A Zumba class invoice is used by fitness centers and private Zumba instructors to officially request and collect payment for group and one-on-one Zumba instruction. Classes are typically charged on a per-class basis or on a membership basis, where customers pay a monthly fee for access to Zumba classes.
What is Zumba?
Zumba is a type of fitness program that combines dance moves of Latin origin alongside upbeat music in fluctuating levels of intensity, resulting in a type of exercise that burns fat and increases the cardiovascular health of those who regularly practice it. The practice of Zumba is full-body in nature, regularly engaging many of the body’s major and minor muscle groups, including:
- Core (abdominals / midsection)
- Legs (quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves)
- Glutes + hip flexors
- Upper body (toning through arm movement)
According to a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), Zumba burns an average of 9.5 calories per minute; considerably higher than comparable high-intensity fitness programs, including kickboxing and power yoga.
