Get Healthy, Get Fit in 2009 and help a good cause

Posted on: January 9, 2009

Many have made New Year’s resolutions to get healthy and fit in 2009. This is no simple task but some have figured out a way to combine their activism with their workout. Fitness fundraisers have a long history in the form of walk-a-thons, charity marathons and dance-a-thons. Fitness instructors have began to use their talents to bring in money for non-for- profit organizations. Group exercise classes such as yoga and the latest fitness craze Zumba Fitness have also taken to this trend. This allows group exercise enthusiasts participate in a special exercise class that is generally longer in length than their usual class. Participants also pay an entry fee or donation that goes to the charity or cause. Participants may also get monetary pledges towards their participation in the fitness fundraiser. The result is a unique opportunity that allows participants to burn calories while helping a good cause. One of the latest fitness crazes is Zumba Fitness (www.zumba.com)

Zumba fuses hypnotic musical rhythms and tantalizing moves to
create a dynamic workout system designed to be FUN and EASY TO DO!
The Zumba Fitness goal is simple: “We want people to want to work out, to love working out, to get hooked “. By integrating Zumba into everyday life individuals may achieve long term benefits while experiencing an absolute blast in one exhilarating hour of caloric burning, heart racing, muscle pumping, body energizing movements meant to engage and captivate for life!
Zumba Fitness is based in Latin dance and includes salsa, merengue, reggae ton, cumbia, belly dance, chacha and hip hop dancing.
