Zumba has become a very popular form of exercise; it involves blending together dance movements to upbeat music and will give you a vigorous workout. As a form of exercise it is essential that you choose the right clothes to wear as this will enhance your overall zumba workout experience.
A good supporting bra is essential for all forms of exercise and when choosing zumba clothes start with the correct fitting bra. Ensure that the bra fits you correctly and isn’t too tight as this could cause restriction in movement and discomfort. It is always best to get yourself measured properly to avoid this.
Zumba clothes should cause as little restriction as possible as you want to be able to move freely; the best choices are clothes that stretch with your body without being too tight. You want them to be comfortable without digging in so ensure they are a good fit. Wear enough layers as you can always take them off once you build up a sweat, this may include jogging bottoms and shorts and a t-shirt and zip up sweat top.
Socks and shoes are important as your feet may take a battering, you want them to fit well and provide comfort and support. Ensure your socks give enough support so they don’t cause any rubbing or blisters. You can either wear trainers or dance shoes for zumba depending on your preference. It is essential that the shoe or trainer offers enough cushion and protection for your feet and has a good grip to avoid any trips or falls.
If you are a zumba fanatic who regularly attends classes then you may want to invest in official zumba clothes. These are available in many colours, styles and sizes; you can purchase them online or in some sport shops, they all carry the zumba official logo.
