Zumba is one of the hottest ways for women (men also, but mostly women) of all ages to get in shape. It originated from a mix of salsa and merengue music, but has now branched out to techno/hip-hop music for the younger American dancers. It enables anyone of any body shape or size to dance. You can start at a beginner level, like the original Zumba Class, and move up to the more advanced classes, like Tabata and Piloxing. In Jasper, Zumba classes can be taken at many places almost every night. Solid Image and Inspire Fitness are the most popular places to take Zumba for about $5 a class. If you want to lose weight without the hassle of paying overly priced gym memberships, but also have fun, Zumba is for you!
