Mass Workout at Plus! Zumba Fitness

Whenever, we talk about “Plus! Programme”, most of us will associate it with “NTUC” or “NTUC Card”, reason being, the card is issued by NTUC Link.  But it is actually more than what we thought, and not merely the perceived uncle-aunty grocery loyalty card brand. Plus! is Singapore’s award-winning and largest consumer loyalty programme that aims to help stretch the value of working families’ hard-earned dollars through LinkPoints and other benefits and offering 4 key types of rewards – Top Favourites, uShow, uBid and uExperience. More information can be found at http://plus.com.sg/rewards-main

Couple weeks back, Plus! held its first-ever mass participation challenge -- “Plus! Presents Zumba Fitness”, where members and their families enjoy a day of Zumba fitness at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. This largest Zumba Fitness event took place on Sunday, 23rd November 2014 from 8am to 1pm. With a turnout of 1,200 participants, “Plus! Presents Zumba  Fitness” exceeds the current Singapore Book of Records for the category of “Largest Zumba Dance” which has a total of 990 participants and I’m so proud to be part of this record breaking!


Most people would have prefer to stay in their bed for longer time on weekend morning, however, we see a bustling crowd in the heart of orchard in early in that Sunday morning. Beside the long queue, we see booths set up by Skechers, Ztudio Asia Zumba Wear, Coca-Cola Singapore, Health Promotion Board, Kenko Wellness, NTUC Membership Registration both & Plus! Card Booth, etc, offering star price of their products or sharing their range of service and activities.





Beside, there are also other fringe activities like bouncing castle, balloon sculpting, face and hand painting which caters to the junior.




 
It is a very interesting event where like-minded people get together for a great workout with Zumba, the participants range from young kids of less than 10 years old, to elderly of more than 60 years old! Cool, isn’t it?



 
Plus! plans to work with other partner organizations to organize similar events on a yearly basis and to promote its members health and well-being.   Mr. Zee Yoong Kang, CEO of the Health Promotion Board who is the Guest of Honour of the event, is very happy that Plus! is taking this step to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle among its members.  -- "Events like “Plus! Presents Zumba® Fitness” which gives Plus! members the platform to exercise together as a community is a good example of supporting Singaporeans’ journey towards good health and in creating a healthier Singapore.”.   Beside this record breaking mass Zumba, there is lucky draw too which 1 lucky winner walk away with 1 million linkpoints!!!
 
 
 
Had a great time with fellow bloggers and I certainly look forward to attending more of similar events!
