It’s no secret that I’m completely obsessed with Zumba. I discovered the class at Evolusion Fitness in Miller Place last year and thanks to my smoking hot instructor Kristi Tramposch (who got me from the back of the class to the front, and totally hooked!) I’ve been torching calories ever since. It’s a fun and fabulous way to stay fit and now, there’s a brand new reason to shakey shakey: the Great Calorie Drive.
With this new program, instead of just burning calories a few times a week, I’m actually donating them. Zumba Fitness is now working with Feeding America—the largest U.S. hunger-relief organization—and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), the largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger.
With hunger affecting one in six people in the United States and 870 million people worldwide, Zumba is urging everyone to “Give the world a reason to dance” by attending Zumba classes and donating the calories burned to Feeding America and WFP. It such a wonderful way to look good and feel good at the same time.
How it works:
- Download the Zumba Fitness Mobile App on smartphones (iOS and Android-friendly; free of charge from the App Store™ or Google Play)
- Check in to the nearest Zumba class (once downloaded, the app will direct consumers to the nearest Zumba class); share on social media: #ZumbaGCD
- Shake and dance in Zumba class and burn an average of 750 calories
- Calories will automatically be donated to Feeding America and WFP by Zumba Fitness
