Zumba is a dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990s. The program combines Latin and international music with dance in an effort to make exercise fun. Zumba classes are offered through licensed instructors in more than 60,000 fitness center locations in 105 countries and seven-and-a-half million participants. DVDs are also available for learning at home. Classes and instructional DVDs use music based on salsa, merengue, cumbia, reggaeton, samba and other international music styles and forms. The Zumba program is recognized by the America's leading fitness educators, including the Aerobic Fitness Association of America, IDEA Health and Fitness Association, and the American Council on Exercise. ***(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
I'm currently on my 2nd week now and guys, trust me this is really fun. You don't have to worry if you have two left feet, the video will show you how to do the basic steps for all kinds of music be it salsa, reggaeton or even merengue- my favorite! Currently, Zumba is a major hit in other countries, I just hope that they can offer it soon in Philippines. Although I have read it in girltalk that Gold's gym now offers Zumba classes I am not so sure though. For now, I am doing my workout by watching their videos, I was able to get a copy of Zumba Fitness' Total Body Transformation System DVD.
How bout you, what type of work out do you do to keep your body in shape?
For you guys who loves to dance, then I highly recommend you to try this...so what are you waiting for? Let's Zumba!
Sweet day to you all!
