KUALA LUMPUR – Zumba, the latest craze in fitness, not only promotes good health, but it is also a fun and entertaining way to exercise.
Introduced by Colombian dancer and choreographer, Alberto â€œBetoâ€ Perez, Zumba involves dance and aerobics with a mix of Mexican dance, salsa, cha cha and various kinds of music to move to.
â€œNowadays, most people want to exercise, however the motivation is not there. Therefore, with activities such as Zumba, it is not only fun and entertaining, it also helps to boost adrenaline,â€ said Dzullidain Razali, director and master trainer for D Adza Fitness to Bernamaâ€™s Lifestyle and Youth recently.
Zumba focuses on fitness and burning the calories and it incorporates hip-hop, samba, salsa, mambo, and merengue, all in one session.
When asked why D Adza Fitness chooses to promote Zumba, Dzullidain said: â€œZumba is unique because there is no level of experience necessary and anyone whether young or old can do it. It is one way to promote good health.â€
Dzullidain also added that Zumba is one of their approaches to raise awareness of the importance of good health across Malaysia. D Adza Fitness has been operating for a year and it has organised six events including Fit Fest 2014 held at Ampang Jaya Multipurpose Hall recently.
Fit Fest 2014 welcomed more than 50 enthusiasts to participate in the activities that have been lined-up for them such as Fitness Bootcamp, Zumba, K-pop fitness, and diet cooking demo.
In the future, D Adza Fitness hopes to collaborate with the Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia to open up their own gymnasium and fitness studio and organise a prestigious event listed in the Malaysian Book of Records.
â€œWe even plan to organise Zumba events such as Zumba Kids, Zumba Gold, or Zumba Aqua, and hope to have the highest ranking Zumba instructor titled Zest,â€ added Dzullidain. – Bernama
