Ditch the workout. Join the party!
An exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that blends red-hot international music which are downright addictive. It’s been a while but Zumba has finally arrived manila. Although often it has been mistaken as a woman’s class, Zumba was originated, conceptualized and programmed by a man.

The “Fitness-Party” sets a goal to let the music move you instead of counting repetitions over the music. Classes are available in certain areas in the metro. Don’t be fooled by non-certified Zumba Instructors.
