    Survivor guide: Zumba

    Zumba is the latest fitness craze to sweep across the nation. Promising to help you tone up, lose weight and have fun all at the same time, Zumba is a high energy dance-based workout, which combines international beats and rhythms to provide benefits for the mind and body.

    The last thing you want from your Zumba class is a lengthy wait in the local Accident and Emergency Department, so follow these simple steps to prevent slips, trips and falls and dance-related injuries:

    Preventing slips in a public place

    Anyone who offers a public service is required to follow health and safety measures to protect people and prevent injuries. If you are in charge of running a Zumba class, it is important that you take the appropriate actions to reduce the risk of injuries and ensure that everyone has a memorable class for all the right reasons. Health and safety guidelines for Zumba classes involve:

    • providing a suitable and safe environment for the class; the flooring is especially important
    • ensuring that the instructor employed to take the class has the relevant training
    • ensuring the flooring is well-maintained and there is no damage, which could increase the risk of slips and trips
    • providing first aid treatment when necessary

    Tips for surviving your first Zumba class

    Going to any class for the first time can be a daunting prospect; what if everyone has already nailed the routines? What if your coordination fails you at the vital moment and you fall spectacularly? What if everyone else is much fitter? Here are some simple tips to ensure you sail through your class:

    • wear appropriate clothing; this is especially important when it comes to footwear
    • warm up properly
    • start at an appropriate level; if you’re a beginner, don’t join an advanced class
    • stay hydrated
    • don’t push yourself too hard
