Get ready to Zumba
Zumba is a Latin-inspired fitness program that involves aerobic dancing and
other cardiovascular exercises. The word “zumba” has its roots in Colombia and
it means “to move fast and have fun”, which is exactly what the fitness program
is all about. Exercise is done with upbeat Latin music to create a fun, party atmosphere.
Zumba was created in the 1990s by Alberto “Beto” Perez. The whole concept
back then was to let the music move your body instead of doing repetitions and
counting based on the music.
Various dance styles are incorporated in a Zumba class, Flamenco, Rumba, Mambo, Merengue, and Salsa are just a
few examples of dances that are mixed with endurance and strength training
