Zumba has hit the entire world with its fun Latin-infused dance moves.

Now, the groove is not just on the dance floor. This quirky workout is also rocking the swimming pool.

This new twist combines regular Zumba with aqua fitness, perfect for those looking for an extraordinary workout this rainy season.

Aqua Zumba may look like an ordinary Zumba class, but dancing against the force of water adds a lot of challenge to anyone's workout. You would be able to feel the resistance in every move, which makes Aqua Zumba an effective way to shape up this season.

Underwater arm and leg movements are good for your joints and bones. It decreases impact plus it relieves your body every time you move. Instructor Nathalia Chan said that this workout can also be very relaxing, making it perfect for those suffering from insomnia.

For those who are afraid of showing their dance moves, Aqua Zumba has a slower tempo than Zumba, plus most of the steps are underwater. So no worries, folks! You could easily hide your grind and have a good time.

The best part about this class is that upbeat music is played all throughout which makes your one-hour cardio a fast and fun fat-burning workout.

Aqua Zumba classes are open for all ages, sizes and genders, and are offered in three venues nationwide.

Those living in Metro Manila can join the pool party at Planet Infinity, Mother Ignacia Street, Quezon City.

For only P250 a session or P800 for one month, you could join the party.
