Zumbathon 2011


Are you ready to party yourself into shape?

That’s exactly what the Zumba® program is all about. It’s an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party that’s moving millions of people toward joy and health.

Zumba Fitness® is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a “fitness-party” that is downright addictive.

Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness has grown to become the world’s largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 10 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 90,000 locations across more than 110 countries.

Yesterday (February 12, 2011), I had the chance to join this new and unique kind of work-out. Since this is not yet being offered here in CDO, I immediately grabbed the opportunity. For 3 hours (5pm-8pm), we danced non-stop with out instructor from UK, Phoebe Jolly. With just 20 (more or less) participants (that includes the PE teachers in XU), we partied for fitness and wellness. We were enjoying so much that we were not able to keep track of the time. 3 hours was short. At the end, we were sweating very hard. It was all worth it. After all, it was just for free (well, at least for XU students and faculty like me).

Things we needed: ID for registration, contract, water, and dancing shoes. 🙂

The one in pink was the instructor. The rest were back-ups. Sorry for the blurry photo (I was dancing when I took this).

That’s me during the water break. Sweating. hihi.

My t-shirt costs P300.00 by the way.

Some of the participants at the end of the Zumbathon. Some left early.


Call me an “exercise freak” now. I know.

See you next year! 🙂

Let’s party! Zumba! Zumba!
