Zumba is a dance fitness program that was created by dancer and choreographer Alberto "Beto" Perez in Colombia during the 1990's. One day, he arrived at his studio to teach his class and realised he had forgotten his aerobics music. His only option was to grab whatever music he had in his car, which happened to be traditional latin salsa and meringue! Beto improvised the whole class with salsa, flamenco and samba moves and his clients loved it... Zumba Fitness was born!
As Zumba is fast becoming the latest fitness craze in the UK, Sweaty Betty Kingston invited local Zumba instructor Linda Fleming-Gale to host a free outdoor class for our customers! Along with her two daughters (who are also Zumba Instructors) and her friend and famed choreographer and Zumba Instructer Cristian Valle, they had the evening shoppers of Kingston shaking their hips and doing the salsa like experts!

For more information on your nearest Zumba class by Linda you can contact her directly at lindafleminggale@hotmail.com or drop into the Kingston store.

Vikki on ZUMBA-tastic!!

We have been going to Linda's classes which are on Mondays and Tuesdays at the Cobham Village Hall, Lushington Drive in Cobham -KT at 1.30 until 2.15 and I have to say - we are having the best time with the class. Not only are we getting fit (and you see rapid changes in your body shape) but we've never laughed and had so much fun getting fit before in our lives. Come along and join the Zumba party.
