Be part of Boomerang, South India's big zumba party
It’s the time and age to show off your fitness levels. Whether it is a selfie of a ‘sweat that shines’ face post a workout, or a video of dumbbell chest presses, any-thing that makes one appear fit and active has been trending. This weekend it’s time to put your fitness to the test at Boomerang, India’s largest zumba fitness concert — a 90-minute zumba session.
Leading the session will be Shwetambari Shetty, zumba education specialist master trainer India and co-founder, The Tribe Fitness Club. “We had organised Boomerang earlier this year in Mumbai and it turned out to be a huge hit, with more than 1,600 participants turning up. The reason to bring it to Bengaluru is to bring about a change in people’s thinking about fitness. Instead of the usual partying, opt for a zumba party minus the alcohol and get fit," says Shwetambari.
Shake a leg
The event is touted to be the biggest fitness concert in South India. With an expected turnout of more than 1,000 participants, Shwetambari says, the session is planned in such a way that anyone can participate in it. Even those who have been couch potatoes can kick-start their fitness regimen at this event. “Most of the participants are likely to be zumba enthusiasts, but keeping in mind first-timers, we have planned a mix of high and low-intensity rounds. We will also have about 80 zumba instructors all over the venue monitoring the crowd to ensure all the participants are under their trained eyes,” she explains.
The music will be a mix of Latin tunes and commercial hits. After the main event, there’s a big surprise for the participants. They could be part of a music video that will be shot at the venue, in association with Sony Music. “It’s voluntary. Those who want to be part of the music video can join the party after the 90-minute session. It’s a popular song that we will be dancing to,” says Shwetambari. There will be several stalls selling fitness products, nutrition supplements and energy drinks at the venue.
