New Zumba video: Salsa Choke

Hi! Hope you’re enjoying your Friday so far!

Since Sasha and I are both moving in the next few months, we got together to film a ton of new videos for our YouTube channel. It’s a bummer that we have to be apart, but we have some fun projects planned while we’re in different locations. (I’ll be in San Diego and she’ll be in AUSTRALIA!)

We’re all doing the Friday dance, so how about a little Zumba-style Friday dance?

Salsa Choke

This a gold star: I mess up, and am a giant nerd at the end. Hope you enjoy, haha.

If you try it out, let me know how it goes!

For a great workout combo, try the Zumba video below (warmup) + Β this Tabata circuit and this barre burner.Β 

Have a wonderful weekend <3

  1. 2 thumbs up!! Love the song too. Australia wow!!

  2. Love the video! I remember not loving the choreo they gave us for that song but never did anything else with it. I might have to revisit it now πŸ™‚

  3. I don’t understand these videos…4 minutes isn’t a workout and no cueing to follow asking and learn

    • Fitnessista says:

      Have you taken a Zumba class? You watch and follow. I included links to make this a 35 minute full workout

      • It just seems like you should post a 30 min video then, instead of stopping e very 4 minutes to find a new video. And no I don’t zumba. I prefer real workouts like running, not dancing like a high school cheerleader w my mom haircut styled and a solo beat skirt

        • Um…calm down. Why are you so upset over a workout video that is completely free for you? If you don’t like it, don’t do it. Not everyone can run and some people (like me) feel like running is torture because I have very bad knees and I get bored out of my mind. Everyone likes something different – it doesn’t mean that any type of workout is good or bad – just different.

        • Fitnessista says:


    • Wow. This was kind of rude.

  4. Love it!! Having a little dance party by myself in my room right now. πŸ˜‰

  5. Yay! Love you’re guys’ dance videos! It must have been such a bummer at the spa that BOTH you and Sasha had to quit around the same time. I DREAD the day when my favorite instructors stop teaching the classes I take! Gonna do this new song after work! Thanks!

    PS. I was looking at pictures on facebook and saw that you and Sasha did a Zumbathon last year in Tuscon. Small world as my Zumba instructor here in MN is involved with it up here! It was such a surprise to see you guys. πŸ™‚ Have good weekend, Gina!

    • Involved with the organization that was hosting the Zumbathon… that’s what I meant. Need to be more clear and not assume people can read my mind! Hehe πŸ™‚

  6. Great video Gina! I just had a blast shaking my booty in my living room. Love our authenticity – have a great day! πŸ™‚

  7. *your – whoops! πŸ™‚

  8. Looks like such fun! πŸ™‚

  9. This is a riot! I watched the first couple minutes and was booty-shaking in my seat. It’s on the workout plan for tomorrow. I love these!! πŸ™‚

  10. I love the fact I can do this at home! It gives my usual dance parties a little more structure πŸ˜‰

  11. fun workout video!! Perfect for snowed in days here in the North East!

  12. I am trying Zumba for the first time this Sunday! I don’t know what took me so long to get on the train…but here I go! Wish me luck, I’m so excited, but your video makes it look like a blast.

    Happy New Year!!!

    • I am terrified to try ZUMBA! Good luck! I need more instruction than just a watch me and do! I’m a klutz!

      • Don’t be afraid! It takes a couple of times but you’ll so get it! They are introducing new songs all the time, so eventually everyone is a beginner again. It is a great workout, I burn like 450-550 calories in one hour! Try it! So much more fun in a classroom setting than on a DVD, though Gina and Sasha’s video’s are fun because you can tell they enjoy each others teaching style. TRY IT!!

        • Fitnessista says:

          πŸ™‚ totally agree! it’s an awesome workout, and much more fun (to me) than being on a treadmill

      • Fitnessista says:

        don’t be afraid! no one expects you to do it perfectly- it’s just moving and having fun πŸ™‚

    • Have fun Erin and if you don’t like the isntructor, try someone else or give it a few tries. I have an awesome instructor and aside from my strength class, it is my favorite class of the week!

    • Fitnessista says:

      good luck! i hope you love it! let me know how it goes πŸ™‚ remember that it’s worth trying different instructors to find a style you like, too

  13. I really enjoyed it! It was fun to do – tried it a couple of times! πŸ™‚

  14. This is my favorite Zumba video of you guys! Great job, I loved it!!! Thanks!

  15. I love your videos with Sasha! I always feel like such a tool trying to follow along (and I was a dancer for 10 years!) but you two are adorable. It’s a nice way to ease into a workout on one of those “I don’t wanna!” days. Plus, it’s great practice for the dance floor.

  16. Love it! Also, that Tabata circuit is no joke!

  17. Exctied and sad that you are both onto great adventures, but will love the videos as they come out. Now I feel the need to do Solibeat for my Sunday morning workout, I love it! Thank you so much, and great job with all the videos!

  18. I never comment but just wanted to say thanks so much for the emails that you’ve been sending with the weekly workout plans…they’ve helped me so much to exercise more consistently (which I find especially difficult in hot and humid Sydney, Australia!!!). Also, huge congrats on the book deal…I’d love to read a post with more details!

  19. I wish you’d talk in the video instead of throwing up signs for “2 times” & “left” & “right”. It was
    Kinda cool, but could be better.

  20. We’ve had a snowy weekend with an ice storm today so your three workout videos suggested were perfect! Thanks for providing them, they helped my cabin fever and allowed me to get a nice workout in for the day!

    I showed the video to my now 2 year old (as of today!!) and it was pretty much the cutest and funniest thing ever to watch her start dancing to the music :)))
