oooooh! Good to know, lol. I wasn't sure what it was for! Luckily it was thier fault and they're sending it to me. Could even be in the mail today. In the meantime, I am having a blast with the Just Dance. I've only done Just Dance 4, and put the Kids one in for my 4 year old daughter (she doesn't get the contoller aspect of it at all) and I'm not the most coordinated person in the world, but I had fun! emoticon

Finally got my Wii today. My hubs will have to set it up for me. I'm a little mechanically/electrically challenged. He'll be home soon. I'm going to try Just Dance and Zumba. They sent it to me without the belt though, so I hope that doesn't make too much of a difference. Irony= Finding your missing piece to the PS3 Personal Trainer the same day you get your Wii emoticon

I really liked my zumba wii till i discovered the xbox kinect version. If you are thinking on which to get i liked xbox more.

one of the best wii exercise games i liked was my fitness coach. simple yet effective. no celebs or fancy features but reasonably priced and encouraging. I also loved the just dance games as well.

wii and xbox are great ways to stay fit in winter when you can't go out due to cold.

I'm cheering for you! Those two games are absolutely fabulous, I can't get enough! :D

I actually saw the DVD box set for Zumba at Costco last week and I'm toying with the idea of buying it. The hang-up, it's $65... winter time is not so great for my husband in construction so I don't think it's a good idea to splurge... I already have the other ones to enjoy.

I have two conditions for my next reward, which is a gorgeous winter leather coat I have had my eyes on since Christmas:
1) the price goes down to $199
2) I get to buy the next size down and therefore fit the next size down by next month

This is the one:

My hubs and I have a deal going. It started out 2 years ago when he bought me Personal Trainer for the PS3 and I used it about 3 times and now I've lost pieces and never use it. Then he saw that my mom has Just Dance and a Wii and she obviously never uses it so he said that if I got it, it'd just sit there and collect dust and I'd never use it. So wanting to prove him wrong we made a deal where I had to work out and lose 15 lbs for him to get it for me. So far I have lost 8 pounds and have about 7 to lose before I get my Wii and Just Dance and Zumba. Wish me luck ladies, I'm on a roll so far. emoticon

Thanks everyone for the reviews on Zumba. I think I'm going to buy it. I've always heard it's a great workout. I have Just Dance 3 & 4 and I love them and my kids like to play them with me. I hope that they will want to do the zumba with me too. emoticon

The Just Dance ones are really fun, my 6 year old boy just loves shacking his touch LOL

I often play the game with him! He gets bored with Zumba because they don't have many pop songs...

The 4 year old has the attention span of a fly, so she'll usually get as far as putting running shoes on and swinging side to side before she's pulling stickers out of a sticker book and putting them all over the place!!!

At least they keep busy...

That sounds awesome and I will definitely be buying at least one of those. I also plan on buying at least one Just Dance. I want to get my daughter a Disney Just Dance or something like that. I did a weightloss yoga the other night and it did 2 things, both kicked my butt, and amazed myself that I could even do those poses. emoticon

Hey ladies,

I have a soft spot for the Zumba Core game, I've now created a custom class of all of my favourite songs out of that one and I just plop it in and do it and have a great time as I now know all of the moves!!!!

As for the Zumba 2, I think the song selection and workouts are fabulous. I switch between the two in order not to get bored.

Lately my cardio endurance has increased a lot so I have been shopping for good group exercise classes to get my heart going and I have started to step up my cardio workouts on the machines as well by adding a little stairmaster into the mix. It has me pissing sweat. I can't run yet because I get shin splints, but I keep trying and hopefully at some point I'll succeed.

If you have any workout video or game suggestions fire away, I'd love to try something different!

Glad to hear the good reviews! I already had the first Wii Zumba and then I got both Zumba 2 and Zumba Core for Christmas. I like 2 much better than the first one, so hopefully I'll be able to stick with it. Right now I'm doing just a 20-minute workout twice a week, but I'm having so much fun that I think I'll have to go for the longer workouts soon. It's definitely a good and fun workout.

Hey ladies! I just borrowed Zumba from a friend yesterday. Hoping to give it a try tomorrow. Joined a bootcamp class last night and really enjoyed it. Between Zumba, bootcamp, and my regular workouts, hopefully I can shed this stubborn 30 pounds.

Totally! I recently got the Zumba 2 game (the first one I reviewed was actually Zumba Core, I don't know if I was clear on that) and I am really enjoying this one as well.

I have definetly seen results with doing the Zumba at home whenever I don't get out to the gym (which is likely to be 3 times of Zumba per week).

Let me know what you think after you've tried it!

Awesome! I am glad to hear this. I have been begging my hubs to buy me a Wii and Just Dance for awhile. We're getting our tax return soon and now I know I want the Zumba as well. I used to have a Dance Dance Revolution and had a lot of success with it. It really helped me look at excersize as fun instead of a chore. I can't wait to get it!

OMG! I was hoping to get feedback from someone about the Zumba game. I wanted to get it for X-Box but wasn't sure if it was worth it. I'm going to get it ASAP! Thanks everyone!

Give me your thoughts if you do end up giving it a shot. emoticon I've done two 60 min classes so far and had a great time and a good work out. It's starting to get cold around here so I'm not digging going out to the gym or even out for walks every night of the week!

Glad to hear about Zumba for the wii. I don't have it. But was wondering if it was worth it. I do have the just dance & love that game. I will have to check on getting the zumba game soon.

Hi there,

This is my review of the Zumba game for Wii. I bought it at Costco last week for $36.99. My son Jack (6) and I had been playing Just Dance every once in a while and I wanted to step it up.

I had been looking at fitness DVDs but was feeling kind of overwhelmed by the number of different programs out there, so I thought why not test something like the Zumba game which should be similar to what I already knew to be a nice cardio workout with Just Dance.

Well Well ladies, I had an absolute blast! Not only are there hundreds of songs in this game, there are different workout levels and durations. AND I DON'T HAVE TO BE EMBARASSED THAT I SUCK AT DOING ALL THE MOVES as I am in the privacy of my own basement. For those reasons, I am looking forward to another 60 min workout tonight.

Since I'm not getting too many pats on the back at home (that's just not how hubby operates), I kind of like that the game gives you rewards (not unlike the Sparkpeople trophies).

According to the fitness tracker, if you do 60 minutes of Cardio dancing, you stand to burn 137 Calories, which is non-negligible.

Let me know what you think of this review and DO SHARE what works for you!

Tania
