People who have never exercised are dancing their way to fitness and enjoying every minute.
The essence of Zumba Classes are that they are designed for fun first and fitness second.
Zumba Fitness, which owns the Zumba trademark, describes Zumba as an “exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness party.”
The Zumba craze began in the mid-1990s, when Alberto “Beto” Perez, a fitness instructor in Cali, Colombia, forgot his traditional music for an aerobics class and ended up improvising with Latin tapes he had in his backpack. The program was an instant hit.
In 2001, Perez brought the concept to Miami and with two entrepreneurs created Zumba Fitness and the program they describe as “exercise in disguise.”
