5 Things You Might Not Know About This HIIT Workout

Have you heard the buzz about STRONG by Zumba®? Want to learn more? Here are five things you may not know about everyone’s new favorite high intensity interval training (HIIT) class!

It’s intense… and it’s not a dance class!

Classes are made up of heart-pumping music and moves, broken down into four quadrants to help you warm up, get a full body workout, build strength, and cool down. There’s a huge body of research proving that HIIT exercise is highly effective in improving your cardiovascular system and building muscle.

The music motivates you by design.

We’ve revolutionized the way moves and music work together, by using research to reverse-engineer the songs on our playlists. In other words, we built songs to mirror exercises that give you the best possible workout.

Your favorite artists are into it.

The hottest names in hip hop, EDM, and pop music are making songs exclusively for STRONG by Zumba®. Timbaland, Krewella, and others are excited to bring their sounds to more people while motivating them to get a great workout.

You don’t need any equipment.

STRONG by Zumba® relies on bodyweight exercises, so you won’t need to bring anything or worry about grabbing equipment at the gym. Let us take care of the music and the moves – just bring your energy!

People are talking!

Self magazine said STRONG by Zumba® makes you “burpee when the bass drops,” and celebrities are getting in on the action too! Check out Mario Lopez getting in on the action!
