XYIENCE Athlete and UFC Middleweight Mark Muñoz Makes Good on His New Year’s Resolution to Learn Zumba at LA Fit Expo on Saturday, January 25

What: XYIENCE Xenergy, the official energy drink of the UFC®, arranges for XYIENCE middleweight athlete Mark “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Muñoz to participate in a Zumba® Latin Pop workshop at the Los Angeles Fit Expo Evolution Fitness Conference.

The muscular middleweight believes Zumba is a fitness trend that will continue to grow in popularity. “From what I hear, it’s a great exercise that combines salsa dancing and fitness,” says Muñoz. “In fact, I’d love to learn Zumba so I can teach it in my gym.” Munoz, who has past experience choreographing dance, owns Reign Training Center, a UFC gym in Orange County’s Lake Forest, Calif.
