    starter pack for free, letting players rock out to "Zumba" by Don Omar
    and "Activao," a Zumba original track, in addition to the original six
    pre-loaded songs
--  Group goal setting - Using Facebook Groups, players can create their
    own workout groups, set goals and challenges, and encourage each other
    to reach their fitness goals
--  Tracking live class participation - Players will also be able to input
    time spent in live classes into the app's progress tracker to help
    meet their fitness goals

program easily accessible so we can continue to change lives and
