Zumba® fitness is designed to bring people together to sweat it out! We take the "work" out of workout by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you will see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise.
