In the world of health and fitness, the latest rage is that of Zumba. It is a type of exercise that combines fun and a full body workout. Zumba classes are more often referred to a dance party than an actual exercise class. Zumba is a Latin-inspired fitness program that involves aerobic dancing and other cardiovascular exercises. The word zumba originates 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 and 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. It became an instant hit to his aerobics class back then, and some 20 years later, more than 10 million people have enjoyed the dance exercises around the world.

Various dance styles are incorporated in every Zumba class, which typically lasts for an hour or so. Cumbia, Calypso, Merengue, and Salsa are just a few examples of dances that are mixed with endurance and strength training exercises. Modern and international pop hits are also popular in some classes.

Zumba is the ultimate fitness program that has swept our nation. It will inspire, energize, and transform your body to a new you.
