Gangnam Style Choreography – Simplified for Zumba Fitness Class

Posted in Dance, Exercise, Fitness, Workout, Zumba, Zumba Videos tagged , , , , , , , at 9:50 PM by lanaholt

No copyright infringement intended. I do not own the rights to this song.

I’m sharing my version of the Gangnam Style PSY choreography with my students that would like to practice it at home. I do not make any money from these videos. I only share them because it makes my students happy.

I’m sharing some aerobic dance choreography for my students, for me, so I don’t forget it, and for anyone that wants some ideas. This is just for fun. Yes, I mess up and space out sometime and I look like a crazy person. I simplified this choreography. Please LIKE my FAN page (http://facebook.com/coachlana), where I’m going to keep uploading videos like this. I would really appreciate it.

What is Zumba Toning? A Great Cardio Option.

Posted in Exercise, Fitness, Health, Healthy Habits, Healthy Living, Zumba, Zumba Toning at 5:02 PM by lanaholt


Zumba Toning takes the original Zumba dance-fitness class to the next level utilizing innovative muscle training and the addition of light weight toning sticks or dumbbells. Created to emphasize muscle work along with rhythms, this combination of cardio and dynamic resistive exercises is an effective use of progressive light weight training to improve overall performance. This Latin-inspired dance ‘n tone program also includes, for the first time, combination rhythms within the same songs which adds to the fun and flavor: Latin Disco, Reggaeton-Cumbia, Conga Hip-Hop, Merengue Hip-Hop, Reggaeton-Belly Dance, Techno and Salsa. This program is assured to provide the participant with a safe and effective, re-defining total body workout! Zumba Toning creates the same party atmosphere as every other Zumba program because the rhythm of the dance is the passion and foundation which keeps the participant engaged and coming back. Zumba Toning is fun, different, challenging and effective and provides, for the participant, a new avenue to weighted activity and calorie burn.
