We recently told you that world famous, Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Steve Aoki teamed up with STRONG by Zumba® to create music exclusively for the program. The program’s Lead Master Trainer Ai Lee Syarief first created an intense routine and then sent it over to Steve Aoki to come up with music that would match the moves. The result? A push-your-limits routine chock full of squats, jumps, and planks all perfectly synced to ‘Champion’, Aoki’s concoction of iconic, energetic beats.
To celebrate the launch of ‘Champion’, Steve Aoki hosted an event in LA to give attendees a glimpse into the process behind producing the exclusive track, followed by a STRONG by Zumba class. Attendees included notable celebrities and fitness influencers, such as Mario Lopez, Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte, Jeanette Jenkins, Michelle Lewin, and Brittne Babe.
Of making ‘Champion’, Aoki said, “I spent so much time making this song and I’m really excited to see other people working out to my music, specifically to this workout. This is the first time it’s ever been done. It was a big challenge for me and I’m very proud of my final product.”
