Zumba

Zumba is based on the principle that a workout should be "fun and easy to do" allowing participants to achieve long-term health benefits. It’s a fusion of Latin and International music - dance themes that create a dynamic, exciting, effective fitness system! The routines feature aerobic/fitness interval training with a combination of fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body.
