Have you guys ever heard of Zumba?

Well, according to Wikipedia, it is a "dance fitness program" that was started by Beto Perez in the 1990s. It combines different forms of dance, including reggaeton, salsa, mambo, cha-cha, etc into a fitness program with some basic steps and moves. Zumba classes are offered in gyms across the United States (and perhaps even the world!). They include dancing to super energizing music and provide lots of fun and exercise, including toning, resistance, cardio, endurance, etc.

Enough with the history. I've been taking Zumba classes at the local gym for the past two semesters. Let me tell you, they are AWESOME! In my opinion, it's more fun than spinning, cardio kickboxing, cardio dance, running on a treadmill, lifting weights, and lots of other stuff. And it totally works - according to an article on CNN, it burns up to 700 calories per hour. Now, that's definitely a lot of calories.


If you guys and gals get a chance, I would definitely go check out a Zumba class. Trust me, you'll love it =D
