"It's a fantastic exercise because you do not need more than your own body, a prepared instructor and music. In one hour you do a very complete workout. It is perfect for people who have little time, and can practice all equally, regardless of age, but they are without injuries or impediments, of course", says Nicolás Aimeale, master trainer in Argentina and throughout Latin America.
According to the official website of STRONG by Zumba, the key to training is to use accelerated rhythms such as EDM, Hip-Hop and fusion genres such as Moombahton to ensure that students, instead of focusing on reps, focus 100% on their movements. In order to have exclusive themes and create a unique effect in class, they have partnered with some of the best music producers such as Timbaland and Steve Aoki.

In an hour of class burn between 700 and 800 calories approximately while toning arms, legs, ab muscles, and glutes.
"The digital support of this platform is important, because the brand from its page www.strongbyzumba.com spreads monthly the contents so that the trained instructors have the material of the new series and the music that the engineers are creating, besides having a registration of classes and schedules throughout the region, "says Caro Sukis, an Argentine instructor of the discipline and influencer in the world of fitness.
