Abstract:
Zumba is a dance fitness program (created by Alberto “Beto” Perez in the 1990s), with classes tailored for different groups of people (children, adults, and seniors). The purpose of this thesis is to provide the general public with information regarding the cardiovascular, immunological, and cognitive systems as well as describe the cardiovascular, immunological and cognitive effects of aerobic activity such as Zumba, both in an acute manner (during the class) and chronically (if Zumba is used as part of a long term training program). Hopes are that if enough emphasis is put on the correlation between exercise and health benefits, individuals will make their health a priority, and prevent illnesses associated with these physiological systems.
