Once in a while, it’s always nice to force yourself to do something you don’t think you’d otherwise be doing..? I don’t think dancing Zumba has once ever crossed my mind in my entire life, but when I got approached to attend the Zumba Fitness event, presented by Plus!, I gave a delightful “yes”!
It was a pity that I caught the flu bug just a day before the event so I was feeling all groggy and tired but nonetheless, still a wonderful experience to be in the midst of families and friends right in the heart of Orchard Road at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza, on a Sunday morning.
Truly, it was a promising turn out of more than 1200 people, including the elderly and kids as young as 3 years of age. With that numbers, “Plus! Presents Zumba® Fitness” exceeded the current Singapore Book of Records for the category of “Largest Zumba Dance”, beating the 990 participants number. I spotted familiar brands such as Skechers, but I never knew that Plus! had Etude House, Zalora and Lazada in the programme as well!
Plus! aims to extend its offering to members by presenting new lifestyle events to support an active lifestyle, encouraging its 1.6 million members to stay healthy (and happy)!
It was also my honour to meet Mr. Tony Tan, CEO of NTUC Link that runs the Plus! Programme and Zee Yoong Kang, CEO of the Health Promotion Board who was the Guest of Honour of the event, that morning.
Sundays are my sleep in days, but I guess waking up early for this was pretty rewarding!
