Aqua Zumba at Celebrity Fitness Malaysia
Imagine partying yourself into shape with an invigorating low-impact aquatic exercise. Accompanying you, are a great bunch of people, grooving to an exotic rhythm set to high-energy Latin and international beats with a great instructor taking the lead. With a little “boogie” here and some “woogie” there, you burn up to 400 calories-in just one class! This is exactly what describes Aqua Zumba.
Proudly introduced by Celebrity Fitness Malaysia, the FIRST Aqua Zumba launch in Asia is designed to improve the body and health in general. By integrating the zumba dance class with traditional aqua fitness disciplines, Aqua Zumba blends it all together into a safe, challenging, water-based workout.
Perfect for cardio-conditioning and body toning, this class is a great workout for both beginners and Zumba fitness enthusiasts alike because it engages most of the core muscles, including arms and legs. As the moves are performed at a slower pace, one can still achieve a great workout due to the viscosity of the water. This will definitely be a perfect class for those who have joint or back problems.
“People are always looking for new and exciting classes to boost their fitness routines. This prompted Celebrity Fitness to introduce something different to our members. This time around, we are proud to introduce the first Aqua Zumba launch in Asia and this class is only available in Celebrity Fitness MidValley,” said Kris Malhotra, Country Group Fitness Manager of Celebrity Fitness Malaysia.
Aqua Zumba Master Trainer, Maria Teresa Stone, made a special appearance during the launch in Celebrity Fitness, MidValley and showcased a few Aqua Zumba steps with a group of Celebrity Fitness instructors.
“I am very happy that Celebrity Fitness Malaysia has taken the first step to introduce Aqua Zumba and I believe Malaysians will be very excited to join this class because this will be a whole new dancing experience that sets your energy soaring like never before,” said Maria Teresa Stone.
Having pursued her passion for dance and fitness at a very young age, Maria Teresa Stone taught her first group fitness class in 1996. Being a fitness instructor and a group fitness manager for several years, her passion in Zumba is always thriving. In year 2007, Maria became a Zumba Education Specialist (Master Trainer) and launched a few Zumba programs in New Zealand and Australia.
Kris added, “Aqua Zumba is certainly a new fitness twist to both fitness novices and hardcore gym goers. Many will be surprised that working out in the water can be so much fun.” Members of Celebrity Fitness have the privilege to join Aqua Zumba for free, classes are available at Celebrity Fitness Mid Valley starting July 2013.
