Ditch the Workout...Join the Party!

What is a Zumba fitness class like? It's a very exciting dance party atmosphere full of Latin and international music. You'll forget you're working out with the sexy but simple moves to dance music like Cha Cha, Salsa, reggaeton, rumba and more. Best of all, you don't need any previous dance experience!

It's fun and effective, using interval training combining fast and slow rhythms for an effective aerobic workout while at the same time targetting your legs, abs, glutes and arms.

The workout is basically watch and follow. The moves are repeated often enough for you to catch on and they're not complicated. The routines are repeated week after week with additions every now and then to spice things up even more!

According to the Zumba website, "Zumba combines high energy and motivating music with unique moves and combinations that allow the Zumba participants to dance away their worries. It is based on the principle that a workout should be 'FUN AND EASY TO DO' in order for Zumba participants to stick to the Zumba fitness program to achieve long-term health benefits. Zumba is not only great for the body, but it is also great for the mind. It is a 'feel happy' workout."

Zumba is very infectious and is definitely the latest, most exciting fitness sensation! What a fun way to workout to lose weight or just become a healthier new you - you'll love the results. Be sure to bring your family and friends to be a part of the Zumba Fitness party! Check out the Zumba website here for more info: http://www.zumba.com/. Happy Zumba-ing :-)

Zumba Songs and Ideas

Hey all,

I just found this song. It's a Samba and it's AWESOME!!! http://www.ijigg.com/songs/V2FCBEFP0. It's called RUMBAKALAO. When you click on the above link, just scroll down abit to where you see the title of the song and click the arrow to play.

Then, have you seen my choreo to "Crazy Little Thing Called Love"? Check it out: http://www.whimsies-online.com/crazy_little_thing_choreo.htm I introduced it to one of my classes last night and at the end everyone applauded - they LOVED IT!!! Now I will introduce it to my 2nd class tonight - hopefully I'll get the same response.

All you Zumba teachers out there - have you ever introduced Paso Doble to your classes? I'm thinking of doing just that, but a very simple choreo. Paso is a very dramatic dance and I'm hoping they'd like it.

That's it for now!

Oh, and I'm anxiously awaiting my ZUMBA Halloween class next Wednesday - I still have to buy the material to make my costume - that's today and then I have to sew it all - ACK!!!

Zumba huggs,
