The Beginning Of Zumba
It all started in South America, once coach Alberto Perez launched an aerobic program that included moves inspired by Latin dance.
Since then, this fun and effective sport wins a lot of fans every day. Join the fun!
Each Zumba workout includes aerobic moves and dance steps inspired by salsa, merengue, belly dancing, African dancing, and even hip-hop.
As mentioned at the beginning, Zumba was born in Columbia, by chance.
One day, a very popular coach named Alberto Perez was driving to the aerobics room where he teaches when he realized that he forgot the music tape for workout home.
He was a Latin music fan and took the tape from the car and improvised a dance aerobics class mixed with most ranging from salsa and merengue to reggaeton and belly dancing.
Participants felt so well that the newly designed program has turned into a real-craze Zumba.
Today, Zumba is taught in no less than 125 countries in hundreds of aerobic halls with thousands of participants who leave workouts with a smile after such a lovely time!
An hour of Zumba helps you burn between 400 and 600 calories.
The great part is that you will learn during the workout a few steps that will remove the deadlock on the dance floor or at a party.
