What is the most fun way of combining cardiovascular workout with rhythmic dance and pop music? Ask Councilor Charisse and she will respond in two words - Zhumba Caravan!
This aerobic fitness program in Mandaluyong City is the brainchild of Miss Charisse. Inspired by the idea of Columbian choreographer, Alberto "Beto" Perez, who merged the South American music dance and cardio intervals with resistance training, she conceived this project to bring it to various communities in the Tiger City.
Leading by example, this fit and trim legislator visits a Barangay every Saturday morning and dance with its residents. Together, they all benefit by toning their muscles and losing their excess cellulite, while enjoying the vigorous moves of the world’s latest pop craze.
When asked about the objective of Zumba Caravan, Miss Abalos vivaciously replied, “This project aims to bring and increase awareness on health and wellness on to the different communities and barangays here in Mandaluyong.” While the intention is to educate the people regarding the positive effects of exercise on their general physical condition, she also added that this project “serves as an avenue where city residents can mingle and have fun together while dancing their way towards a healthy lifestyle.”
With easy-to-follow dance routines, the participants rise above the physical challenge of exercises. Within an hour of Zumba session, they work out longer, burn calories faster, and produce lots of endorphins. In no time, they achieve their body sculpting goals and end up as happier citizens.
So the next time you go to any public gym in Mandaluyong, and you see a lot of energetic people sweating out from aerobic exercises, and moving their bodies with the Latin beat, then you better join them and experience the Zumba fever!
