What is Zumba®

Zumba® is not just a workout; it's a dance party that combines energetic Latin and international music with fun and effective dance moves. Created in the 1990s, Zumba® has taken the fitness world by storm, offering a dynamic and enjoyable way to stay active.

Alberto "Beto" Perez - The Mastermind Behind Zumba®

Alberto "Beto" Perez, a fitness instructor and choreographer, inadvertently invented Zumba® in the '90s. Legend has it that he forgot his traditional aerobics music for a class and improvised with his personal salsa and merengue tapes. The result? A revolutionary and exhilarating fitness program that seamlessly blends dance and exercise.

Beto's innovative approach to fitness has transformed the way people think about working out. His infectious energy and passion for dance laid the foundation for the global Zumba® phenomenon, inspiring millions to join the movement and experience the joy of getting fit through dance.

Improved Mood

Zumb, with its dynamic and rhythmic movements, triggers the release of endorphins – the body's natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins act as natural stress relievers and mood elevators. The upbeat and energetic nature of Zumb choreography encourages the production of these neurotransmitters, creating a positive and euphoric feeling during and after the workout.
