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 :-)

Everyone knows about the fat-burning and muscle strengthening benefits of exercise. But, regular workouts can also make your skin look better. Why?

* It boosts blood circulation. The improved blood flow not only brings additional nutrients to your skin, it also helps remove damaging toxins.

* It helps eliminate wrinkles. The blood also carries oxygen that stimulates the production of collagen -- the connective tissue that helps "plump up" your skin.

* It reduces stress. From acne to crows feet, many common skin problems are caused by muscle tension and stress. Exercise is a proven way to relieve stress.

* It unclogs pores. A fast-paced aerobic workout causes sweat. And the process of sweating just naturally tends to clean out facial pores.

So, what are you waiting for? Do you want a slim, toned flexible body and clear skin? Heather's note: Come take a Zumba class and let's get started now!
