The Kukuwa Fitness® workout is a unique style of fitness that is derived from African cultural dance movements. The workout features isolated and integrated movements of the head, shoulders, waist, pelvic, quads, legs, feet, toes, hands, wrists and is designed to force the use of energy and breathing to synchronize with the rhythm of the music. Kukuwa’s music collection is sourced from all over the continent of Africa, and is carefully curated for the unique dance choreography.
