Zumba Phuket

The Healthiest Social Club in the World

For those who arch an enquiring eyebrow when the word ‘Zumba’ is mentioned it’s quite a enlightening thought to learn that worldwide approximately 14 million people take weekly Zumba classes in over 140,000 locations across more than 150 countries, and those figures are rising.

If you’re already a Zumba enthusiast then take heart as you can join in on the action most days of the week here in Phuket.

If you’re not yet one, then here’s a brief explanation:

Essentially, Zumba is the healthiest social club in the world and it’s so popular and constantly growing because everyone can join in. In a typical Zumba class energetic music is played and an instructor leads the class in dance-like aerobic exercises. The exercises include musical styles such as cumbia, salsa, merengue, mambo, flamenco, soca, belly dancing, hip hop and tango. Slow rhythms can also be used to improve resistance training. There are different levels of Zumba that target the elderly, those who want a toned body, aqua-zumba, zumbatonic – geared towards children – and a host of other options.

The business model of Zumba won ‘Business of the Year’ award at the popular business website inc.com and according to a one-time MTV executive, “It’s hotter than MTV at its beginning”.

Here on the island Kaye Smith manages Zumba Phuket and coordinates other Zumba instructors on her website. Not only that, if Zumba enthusiasts come on holiday she can steer them to Zumba classes and gatherings. “It’s all about having fun but the fun doesn’t stop at the end of the class,” she says, “People often go out together afterwards.” Kaye aims to organise beach classes and to build up a greater Zumba community here.

Zumba truly is a great leveler for people of all ages and fitness levels and varying degrees of health. It’s a great alternative to lifting weights and is as much fun as the Hash House Harriers – only minus the booze.
