How's Zumba different? Doesn't pretend. Nor perpetuate falsehoods. Training, not to mention weightloss, invariably requires exertion. But not monotony. Zumba doesn't downplay that physical investment. Just makes it palatable. Nothing weird or fantastical. Just employing fun activities that naturally condition.

Zumba combines low intensity with high intensity. Fusing traditional aerobic/anaerobic exercises with exhilarating dance moves - from styles such as: salsa, mambo, samba, tango, hip hop, and merengue. Eclectic, interval-based training, ensuring you maintain intensity for calorie-burning, minus robotic repetition.
