Zumba Fitness News: Zumba no longer just exercise, it’s big business

Zumba no longer just exercise, it’s big business

MIAMI (Reuters) – Alberto Perez started out as a street performer and then an aerobics teacher in Colombia, making extra cash on the side teaching the wives of businessmen how to dance in nightclubs in his hometown, Cali.

Today, he stands at the center of the Zumba exercise craze, having helped transform Zumba Fitness, a private company, into a rapidly growing fitness empire with heavyweight investor backing.

“I’m not a businessman, but I knew this had the potential to be something special,” said Perez, who along with two Colombian associates founded the Miami-based company.

Zumba, a Latin dance-inspired aerobic workout, has exploded from a Miami gym phenomenon to infomercial and DVD smash hit into a global craze with some 12 million people taking classes every week in at least 125 countries. Zumba Fitness now boasts being the largest branded fitness program in the world.

Started on a shoestring budget in a Miami garage nearly 11 years ago, Zumba Fitness now has more than 200 employees, and a pair of New York investment firms are betting the craze has staying power.

What began as a company focused on fitness has evolved into a lifestyle and entertainment brand combining e-commerce, apparel and music, and a sought-after outlet for stars like hip-hop artists Pitbull and Wyclef Jean and reggaeton singer Don Omar who have turned to Zumba to promote their music.

Sunset by the Bay!

Sunset by the Bay in Singapore!

Thank you, thank you to all of the amazing Zumba friends, newbies, kids, ZINs, and instructors who joined the HUGE Sunset by the Bay Zumba Fitness Master Class this past weekend in Singapore!  It was such an incredible experience!

The rain, thunder and lightening the night before made for a beautiful afternoon on the Waterfall Terrance of the Marina Mandarin Hotel in Singapore.  And can you ask for a better view of the city?  With the sun setting and the wind keeping us cool, we danced for 2 hours of non-stop Latin fun!

The energy, love and enthusiasm from all of you was infectious!  Thank you for being an incredible, supportive and welcoming Zumba family!  Your love and passion warmed my heart.  <3
