Fight Childhood Obesity This September

The stats are alarming: 17% of all US adolescents and teenagers are considered obese, and that number is on the rise. This is a critical time for action and for making a change.

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and Zumba® is getting involved in the fight. We’ve partnered with My Gym, a leading children’s fitness center, to host a Fit + Fun Party on September 10, 2016. Hundreds of My Gym locations across the country will offer a free day of fitness for all families, featuring Zumba Kids and Kids Jr. demos. You can expect a lot of fun and a whole lot of dancing!

Zumba Instructors, students, and fans all around the globe – no matter where you are in the world, this is your opportunity to get you and your kids involved in a cause that matters. Join us and help the next generation live a healthier and happier future. Even dancing for just 30 minutes a day can make a huge difference in your children’s lives, so what are you waiting for? Take a look below at how these Zumba kids like to stay active and healthy.
