What to Wear to Your First Zumba Workout Class
Zumba is one of the most popular workout classes across the country. You can find a Zumba class at a local gym in just about every city nowadays. If you are want to give this dance workout a try, here are some tips when it comes to dressing for your class.
The first thing you should address is the shoes you are going to wear for the workout. The best shoes for Zumba are ones that have a thin tread on the bottom and are lightweight. You wouldn’t want to wear a running shoe for a Zumba class because the tread on running shoes are generally thicker than a fitness or general aerobic shoe. Make sure that your shoes fit properly and they support you well. Lastly, make sure you wear comfortable socks that aren’t too heavy and won’t irritate your feet or ankles.
Zumba is not only a great workout but it also promotes feeling good about your body and not being afraid to show it off a little. With that being said, avoid wearing big baggy t-shirts and heavy sweatpants to a Zumba class. Instead look for more fitted clothes such as yoga pants or even a cute workout skirt. A fitted or close fit t-shirt works well as anything heavier may cause you to get way too hot and anything bulky could inhibit some of the dance moves. You don’t have to show a lot of skin, but you also shouldn’t be doing your Zumba workout in pajamas.
