Zumba

Zumba commonly refers to a cardio-based aerobic workout that's based off of traditional salsa and Latin dance moves.

This workout trend started in Columbia in 2001, and while its roots are in traditional dance, the classes have a club-like atmosphere and upbeat music that makes them appealing to a wide range of fitness enthusiasts. Boasting the ability to burn 500 to 1000 calories per session, Zumba's slogan is: "Ditch the Workout, Join the Party" — an attitude that's gained them some 14 million followers in 185 countries.
