Belly Dancing injects fun into fitness training, providing a gym workout for your muscles, while engaging in this exciting art form. The “shoulder shimmy” engages deltoids, biceps, and triceps. Hip drops work the obliques, glutes, calves, and quads; and the shifting of the body weight from one leg to the other leg provides safe increases in loading on the hip joint, knees, and ankles.

“Zumba,” is a Columbian expression that means “move fast and have fun.” Zumba combines Latin rhythms with cardiovascular exercise to create an aerobic routine that’s fun and easy to follow. Zumba uses a variety of styles in its routine, including merengue, salsa, mambo, rhumba, flamenco, and calypso. Zumba utilizes the principle of fitness interval training and resistance training, to maximize caloric output and total body toning. Zumba is already popular in Miami and other U.S. cities, but it’s new to New York, and Smart Workout is delighted to introduce it. (Learn more about Zumba at zumba.com)
