Heather Diodati of Whimsies Personalized Cartoons Launches Zumba avec/with Heather, a Zumba® Fitness Party

Saint-Anicet, new home of Whimsies Personalized Cartoons, is introduced to the Latin-dance inspired phenomenon that is sweeping the world into fitness.

Saint-Anicet, Canada, August 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Zumba avec/with Heather is blending party fun with fitness by launching Zumba® classes.

Heather Diodati, certified Zumba Fitness instructor and owner of Whimsies Personalized Cartoons, introduced Zumba Fitness on Saturday, July 19th 2008 to the attendees of Saint-Anicet’s annual “Festival du Mais” with a half hour demonstration of Latin rhythm styles, in the Zumba Fitness format, such as salsa, merengue, cha cha, belly dancing and finishing with a fun salsa/hip hop.

Also, a contest was held to win a Zumba t-shirt imprinted with the winner’s first name. Congratulations to the winner, Mrs. Louise Contant of Laval, who attended the festival and is a weekend regular at one of the local campgrounds.

Diane Miron of Chateauguay said, “It’s so much fun, it’s a great workout and you don’t even realize how hard you’re working.”

Heather Diodati said she wanted to bring something new to the area. “No one was holding Zumba Fitness classes here, and where they were held they were very popular.” “You move your body to the music,” Diodati said “and the music is so exciting and infectious it creates a fun atmosphere. It’s dancing, it’s aerobics and it’s a great workout; you don’t need to even know how to dance at all and the moves are very easy to learn.”

Zumba eliminates the “work” from “working out” by combining amazing, irresistible Latin and international music with dynamic, yet simple exercise moves, using its unique interval training format to help participants get fit in a party-like environment. Zumba combines dance and fitness moves for cardiovascular health, toning and strength building.
