Fancy trying Zumba for free?


A free Zumba session is being held at Westgate Leisure Chichester as part of the British Heart Foundation's Healthy Heart Month. The event is on Friday 21 February from 1.30-2.15pm.

Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance and fitness programme that is exhilarating, effective and easy-to-follow. It's a great way to keep fit and get your heart pumping, keeping it healthy.

The free session is hosted by the Chichester Wellbeing Team. According to the team, Zumba can:

· reduce your risk of coronary heart disease;

· help keep your heart healthy and to manage your weight;

· help you sleep better and reduce stress;

· reduce blood pressure and your risk of diabetes; and

· introduce you to new people and friends.

The team is asking everyone who comes along to wear some red clothing to promote Healthy Heart Month.

Councillor Eileen Lintill, Chichester District Council's Cabinet Member for Wellbeing and Community Services, says: "Zumba is a great way of keeping fit while having fun and it is one of our most popular classes at Westgate. As it is half term we're inviting parents to bring their children along with them. So if you fancy giving it go, or you're a Zumba pro, then come along and join in the fun in aid of British Heart Foundation's Healthy Heart Month."
