Zumba: the fitness dance that has taken over the world.

Zumba is really a physical fitness dance which has taken over the world. It was not always that
way. It took four trips from his native Colombia to Miami before Beto Perez got his big break. The
fitness and dance instructor simply wished to bring his work out classes to America. But with little
capital and even less English, he couldn't get fitness-center managers to view his Latin-dance-
inspired videos. Eventually one manager in Miami gave him the chance to demonstrate his stuff
and ... Several years later, with the help of two enterprising entrepreneurs, Perez has built a
profitable business through which five million people take classes every week from 30,000 certified
instructors (who pay $250 for training and a license) in 75 countries, from Canada to China. In
excess of four million DVDs have been sold, and Zumba has taken off.

What exactly is it! Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that combines red-hot
international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious, easy-to-learn
steps to form a "fitness-party" which is downright addictive.
Since its creation in 2001, the Zumba program is continuing to grow to become the world's largest
- and most successful - dance-fitness program with more than 12 million people of all shapes,
sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba courses in over 220,000 places throughout more than 125
countries.
All Zumba classes feature exotic tempos set to high-energy Latin and international beats and
easy-to-follow moves. It's broken up into six different groups to be able to provide something for
every type and ages .
First there's Zumba which draws people in with its high energy and exotic beats. Before
participants are aware of it, they really are becoming fit and their levels of energy are soaring! It is
easy to do, effective and absolutely invigorating, often building a deep-rooted community among
returning students.
Next is Zumba Gold which is designed to focus on the largest growing segment of the populace:
middle-agers. It adjusts the moves and pacing to accomodate the needs of the active older
participant, as well as those just beginning. Kept the same is the element of a Fitness-Party, the
zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the stimulating, easy-to-follow
moves and most of all, fun.
Zumba Toning features the toning stick and combines targeted body-sculpting exercises using the
same high-energy cardio work and Latin rhythms to tone areas as arms, abs, glutes and thighs.
Aqua Zumba simply takes the party into the pool.
Zumbatomic is designed children of ages 4-12, It contains the same high-energy though fitness
routines are specially choreographed to be kid-friendly all the music such as hip-hop, reggaeton,
cumbia geared to be the music of the kids.
Zumba in the Circuit is perfect for the more serious individuals combining 30 minutes of high
intensity Latin-inspired dance-fitness moves with circuit training exercises for strength. At 30
minutes total it can be an excellent lunch break activity.
Zumba Gold-Toning is similar to Zumba in the circuit but is softened to be used with older
participants and beginners.
A caution amongst fun and partying; this is high energy and, especially at the start there is a of risk
over doing it and finding yourself with injuries. Take your time and enjoy but be safe.
