Zumba Gold is based on the same dance moves used in the original Zumba class. The Gold class, however, is less intense, with dance routines designed for beginners and older adults who may have limited capabilities. The class consists of a series of easy-to-follow dance moves. Some moves are even designed to be performed on a chair, which makes this class accessible to people who are sedentary or are in a wheelchair. The moves focus on improving balance, strength and flexibility, while raising your heart beat and improving cardiovascular ability.
