How It Works: 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’ll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective and super fun!  A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance, flexibility, and an energy boost.
