NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Super fit and adorable star Victoria Justice wants to recruit her fans to the fitness world.
Victoria’s teamed up with Zumba to create a dance- fitness choreography set to her song “Shake.”
Apparently, the folks over at Zumba were big fans of the young performer.
“I had heard of Zumba but never taken a class. A few weeks later I went on a fitness retreat with my mom and they were offering Zumba classes. My mom and I both took one and we loved it! It is fun and you get a great workout without feeling like you’re really exercising, because you’re doing dance moves,” Victoria reveals to Healthy Hollywood.
The 20-year-old singer/actress thinks her “stay positive” vibe is perfect to get folks moving.
“The lyrics are about shaking what your mama gave you. So, if a song comes on and you happen to be in a supermarket, just go with it; if you it makes you feel good. I’m all about staying healthy, having fun, and feeling good and so is Zumba. It’s a great way to spread the word,” adds Victoria.
Victoria is super busy juggling her acting career with singing. She recently wrapped a major tour with Big Time Rush and staying in shape was of the utmost importance.
“When you’re touring, I can’t stress how important it is to stay in shape. I do a one hour set of running around on stage singing and dancing. You need to be in shape to do that or it will be extremely difficult,” she continues. “I work out (cardio, weights, and Zumba) before I go on tour and try to do as much as I can in between. I did forty one shows in seven and a half weeks, so that was about five shows a week. My routine one the road is getting enough sleep, eating well and doing some form of exercise when I can, sometimes I will visit the gym in the hotel if there is one. When you perform that many shows each week your show becomes your exercise routine since there isn’t always a lot of time to exercise.”
