/PRNewswire/ -- Ms. New Jersey Senior America Carol Dugan and Ms.
Florida Senior America Rebecca LaNassa
appear on The SUZANNE Show this week to tout the many benefits of the Zumba Gold exercise program. Their appearance, which is one in a series devoted to healthy living, airs
Wednesday, November 21
7 a.m. (ET
/PT) on Lifetime Television.
Young women who aspire to be beauty queens are met with many challenges, as contestants generally must be attractive, fit, talented, well-dressed, and well-spoken. The same pressures exist at the senior level, where ladies in their "golden" years compete in similar fashion and must look and feel their best. According to reigning champs Dugan and LaNassa, one great way to stay competition-ready is to exercise regularly.
Aside from being ageless beauty queens, Dugan and LaNassa are also Zumba Gold instructors and consider the exercise program to be an integral part of their winning strategy. "Zumba Gold is not only fun, it also gives me the energy and confidence to compete at a high level," says LaNassa. Dugan, an ex-Broadway performer, likes the "motivation, poise, and strength" that the program provides.
Zumba Gold takes the wildly popular, dance party-style Zumba exercise program and modifies the moves and pacing to suit older adults. Zumba Gold Toning takes it to the next level by integrating strength exercises, which can help protect the bones and ward off osteoporosis and arthritis. On Wednesday's show, Dugan and LaNassa demonstrate a portion of the routine, and even bring along some fun toning accessories.
