I just tried it last night. It's a great workout, but not quite as fun as the other dance games that I have (Just Dance 1 and 2, Michael Jackson Experience and Gold's Gym Dance Workout). Still, it's similar to going to an actual Zumba class, and I think it will make a good addition to my collection of Wii exercise games :)
I just picked the game up this weekend. I have only done the 20 beginners and I was pooped afterwards. It is a bit hard to follow with all the colors but I found the moves easy to pick up since I go to a zumba class. I will say it is much harder to dance on carpet though. The tutorials are not good at all. I recommend taking the remote out of the belt for those and just moving it when you are ready to go on to the next step.

i just bought it yesterday and did a 40min workout with it today - awesome! just as quick and fun as the classes i took last year. i had it on medium and was definitely feeling it but still so happy i got it :)
I just picked mine up yesterday and it is a fantastic cardio workout (even at easy setting) and I am dying after 10 minutes and look nothing like the dancers on the screen, but it is fun. It is still a little intense for my cardio level (read: almost nil) but I consider gettting through 10 minutes a win for me...which is half the workout! I have two other friends who have it, and we all love it!

I know I look like a darn fool just trying to keep up with the moves. I know I'm not doing them right (at least not yet) BUT it's so addicting. and never the same twice. If I didn't have to drive 19 miles one way for a local class, I'd sign up for a real life one.
I have been considering purchasing the Wii Zumba, but I was not sure if I would be a good workout. I have been reading a few replies regarding the Wii Zumba and it sounds like it is a good workout. Sound I purchase Zumba for Wii Fit.
Does anyone do/own or has done Zumba for wii? If so, how would I log it under my workout? In otherwords, what kind of dance should I log it as?
anyway-I did a single routine yesterday when I got the game (only about 3 1/2 minutes) to get a feel for it. OMG. By the end of the single dance I was out of breath and needing to sit but I fell in love with it. Looking forward to doing longer sessions.
