I agree, I loooove JD2. I bought that one along with Zumba and Gold's Gym Cardio workout. Zumba is fun, but it FEELS like a workout and she always tells me I'm doing perfect, even when I stand there and watch her (haha). JD2 is just plain fun. I forget that my arms are burning during Katti Kalandal, but i just HAVE to beat my score. emoticon

I can't say how much I am enjoying Just Dance 2 for the Wii! Not only am I having fun, laughing at myself and sweating off some calories, but my four year old is getting into it as well. She jumps in and dances right along with me, and her laughter keeps me going. Being an avid gamer all my life, I think that combining exercise with gaming, is the best thing anyone could think of. Its helped me alot, especially when I have children to entertain during the times I want to get my exercise in.

I love both JD2 and JD, I wish they had better songs for download though! I use that as my cardio for 1 hour on my off days.

I just got Just Dance 2 last week and I am hooked! My 7 year old son loves it and dances like crazy. I finally gave it a whirl and man, I was out of breath and sweating after only one song. I would definitely count it as exercise because it is as long as you are putting in your best effort.

I agree with someone else that I would not list it as ballroom dancing but more like linedancing. You burn some calories but not a ton!

I have been doing the Sweat Mode since I got Just Dance 2 on Monday, and let me tell you, my arms are sore! I'm loving it, though :)

The trick is learning how to watch where you're going AND keep your head up.

I was just playing Just Dance 2. I only did it for 24 min. and according to my HRM I burned 255 calories. What an awesome workout, I was sweating my butt off!! It's so much fun though, I can't believe I burned that many calories emoticon

A heart rate monitor is the best way, but many people log it as dance (ballroom, disco). I feel that that number is a bit high, but hey - you're working out!

I use a heart monitor so that tells me how many calories I have burned.

I worked out last night for the first time with Just Dance 2. I did it for approximately 30 minutes and it really does go by fast. I was impressed with the workout that I got from it too. I'm not sore today but I was definitely short of breathe and would consider it exercise! Anyone know how to tell the calorie burn though?

Goal to be down 25 lbs by Christmas from 9.14.11.

I count it as dancing! Someone once posted that they have a heart rate monitor and found that their calores burned was around what sparkpeople considers "Line Dancing" so I enter it in as that.

Yeah I count it as exercise, log it under dancing. My daughter won't play with me eirther she says I can't dance so I do it alone.

Absolutely! I log it as the ballroom/disco dance option on Spark. Dancing is great exercise!

I count it as exercise, because I put on my heart rate monitor while playing, and as long as I am in fat-burning or cardio range, then I know I'm getting in cardio just the same as I would if I was at the gym. If you have a HRM (or if you can borrow one) then try it. You will be surprised at how much cardio you get in!

My daughter got the Just Dance game for Christmas. I have done it a couple of times.

Do you count this as exercise? I know it seems like you burn quite a bit of calories.

Although I think my girls are embarassed when I do it with them, so I guess I'll just have to do it myself.

Thanks,
Missy
