Fusing hypnotic musical rhythms and tantalising moves to create a dynamic workout system, Zumba® is designed to be fun and easy to do.

Like many great ideas, Zumba® was a happy accident. Founder Alberto “Beto” Perez was a fitness instructor in his native Cali, Colombia, in the mid-90s. He darted off to teach an aerobics class and forgot his traditional aerobics music, and improvised using his own mix of music from tapes he had in his backpack, the salsa and merengue music he’d grown up with, spontaneously creating a new kind of dance-fitness. A small shift of focus - letting the music move you rather than counting reps over the music. Zumba® was born.

The routines feature interval training sessions where fast and slow rhythms and resistance training combine to tone and sculpt your body while burning fat. Add some Latin flavour and international zest into the mix and you’ve got Zumba®.

Coining the concept of “fitness-party” and making fitness fun, Zumba® has spread like wild-fire and is taught at more than 40,000 locations, in 75 countries, has sold millions of DVDs and has an astonishing five-million students practicing Zumba on a weekly basis. There are classes across the whole of Norfolk. For details visit www.zumbauk.co.uk.


Judi Sheppard Missett, who turned her love of jazz dance into a worldwide dance exercise phenomenon, founded the Jazzercise dance fitness program in 1969. Burn up to 600 calories in one fun and powerfully effective 60-minute total body workout.

Every Jazzercise group fitness class combines dance-based cardio with strength training and stretching to sculpt, tone and lengthen muscles for maximum fat burn. Choreographed to today’s hottest music, Jazzercise is a fusion of jazz dance, resistance training, Pilates, yoga, and kickboxing.

Each workout blends dance aerobics with muscle toning and stretching movements, all choreographed to music. Every class includes a gentle warm-up, 30-minute cardio section, strength segment with weights and a stretch finale.

Benefits include increased cardiovascular endurance, strength, and flexibility, as well as an overall “feel good” factor.

The international franchise business hosts a network of 7,800 instructors teaching more than 32,000 classes weekly in 32 countries.

Classes are held across Norfolk. For details visit www.jazzercise.com.
