Zumba® Fitness Honored At 2013 IHRSA Show With Prestigious 'John McCarthy Industry Visionary Of The Year' Award And Augie's Quest 'Leadership Award'

"We are humbled and proud to be recognized by these two exceptional organizations," said Alberto Perlman, Zumba® Fitness co-founder and CEO. "To be named a 'visionary' by the global industry leaders who make up IHRSA underscores the phenomenal health and charitable contributions that our Zumba® instructors are making around the world. And to be honored with the 'Leadership Award' from a heroic friend at Augie's Quest reinforces exactly why we created the Zumba® brand: to truly make a difference in our world."
