About ZUMBA®

Zumba Fitness® is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a "fitness-party" that is downright addictive. Since its inception in 2001, the Zumba® program has grown to become the world's largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 14 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 150 countries. 

When participants see a Zumba® class in action, they can't wait to give it a try. Zumba® classes in Victoria, BC feature exotic rhythms set to high-energy Latin and international beats. Before participants know it, they're getting fit and their energy levels are soaring! There's no other fitness class like a Zumba® Fitness-Party. It's easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating, often building a deep-rooted community among returning students.

Perfect For
Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on.

How It Works
We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.

Benefits
A total workout, combining all elements of fitness – cardio, muscle conditioning, balance and flexibility, boosted energy and a serious dose of awesome each time you leave class.

Testimonials:

The stars have aligned! I have finally found an exercise program that I love & is easy to stick to. The cliché that Zumba® has changed my life sounds crazy but it's absolutely true. It's the only thing that can unglue me off the couch & guess what? I actually look forward to class. Yup, couch potato me. I have tried it all before from gym memberships, to aerobics, to weights...boring. This is different - I love the rhythms of the Latin & Pop music...it just pulls you in & gets you moving. The class zips by and voila, you feel great. IT'S FUN! IT'S EVERYWHERE! IT'S ADDICTIVE! Just look around & I dare you not to find joy on the smiling faces.

I'd been meaning to try a Zumba® class when I was lucky to find Celine & the gang at WZ Latin Party Fitness when a friend dragged me along. I love the enthusiastic instructors; their mantra is: "There's no mistakes in Zumba®!" Low impact Zumba® Gold is a great way to start & find your groove. Then I tried Aqua Zumba® for a real work out without the sweat. Their drop-in punch card keeps it affordable so you don't loose out on missed classes. It's nice knowing that this club supports my local community with all kinds of charity events year long. The benefits to me? I've lost a dress size, my cholesterol levels have evened out to normal & I need fewer massage/chiro appointments, much fewer. The disadvantages? My husband is now a Zumba® widow - sorry honey!

Yours truly,

Ah Zumba®! What would life be without Zumba®? Dull, dull, dull! It's almost 2 years since a friend introduced me to the joy of Zumba®, and let me tell you, a week without Zumba® is not a happy week. My friend had been to about half a dozen classes, and asked me if I wanted to join her one Saturday morning. OMG! What a laugh! Talk about 2 left feet! I was completely a fish out of water, but you know what?? It was FUN!!! I laughed and sweated and laughed some more. Even though my friend only attended one more class, I have been getting up and heading out to Colwood almost every single Saturday to attend classes with the incredibly talented WZ Latin Party Fitness instructors. There's got to be a pretty darn good reason to miss a class! Best thing about Zumba®? It's fun! Zumba® is about having a great time while having a great workout. There are no wrong moves, and nobody cares what you look like, because they are too busy having fun.

Give Zumba® a try! You won't regret it!

Oh, and I don't have 2 left feet anymore...most of the time!
