The exercise phenomenon, Zumba, was born in Colombia when Alberto Perez forgot to bring the tapes (it was the 90s) for the aerobics class he was teaching. In a pinch, he used some salsa and merengue music instead and a workout craze was born. The latest incarnation is Aqua Zumba.
We all know exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle and most of us don’t do enough to stay fit. In the words of Alberto Perez, “Fitness shouldn’t be something that you dread, like the treadmill; it should be physically and emotionally rewarding.” So if you’re looking a new workout that’s tons of fun, try Aqua Zumba. You still move and groove but it’s low-impact and adds the challenge of water resistance. If you need more convincing, here are just a few of the ways Aqua Zumba classes should be in your future.

If you love to shake your booty, you’ll love Zumba. Adding water to the party makes it an even better exercise as the water adds extra resistance making you work harder.
