Fitness Spotlight: All About Zumba®

Guests who visit us at Sunscape Resorts & Spas have the opportunity to take part in a number of fitness classes including yoga, water aerobics and many others. However, the newest fitness craze that our guests just can’t seem to get enough of is Zumba®. This fun-filled dance-type class is just what guests need to get their day started.

But if you’re like most of us, you’re probably wondering how Zumba® became so popular. Well, here’s a little bit more about it.

Zumba Fitness® is a Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a dance exercise that is very addictive. It first surfaced in 2001 and today has become the world’s largest and most popular dance-fitness program. Each week, more than 12 million people take Zumba® classes in over 110,000 locations across more than 125 countries.

That sure is a lot of Zumba®! If you’re visiting us soon, don’t miss the opportunity to try this class by the pool with one of our instructors!

Make it at Home: Fish Tacos

Our guests at Sunscape Resorts & Spas rave about our fish tacos. That’s why we wanted to share this quick recipe with you so you can make this yummy dish at home. We guarantee they’ll be a crowd pleaser!

Ingredients

1 lb fresh fish fillets (Cod, Mahi Mahi or any other white fish)

Salt and Pepper

Olive Oil

1 dozen corn tortillas

Salsa (homemade or store bought)

1 Avocado

Cabbage

Directions

Soak the fish in cold water for one minute then pat dry with a paper towel. Add a few tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet and cook the fish on medium heat. The fish should be barely translucent when cooked. Second, thinly slice the cabbage and avocado. Sprinkle the cabbage with cider vinegar and salt for flavor. Next, place the tortillas on a napkin or paper towel and heat them microwave on high for 20 to 25 seconds. This will absorb the moisture. Finally, assemble your tacos.

If you’re inviting guests over, it may be fun to spread out all the ingredients and let them make their own tacos!

The History of Beach Volleyball

A very popular beach activity at Sunscape Resorts & Spas is beach volleyball! Our guests love hitting the sand and serving it up it hopes of beating their opponents. But when did beach volleyball begin? Today, we’re going to give you a brief history.

Beach volleyball is said to have begun in the 1920s in Santa Monica, California about 25 years after the indoor version of the game was invented on the East Coast of the United States in Massachusetts. Initially, the sport was played as a family fun activity, but its low cost soon made it spread around the world. By the 1930s, the game was being played in places such as Riga, Sofia and Prague.

During the Great Depression, the sport experienced quite a boost as the economy was suffering and families were looking for fun activities for relatively no cost. By the 1950s, competitions were being held in several cities in California. Shortly after, sponsors realized the popularity of beach volleyball and began to take advantage of it.

In the 1970s, the first pro beach volleyball tour was organized and by 1986, the International Volleyball Federation had recognized the sport. Finally, in 1996, beach volleyball became part of the Olympics.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people enjoy the sport worldwide either participating for competition or for pleasure and this includes many of our guests!
