Zumba fever heats up
The latest fitness craze uses Latin-inspired dance moves for a fun (really!) and functional class that'll make you shake what yo' mamma gave you.
Latin music pulses from the stereo as 40 women jump, shimmy and sway to the beat.
It's not a dance club. This is a regular morning exercise class at the YMCA in Alpharetta, Georgia. It's called Zumba.
Part dance, part aerobics, Zumba is an hourlong routine that works almost every muscle in the body.
"It is dance fitness," explained Stephanie Maxim, one of two class instructors. "We teach them moves that you can see on 'Dancing with the Stars': salsa, mambo, cha-cha, and we put it into a group fitness format."
