Joining the Zumba Fitness Craze

Zumba fitness is really popular nowadays, even our church is riding on its popularity. Our church admin thought of inviting people in nearby places to attend the free Zumba fitness program as our way of engaging with people. Last week in preparation for the Zumba fitness class we bought a flat screen TV, tv mount stand and zumba fitness DVDs.

Zumba is a Colombian dance fitness program created by well-known celebrity fitness trainer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990s. He took advantage and incorporated Latin dance in a fitness program. The dance moves are based on a variety of latin styles inclinding meringue, pop, reggaeton, cumbia, mambo, slasa, salsaton, flamenco, rumba, and calypso. It also incorporates fitness exercises such as bicep curls, knee lifts and squats. Beto collaborates with two entrepreneurs Alberto Perlman and Alberto Aghion, and together they created a huge dance fitness craze. Today millions of DVDs have been sold in more than 30 countries.

Below is a sample video of Zumba Fitness.
