Zumba craze in Emery County


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Zumba craze has reached Emery County. Classes are taught at Fitness Evolution in Huntington and Samantha Johnson teaches on Tuesday and Thursday at 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. at the Emery County Recreation Center.

Zumba is an exhilarating experience. The Zumba program fuses hypnotic Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a one-of-a-kind fitness program. Zumba fanatics achieve long-term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exciting hour of calorie-burning, body-energizing, awe-inspiring movements meant to engage and captivate for life.

The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training are combined to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat with some Latin flavor and international zest.

The Zumba program has become nothing short of a revolution, spreading like wildfire, and positioning itself as the single most influential movement in the industry of fitness.

As of October, the Zumba program is being taught at more than 90,000 locations in 110 countries, has sold millions of DVDs, and has changed the lives of Zumba fanatics worldwide with an astonishing 10 million participants taking Zumba classes every week.

Celebrity fitness trainer, "Beto" Perez, stumbled upon the concept of Latin-inspired dance-fitness in his native Cali, Colombia in the mid-'90s.

One day, he walked into his aerobics class and realized he had forgotten his aerobics music. Thinking quickly, he grabbed whatever tapes he had in his backpack. Beto's tapes were comprised of songs he loved, the traditional Latin salsa and merengue music he listened to all his life. But it was a challenge to improvise a whole class on the spot using non-traditional aerobics music. Beto rose to the challenge and from this last-minute improvisation a revolutionary new concept in fitness was born. The class soon became the most popular class at his fitness facility.

The Zumba classes in Emery County are always filled to capacity but they welcome more to attend.
