Ever tried it?! Or wanted to try it but didn’t know what to expect?!
It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party™ that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.
Heres how it started!!
As a fitness instructor in his native Cali, Colombia, Beto’s life took an unexpected turn one fateful day in the mid-’90s when he darted off to teach an aerobics class and forgot his traditional aerobics music. He improvised using his own mix of music from tapes he had in his backpack (salsa and merengue music he grew up with). Spontaneously he created a new kind of dance-fitness, one that focused on letting the music move you (instead of counting reps over the music). Energy electrified the room; people couldn’t stop smiling. His class loved it! And on that day, a revolutionary new fitness concept was born – the Zumba ® Fitness-Party.
My Zumba journey!
I went to a fitness convention in 2007 and first experienced Zumba. I was smiling and laughing and sweating the whole time … Unfortunately it didn’t occur to me that i should get certified to teach it. I started teaching in 2010 and now it is one of my favorites because it’s fun and I love music and dancing!! Enjoy!
