Zumba is a simple, fun, and sweaty dance-based exercise. It was born in the 1990s when Colombian fitness instructor Beto Perez forgot his usual aerobics music at home. He had to solve the situation by using his own collection of Latin American music.

That mistake turned into a success. Combining salsa, samba, merengue, and other Latin American rhythms with aerobics into a new kind of dance fitness became a smash hit with his students.

In other words, it was a success, and the energetic mix of dance and fitness has since taken the world by storm. Gyms have been transformed into dance parties, and Zumba remains a super popular form of exercise that combines fun and health in an unbeatable way.
