Staying in shape doesn’t have to be all work and no play! The latest craze sweeping the nation (including your favorite South Carolina gym) is Zumba. And it’s as fun to perform as it sounds.

Zumba® is an aerobic exercise set that blends Latin dance moves with invigorating music—from salsa to reggae to hip-hop. There’s even some belly-dancing thrown in, so you can feel sexy while toning your core. It’s a high-energy workout that effectively targets your total body. And it’s not just about staying active and burning calories — it’s a self-described dance-fitness party.

The “party” comes into play when you mix dancing with socializing and having fun at the gym. Participants quickly become addicted to the fun form of fitness, and those who come back frequently to classes quickly become a close-knit community. Once you shake your stuff with fellow Greenville gym members, they’re simply going to feel more like friends. Sometimes you come to the gym to focus and get down to serious business. But when you come to Zumba classes, it’s all about enjoying yourself and letting loose.

At Pivotal Fitness’ Greenville health club, we’re offering trainer-led Zumba classes throughout the month of March. Check the latest schedule to learn when classes take place and which of your favorite instructors is leading them. Trust us: once, you’ve tried it once, you won’t want to miss a single session.
