Bad shape...Probrably the worst I have been in a long time. 326 is current weight. Thanks for the tips and explaination. That is crazy that they did not have a tracker for weight in the game.

Ok, so I have found one downside to the game- In the manual, it says it has a weight tracking option (something that can actually make your "calories burned" more accurate), yet it's not anywhere on the game. I sent an email to Majesco's customer support only to get a reply telling me that the option was a typo! So weight tracking IS NOT available, which in turn makes the calories burned option pointless and inaccurate.

Getting past this issue though, it's a great game. It fun and gives a GREAT workout.

LOBO, as to what kind of shape you should be in, I started this game being off exercise since the beginning of December and weighing over 230 lbs. Start with a short class of low-med intensity and find where your limit is. :)

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.

I will start my workouts today with the Zumba Rush game. Anybody have pointers on what someone out of shape should start off with. Thanks.

Thanks, this is probably the most fun I've had while working out, which makes it easier to commit.

OMG! Zumba continues to kick my butt! If you need a good workout, GET ZUMBA FITNESS RUSH! I practically have 2 left feet when it comes to Latin dancing, but this breaks it down and burns the calories! I've now lost 6lbs since I started using it Wednesday, I'm not on a strict diet either... This game is worth the $50 I spent on it for sure!

It should be great fun. Just gotta budget it in. I go to actual Zumba classes and it would be great to be able to do it at home too. We could use it in conjunction with Dance Dance Revolution lol.

I really want this game along with all the home workout gear I'll be getting soon. Buuuut, we don't have a Kinect for our XBOX 360. And that in itself is $100+ or so my boyfriend tells me. But I waaaant it oooooh.

I am wanting to purchase it, but I will probably wait for a bit. I am wanting to make it through the first version. I really enjoy the zumba game.

I love playing Dance Central too. When you buy Zumba Rush you will be pleasantly surprised! It's really good.

I might be buying this game this weekend. I have some games to trade in to offset the price. I play 30 minutes of Dance Central 2 every night. This would be a nice change since I've already played through DC2 twice (Easy and Medium).

I've been wanting to try this out, but now I have to wait til it goes to the bargain bin :(

Wife made a big sum of money on commissions and we talked each other into buying a fairly nice Rowing Machine since we use the elliptical quite a bit and would like some variety. If only she was willing to play the kinect more! I've bought enough active-type games to know she dislikes anything *I* suggest, lol.

I have it, and let me tell you it is way better than the first one. I love it! It is way easier to play and the navigation menu is wonderful. Yesterday I play with it for a hour!

Well they do have some major improvements to the game this go around. The did motion capture to render better characters similar to Dance Central. I have not had a chance to play the game but it looks good from the video I have seen for it. I will post the video link in a bit so that you can see the trailer.

I hope the new zumba game is better that the old one. The old one is hard to see all the moves that the character is doing. I do enjoy the old one. So, if it is better with the showing of the moves of the character, I will definitely buy it.

Just wanted to let you all know that Zumba Fitness Rush will be out for Kinect tomorrow. I did not play the first one but I do know that they have made great strides in this version of the game. Full motion capturing of character in the game are being used as you try to get into shape with this new fitness game. Reviews of the game to follow.
