One Direction take Zumba classes to prepare for tour

We think you'll agree with us when we say that one of the best things about One Direction is their refusal to do the whole 'synchronised dance routine' that has been so favoured by boybands past.

Instead, they run about the stage thrusting and doing a few crotch grabs here and there. IT'S AWESOME.

However, it seems even thrusty hip movements take some practice, because according to reports the 1D boys have taken up latin dance-based excerise Zumba to help them get in shape for their upcoming world tour.

A source told The Sun: “The lads are not natural movers so them dancing to Latin music is a sight to behold. But they know it’s good for fitness so they’re putting in the graft.”

'Not natural movers? NOT NATURAL MOVERS? Clearly old sourcey pants has never witnessed the boys whack out 'The Joe'. 

Due to the sheer MAHOOSIVENESS of the Take Me Home tour (100 dates over 10 months in 4 continents) management are said to be worried the boys will burn out - so have been getting them into peak physical condition.

Along with the Zumba, the boys are also reported to have been taking spinning classes (if you don't know what that is, thank your lucky stars - we did one once and it was HORRIBLE) and have been told to cut down on alcohol and late nights.

So come on - how many of you would pay good money to see the lads doing some hip swiveling moves to Livin' Da Vida Loca?
