Narrator: "Dancing is exercise. But exercise can also be dancing. And the latest exercise craze is Zumba." Elisa Townsend: "Zumba is a fitness workout program based on latin steps that are easy to follow ..." Narrator: "Elisa Townsend teaches Zumba Gold. A specialized offshoot of regular Zumba that focuses on older adults." "The word Zumba originates from an african dialect, and it means to move swiftly with grace. At the chore of Zumba is the music." E.T: "Samba, mambo, cha cha, salsa, merengue, all sorts of (rhythms), flamenco, belly dance, and not only latin, but also Hip Hop and Reggaeton" "all of that with the Zumba flavor, made it to a way that you can have fun and burn calories in an optimized way that we call interval training." "If you vary the intensity your body will most likely improve and optimize the caloric output, and you are going to be burning more calories." Dixie Emmons: "We definitely get a good workout and Elisa transit, and that is why we appreciate her so much b/c she tells us at the start of the class if that is to strenuous for you, you know, you can tone down and do this step, you know, you don't have to keep up with the fast pace if you are not able to but each week she encourages us to do a little bit more. So, it's definitely a good workout." Robbie Greer: "I've done exercise all of my life, but this is the most fun thing I've ever done in exercise. You are working out but you don't realize you are working out." "Fun is the key motivator for Zumba participants. Along with what Elisa calls your "Zumba Family". "It improves them not only in terms of physical fitness but also in terms of self-acceptance, self-confidence, self-esteem." "It brings cultures and people together in an environment that is very inclusive. There, they make a lot of friendships, they feel (like) a support group, they feel like a family". Robbie Greer: "I encourage anybody that wants to get moving this is a good place to (be), it's a good thing to do." (The end - The Best Times Show logo)
