Global Dance-Fitness Brand Zumba Says 'Sweat Don't Starve' With "Less January More Zumba®" New Year's Campaign

A Resolution With Long-Term Results You Can Stick To

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - January 07, 2016) - The largest branded dance-fitness company in the world that has spread joy in 186 countries, is making a bold, unexpected statement this New Year's to banish the blah of January with the launch of "Less January More Zumba®." Through this global multimedia digital campaign, Zumba says GOODBYE to dull workouts, strict diets and short-lived resolution goals and HELLO to more fun, more dance and more Zumba® classes. The party doesn't have to end! #LetItMoveYou

Zumba tapped award-winning UK creative agency, FCB Inferno, to develop the campaign and bring to life the passionate and empowering influence of the Zumba® lifestyle. The digital assets showcase the dreary monotony of January vs. the warm, excitement of a Zumba class that 15 million people have adopted as their ultimate fitness solution.

"We know that Zumba is a powerful movement that has brought health and happiness to millions over the years," said Carolina Moraes, VP of Marketing for Zumba. "We also know that most people have a tough time sticking to resolutions that mean depriving themselves of things they enjoy and/or engaging in exercises that they find unpleasant; but it doesn't have to be that way. We want to break consumers from their resolution habits to show them Zumba is something fun that they'll stick to way past January."

"Less January More Zumba®" is a customizable and shareable campaign available in five languages for Zumba's global audience. It's led by the anthem video, which highlights the brand's positive energy and determination to enable people to let go and just have fun. Also included are seven 10-second videos to help instructors market their Zumba classes every day of the week and a custom GIF generator for both instructors and fans to join in on the fun.

A quick note about the Zumba® Mark

Zumba® was coined by us to identify our company as the source of fun and effective fitness programs combining easy-to-follow moves with invigorating world rhythms. When referring to our mark, we ask that you help us protect the thousands of instructors who teach Zumba® classes by following these guidelines:

  • Capitalize the letter "Z" in our Zumba® mark
  • Use the mark to describe our products or services (e.g., "the Zumba® program," "Zumba® class," "Zumba® instructor," or "Zumba® DVDs")
  • Use the ® symbol after the word Zumba®
  • Never use "Zumba" as a noun or verb (e.g., "You'll love to Zumba" or "They went to Zumba")
  • Never alter the mark (e.g., "Zumbamania" or "Zumbatastic")
