Zumba Fitness - Ditch the Workout, Join the Party!

Move to the Zumba!  You can say it’s the new craze in keeping fit... in an exhilarating way!  The Zumba program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create the fitness program that will blow you away.  Their goal is stated as “we want you to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked”.  And it seems to be working, as of October 2010 it is claimed that the Zumba program is being taught at over 90,000 locations in 110 countries!

Just a small history, Zumba was created when “Beto” Perez stumbled upon the concept of Latin-inspired dance-fitness in his native Cali, Colombia in the mid-‘90s.  After the success in Colombia, Beto brought the concept to the United States, and from then on it was a continuous success story.  Check the site out.  You can even search for a class close to your location, or even search for an instructor.
