Zumba A Fun Way to Get Fit

I have been rarely joining races but it doesn’t mean that I no longer want to be fit. For the past two weeks now I have been dancing and exercising through Zumba. I only do this at home while watching Zumba instructional videos. 🙂

 

 

According to Wikipedia.org

Zumba is a Colombian dance fitness program created by dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s.[1]

Zumba involves dance and aerobic elements. Zumba’s choreography incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts, and some Bollywood and belly dance moves. Squats and lunges are also included.[2] Zumba does not charge licensing fees to gyms or fitness centers.[3] There are 12 million people taking weekly Zumba classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 126 countries.[4]

I already got the hang of  Zumba but I had to take a rest for a couple of days because of the pain on my left foot. If you want a fun way to get fit you might want to try Zumba. 🙂
