I haven't been able to make it to my Zumba classes these last few weeks because of holiday craziness, but I received the Wii game for Christmas. Am so excited to try it out here at home!!

I ordered the DVDs because my schedule is so hectic (work, school, and homework) that it is difficult for me to make it to zumba classes. I haven't been using them lately, but I've decided today is a good day to start!!

I've been taking Zumba classes plus have the videos at home since September ... I've lost 25 pounds. It's so much fun & so not intimidating. I was so scared of the first class thinking it was going to be all these skinny young girls ... most of the class is late 30's & 40's who are out of shape like me.

I bought the DVDs and thought it would be best if I started out in a class and used them at home as a supplement. Am I glad I did! We have so many in our area and it's convenient after work so I don't get tempted not to go once I'm at home. I found it helps with the moves vs. doing them at home without that support. Classes are $6 per but if you get a class card it's only $5 - not bad. And the best thing is that it's alot of ladies and men that are older - my biggest "get over it" was that the class was going to be a bunch of 20 something skinny girls. LOL

We got Zumba for the XBox Kinect. I LOVE it! I've been wanting to make it to a class, but all the ones near me are in the day or start just early enough that I can't make it in time. I'm a terrible dancer, but I'm having so much fun. Am definitely interested in hearing feedback on the game vs the DVDs. I've never been a believer in the video game as a form of exercise, but wow...this has been AMAZING. Fun, fun, fun!

Let me know how you like the DVD's compared to the Wii Zumba! I didn't know that Wii had Zumba! Now I have to look into that. It's nice to have different options.

I just went ahead and ordered the dvd's on that payment plan - I cannot wait to get them. i work out to the Wii Zumba that I got every day and it is wonderful - I am curious how the DVD's will compare. But at least I will be able to shake it up even more now!

Kim, I got my Zumba DVD's on www.zumbafitness.com They are expensive, but they offer a 3 month payment plan. You can also get them at www.zumba.com I am having a great time with the DVD's. Sooo worth the money.

KIMAJOR you can order it from amazon.com or you can order it from zumba. The infomercial phone number is 800-459-1502. I fyou opt to- they will split it up into 3 pymts of 19.95 and the first pymt will also include a charge of 12.95 for shipping.

Hi, Sherry!
I'm relatively new to Zumba and would like to get a Zumba Basic DVD for home. Where did you get yours?

Great, Joyce! Let me know what you think! Sherry, you will continue to love them! Maybe we can keep each other motivated at home!! I find writing my workouts on my calendar as I do them help be stay accountable.

I just got my Zumba DVD's in yesterday. I LOVE Zumba Basic. I'm new to Zumba and I'm not the greatest dancer, so having them explain the steps is really helpful. I'm having so much fun!!

** Change is like walking an uphill, rocky road: you will stumble, you will fall. You may even roll downhill a bit. You will be tempted to stay down. You'll ask yourself "why bother"? But, if you pick yourself up and just keep pushing forward, eventually you'll get to the top and have a beautiful view! **

Do not purchase them through informercial. I purchased the Zumba DVDs on Amazon for less money! It ends up being $64.99 out the door with free shipping option. I got the dvds in less than a week! I love the flexibilty of having them at home at my disposal to workout when I want or have the time. Since I enjoy Zumba'ing I find that I work out 5-6 times a week!

Oh yeah, at at $10 per drop in class, I think the dvds pay for themselves in no time!

I spent the big bucks and I love my videos. I did notice that Amazon carries them too. So maybe you can get just one or two of them instead of the whole set. That would be less expensive.

I got to Zumba once a week at the local YWCA and it is amazing. I started trying to do it at home but can bring myself to spend big bucks on the official DVDs. I've started watching Zumba videos uploaded by instructors on YouTube and doing it along with them in my living room, not the same as a class but still something! My favorite are these ladies with a class in NC that have posted tons of great routines.

So my question, does anyone else do this? Have any particular videos to direct me to? thanks!
