VIDEO: Winter Fitness With Zumba Instructor Lucas Mthenjane

We spoke to Zumba Educational Specialist and Expresso Morning Show regular Lucas Mthenjane about staying fit this winter.


Zumba combines music with dance and fitness elements to create a fun and easy way for you to get fit.

Lucas suggested 4 additions to your at-home exercises, in order to make them into a more effective workout for your whole body.

Try them and feel the difference:

1. Five minutes of movement with music is always good for you.

2. Incorporate a chair for squats, supported lunges and side leg lifts.

3. For added resistance, use canned foods for bicep curls, shoulder presses and calf raises. Do 2 sets of 10 reps each.

4. Incorporate yoga stretches into your workout.
