MUMBAI— Bipasha Basu has a new fitness secret: she has been training in a popular dance-based fitness workout that has transformed millions of lives and made exercise fun.
Zumba Fitness, the global dance-fitness movement with a following of 15 million people in 186 countries, is attracting famous dancers and celebrities who have made the workout a part of their everyday lifestyle. The program is known as ‘exercise in disguise.’
“I simply love the program!” said Basu. “I was first attracted to it when I heard its contagious music and rhythms and decided to take a class with renowned Zumba master trainer Sucheta Pal – I was hooked! Not only is it fun but you can burn up to 1000 calories in a single session. I have never felt this passionate about fitness. It’s all about feeling the music, enjoying the moves and allowing it to inspire you to be fitter and healthier. In fact, it is not about physically transforming, the workout actually makes you smile – it’s a great emotional boost to my day, and any weight loss is an added bonus.”
Basu has posted a new video grooving to some original Zumba beats; Pal commented that Basu would even be an amazing Zumba instructor!
The 60-minute calorie-torching workout is a favorite among a wide range of international celebrities such as Pitbull and Daddy Yankee, who have created exclusive music that can only be heard in a Zumba class.
