A Heart-Pumping New Trend

February 11, 2009

If you’re tired of being in the dance studio and want a break from your traditional workout at the barre, Zumba is the way to go! Heat up your body and soul with this Latin-inspired fitness craze popping up from LA to NYC. Part aerobics, part Latin dance, every Zumba class is filled with the fiery styles of salsa, merengua, cha-cha, and reggaeton that are sure to tone and sculpt your body. Plus, February is American Heart Month, and what better way to pump up your heart health (and give yourself some lovin’) than with an hour of just-for-fun dance. A few Zumba destinations:
