Zumba Gold®

Ditch the workout and join the party! Zumba Gold® targets the largest growing segment of the population: baby boomers. It takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggae; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere.

Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement and fitness as a regular part of their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold® is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun. Zumba Gold® is an aerobics interval class that uses Latin-based rhythms and other dance-inspired tempos to create a fun upbeat workout. View this program on our website calendar by clicking here.
