Great news! Beto Perez is voting for SHAPE in the 2012 Webby People's Voice Awards, and he thinks you should too. (Click here to cast your ballot!) And really, who are we to argue with the creator of the worldwide dance party that is Zumba Fitness®?
We know that Zumba Fitness® means a lot to our readers. Many of you have written us to tell us how Zumba Fitness changed your lives, and still more have shared how falling in love with Zumba Fitness helped you overcome fears of dancing. They're not the only ones hooked, either—Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, and Jordin Sparks are just a few celebrity fans of the universally beloved fitness craze.
Here at SHAPE,we're firm believers that working out should be fun. Being healthy and getting in shape doesn't have to be about grinding in the gym all year long if you hate gyms; rather, it should be about finding a workout that makes you feel confident, excited, and happy to be exercising. That's why we're thrilled to have Beto's support—after all, Zumba Fitness® is an exhilarating, fun, calorie-burning dance party!
"My favorite thing about teaching Zumba is seeing everyone smiling, dancing, and 'exercising in disguise,'" Perez told SHAPE.com exclusively. "That's what Zumba Fitness® is all about!"
