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.

Bosu, which stands for “Both Sides Utilized”, will prove a class favorite for members who love challenging fitness moves. Here, instructors guide members to maintain overall body stability and body alignment through integrated movement. This programme is easily applicable to daily functional requirements because the human body’s everyday movements are in 3D – for instance, stabilizing one’s body on a stool while you are taking an object that is located above!

The Kettlebell is a traditional Russian training tool to develop full body conditioning as fitness. Those using a Kettlebell have their hands and wrists in neutral alignments, enabling greater endurance and longevity in the core lifts so that a much higher volume of exercises can be generated.

For whole body movement, ViPR would be the best option. Performing at the highest level with renewed sense of energy and movement possibility, ViPR training is a blend of lifting, shifting and twisting. If you are new to indoor cycling class, Celebrity Fitness C-Heart RateTM is the perfect place to start. Its simple choreography is very easy to follow with easy speed sections and low intensity hills set to popular fun music.

Inspired by the current craze for self-defense moves, the Celebrity Fitness HitBackTM class mixes traditional boxing, kick boxing, and Japanese-based martial arts to music, allowing members to punch, strike and kick with the best of them. “The 3D FUN Group Functional Fitness Studio is specially created for people from all walks of life. Some may like challenging fitness programmes, others may prefer a slow pace workout and yet others may even prefer to increase their muscle mass. Whatever it may be, we have it,” said Krishnan.

He added, “3D FUN Functional Group Fitness Studio is certainly a new fitness resolution where one gets to enjoy, learn some fitness moves and work their body to shape. In fact, other programmes like Celebrity Fitness Fast FitTM, Celebrity Fitness TRXTM fall under this group.”
