My future sister in law is from Ecuador and teaches zumba, half a continent away. LOL she's in Idaho and I'm in PA. I'd love to try it, it looks so fun. Right now I use Walk it Out, but would like a fun dance game. I have my eye on it for Christmas. if I need a belt, I better make one, cause I'm to fat for the ones that are included with most games.

I also bought Zumba. It comes with the belt. If you like to dance, you'll enjoy it. I find it quite challenging because I have no rhythm or coordination whatsoever.

My Zumba came with the belt. It's fits around your waist and has a velcro closure, with a pocket on the side to put your wii remote in. That's how the game measures your movements and gives you points. I just assumed that when you bought the Zumba game you automatically got the belt.

I'm thinking about getting the Zumba for my Wii. What is the belt that's mentioned in an earlier post?

I have it and it seems like a great workout. "Seems" because I keep starting it after a different intense workout and can't keep up the energy to finish it. Really trying to rethink this! emoticon

I have Zumba for the Wii and LOVE it. I use it just about every time I work out. I usually do one of the 45 minute classes and there's a 5 minute cool down along with it. According to my heart rate monitor, I burn about 300-340 calories for one 50 minute session. I've been using it for about 4 months now and haven't gotten bored with it yet.

I hope that helps!

I have it. I have used it a couple times - glad no one had a video camera handy. I am taking a zumba class now, have improved, and, sorry but I have not gone back to try zumba with the wii to see how it compares with the hour-long class that I take. The hour-long class is definitely a high-aerobic workout, although of course participants have a lot of leeway in how high to step, how much bounce to add, how hard to punch the arms, etc.

I love zumba. to me it is fun, not exercise. Really, anything that gets me up out of my chair and moving is a good thing.

When I can't fit in the 3-times-a-week zumba class, I'll get back to my zumba wii. From what I've seen with it, I'm sure I'll be able to get a good aerobic workout.

When I tried it out, I chose a 20-minute workout. I don't know if there are any hour-long workouts. Maybe someone else knows that. 3 20-minute workouts would be ok, but an hour-long one would have a warm-up, sustained high aerobic, then a cool-down. Doing 3 20-minute sessions will not give a long sustained high-energy session.
