Zumba Fitness @ Wylam Library

Zumba flyer
Over the past two months, Wylam Library has been offering Zumba classes for adults and they seem to love it! Zumba is a Latin-based dance that was created by Berto Perez in 1999 and loosely translated from a Columbian slang word means "to move fast or buzz like a bee."

Zumba combines body-sculpting moves with the dance steps of meringue, cumbia, reggaeton, salsa, mambo, hip-hop, rumba, calypso, and flamenco. This fun exercise program allows our patrons to have fun while burning calories. You can also do the workouts in the privacy of your own home by watching and practicing them on DVD.

This program has been a great way to motivate many of our patrons to get up and get moving while introducing them to something new. Not only is Zumba incredibly fun, it is an excellent form of cardiovascular exercise. A high-intensity Zumba workout can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour. In addition to the workout, this time allows the staff to interact with our patrons on a more personal basis. We get the opportunity to ask those key questions, take suggestions from those we serve, and improve or change our services to better accommodate their needs.
