I want curves like Amber, an ass like Kim and moves like Shakira! But really what I want most of all is lose the pudge and muffins before I make my pointless 2011 New Years Resolution. When my girlie’s bb status said “Going Zumba tonight!” I just had to tag along. If you’re like me and working out is like that chore you have to do (like cleaning the loo or shredding your old paper bills) you’ll be excited to hear that Zumba is not like conventional working out.
Invented by Beto Perez on a improvisational whim, Zumba is a sexy Latin beat, a fusion of Reggaeton, salsa, flamenco and many other styles of Latin dance. Your instructor will have you shaking your hips and booty to Daddy Yankee and Pitbull, guaranteeing to give you an all over toning, cardio work out that leaves you drenched in sweat in under 30 minutes. The trick is to keep your tummy tucked in and muscles tight whilst dancing, this gives your abs the wake up call they’ve been missing without the sit-ups!
Zumba is for all ages and backgrounds; no previous dance history is needed as all classes will start off at a basic level.
Widely and increasingly popular Zumba is available at most gyms and dance studios across the UK, let me see you shake those hips mami!
