Watsons Malaysia’s Move Your Body is back this year with Zumba, a Latin-inspired dance fitness programme.

Last year, the health and beauty retailer took a pledge to encourage Malaysians to exercise, have the right health regime and ultimately lead healthier lives.

For the second edition of Move Your Body, Watsons Malaysia Marketing head Danny Hoh said Zumba was chosen because it is a fun fusion of dance moves that provide a total body workout, burns a high number of calories, boosts metabolism and improves cardiovascular health.

“We believe there is beauty in getting fit and healthy and call on Malaysians to join our efforts to raise awareness on the importance of having an active lifestyle,” said Hoh.

Watsons Malaysia kick-started the campaign with its Move Your Body – Zumba music video, featuring some popular radio announcers including Jack Lim and Jeff Chin.

“We would like the nation to join me and Jeff to dance the Move Your Body - Zumba with us at Padang Kota Lama, Penang on June 7.

“It would be a fun-filled carnival with hot air balloons, games, stilt-walkers, clowns, freebies and other exciting activities,” promised Lim.

Also present were Watsons Malaysia Trading general manager Caryn Loh, Zumba Fitness representative Deno Au and Paradigm Mall general manager Vincent Chong as well as event sponsors.

Several activities have been planned to lead up to the Zumba party including a Zumba dance tutorial by Au, a showcase of popular Zumba songs such as Watsons’ Move Your Body, health and fitness regimes by radio announcers and Zumba Fitness instructors, and exciting merchandise.

Watsons Malaysia is also running an InstaVideo contest where contestants can submit their health and fitness regime to win exciting prizes and Move Your Body – Zumba event tickets.
