"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.com
Is your toddler carrying a little too much junk in the trunk? Does she need a workout with a little more oomph to help her work off all those chicken nuggets you've been feeding her? Is she tired of using your worn out S Factor DVDs? Is reading her Cosmo at bedtime, instead of Goodnight, Moon, just not doing enough to start the long journey toward body dysmorphia?
