What Is Zumba?  ( Colombian slang for moving fast and having fun )

Zumba® fuses hypnotic latin rhythms and easy to follow moves to create a dynamic fitness program that will blow you away. The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms, and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt. Zumba is a very dynamic and exciting class full of Latin and exotic music flavors.  It targets areas such as glutes, legs, arms, abdominals, and the most important muscle in the body, the heart!  It is a mixture of body sculpting movements and easy to follow dance steps, although you do not have to know how to dance to do Zumba.


Who created Zumba?

Beto Perez, of Colombia (South America) is the creator, founder of Zumba®, and director of the national Zumba Master Trainer Team. He is a professional dancer and the former choreographer for Shakira and other high profile celebrities.

Zumba is Colombian slang meaning to move fast and have fun. The aerobics workout is famous for its Latin-inspired dance steps - Salsa, Merengue, Flamenco and Samba. 

Zumba's success certainly stems from its Latin roots, but nowadays Perez is mixing it up. In his new video series and in your Zumba classes, you'll hear a little of country music, funk, and rock and roll, (of course you'll still hear your favorite Latin music).  Adding a variety of world influences, including Indian harmonies, Latin beats and the thick bass of African Reggaetone to the mix, offers something for everyone.

Zumba Fitness released a new set of instructional videos (2008), along with a CD of original workout songs, composed by Perez with the help of famed Latin music producer Emilio Estefan.
