Zumba is a modern direction of fitness, which comes somewhere at the junction of strength training and dance. This kind of training has become popular thanks to such famous fans as Madonna, Shakira and Hugh Jackman. And Michelle Obama even conducted master classes for children in this area. Now about 15 million people in different countries of the world are engaged in Zumba. So welcome to Zumba!

How does the Zumba session go?

The training is built on simple movements with elements of Latin, hip-hop and African dance. The session begins with a short warm-up.

The main part of the session is built on dance tracks of different intensity, with different tempo and style. Each track in Zumba implies its own unique choreography. But since Zumba shares movements with strength training, it will not take much effort even for a non- dancing person to learn them. After a few sessions you will feel absolutely confident.

The training ends with a hitch and a stretch.
