the aerobic aspect of their training.
How Does Zumba in the Circuit Work?
In Zumba in the Circuit, participants alternate between circuit weight-training machines and classic Zumba dance-fitness moves. At a specified sound cue, participants leave one machine or dance move and go to the next. Typical machines exercises include leg extensions, bicep curls, chest presses, and more. The weight machines build strength, targeting all the muscle groups of the body, while the Zumba steps add cardio into the mix. Add to this your favorite Zumba music beats (ranging from salsa to samba to reggaeton to meringue to African to jazz to hip-hop and more), and what you get is a full-body, fun workout like no other.
