A Latin dance-inspired fitness program, Zumba features exotic rhythms set to high-energy and international beats. Zumba incorporates hip-hop, soca, samba, salsa, merengue, mambo, martial arts and some Bollywood and belly dance moves!!!
A fun and exhilarating workout, Zumba is a great way to socialise, meet like-minded people and improve your general wellbeing. Zumba has proven physical and mental benefits, decreasing your stress levels, whilst increasing your happiness, wellbeing and fitness.
There is no fee for taking part in the Zumbathon; all we ask is that you collect as much sponsorship as you can to support an excellent cause. We suggest you set yourself a minimum target, however anything you can collect will go towards improving the lives of people who experience mental ill health in Wales.

All participants will be asked to complete a brief Health Questionnaire on the day and will be provided with a Gofal t-shirt to wear during the event.
