How it Started
It was during March 2010 while training a few of my sport karate students in preparation for karate tournament .I had my karate tournament students bouncing around to a upbeat latin american and techno CD so that they could get a better sense of rhythm and thus be able to move more fluidly across a tournament ring.
One of the parents - liked the idea and suggested that I try a class and invite a few ladies. Not knowing to much about the aerobic and dancing side , I decided to look at both the Taebo Tapes of Billy Blanks and ZUMBA fitness tapes of Beto Perez the founder.
Immediately I fell in love with the way Zumba was performed - The music is amazing and the people love to dance --The program is a one hour class involving Core muscles that are worked by various songs and routines that are easy to do. The moves will get you hooked. Everyone wants to lose weight and feel good , and what better way then to do it having FUN.
Studios now in Monte Vista , Parow , Tableview and Melkbosstrand . You just cant beat Zumba when it comes to a unique fitness experience ... Its laughter ,sweat and fun the whole way.
The Zumba workout provides fitness benefits because its routines feature interval training sessions with fast and slow rhythms and resistance training, which are intended to tone and sculpt the body while burning fat.
Music is the key ingredient to the classes. The score, created with specific beats and tempo changes, transitions the workout from one toning, strengthening or cardio move to another, thus targeting every major muscle group in the body. The Zumba section borrows Latin flavor from the following dance styles: Cumbia, Salsa, Merengue, Mambo, Reggaeton, Samba, Belly dancing, Hip hop music .
The Zumba fitness and weight loss program in Tableview and the other four studios fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to follow moves with easy to follow punches and kicks to create a unique fitness program that will blow you away.
Our goal is simple: --- We want you to want to work out, to love working out. achieve benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie-burning, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life!
