Thanks for all your insight. I ended up getting Zumba 2 for Christmas and I LOVE it! I might have to put Exerbeat on my wishlist for my birthday. :)

3 steps forward and 2 steps back still equals progress!

I borrowed a friends zumba for a week and got bored with it by the 5th day, unless you love to dance. I like a lot of variety so the exerbeat has been great for me. You cant beat the price for what you get so many different workouts and once again having to wait for the mii character to make their way around the world gets tedious but I always create my own workout and just stretch at the very end while she walks or flies the miles. So I vote the exerbeat Have fun.emoticon

I own both Zumba 1 and just got Zumba 2 for Christmas. Zumba 2 is great much better than the 1st one. I did the 20 min short class and it kicked my butt. I have been attending live classes for almost a year. The music is much better in Zumba 2. Lots of flashing lights and fireworks. I felt like I was really there.

I am also interested in hearing more about exerbeat. I have heard of it but do not know much about it.

I own the first two wii Zumba games. If you get one, get the second one. I do like it a lot and you do get that seamless workout and you can choose a short or longer class. I'm always tired after the short one though. I don't think the moves are hard, but I've taken a lot of Zumba classes too and also have all the Zumba DVDs, but in general any kind of dance workout is pretty easy for me to catch on to. If you've done any kind of dance exercise I'd judge your ability to pick up on Zumba by your ability to pick up on those. I've read TONS of review on Exerbeat. I'd like it for Christmas, but the one big negative is that the workout isn't seamless b/c you have to wait on your mii to travel on the map, but like AEHEGE said I'd just do my own thing there, some jumping jacks, job/walk in place, etc.

When friends tell you how awesome you look, drop the "I still have more to go" crap. You worked hard and you deserve the compliment! ~Jillian Michaels

I have Exerbeat and I really like it. It has a lot of variety -- Dance (aerobic, salsa, hip hop); martial arts: karate, boxing; Conditioning: yoga, pilates and stretching and then there are family games which I haven't done and am not too interested in trying. I was quite annoyed at first because after you do an exercise you have to wait while you (as a mii-character) travel along a route to go around the world. I would rather just continue with the work out. But now I just march in place or something and wait for it to continue. You can get a good work out, especially as you get more minutes in, more is unlocked for you to do.

I have never tried Zumba but it looks fun. I will look into Zumba 2.

I love zumba 2 much, much better than the first zumba. It's much more user friendly and has a calorie tracker as well that shows how much you burned after each workout. Never treid exerbeat, interested in trying it though.

I can't help too much. I ordered Exerbeat and am impatiently waiting for it. I have done the wii Zumba once. It took me forever to figure out how to play it. I'm very new to Wii. I need to get a lesson from my daughter. The short time I did it, I liked it. I did take a class once through our company wellness. If I belonged to a club I would go. It was great fun. Most people can't do the moves very well. So if you get a chance give it a try. Stand in the back and go for it. I'll repost when I get my Exerbeat and a Zumba lesson from my daughter. OHHHH and the Abba Dance video is on sale at Amazon.....so debating on that one.

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

I am not familiar with Exerbeat. I have the first Zumba for Wii and I like it. It is a great workout! 20 minute beginner can kick your butt! But a disclaimer here: I have been going to Zumba classes at my local Y for about a year now and LOVE them! That made it easier for me to pick up the Zumba for Wii steps right away as they are very similar to steps in class. I have Zumba 2 on my Christmas wish list for Santa to change things up!

I can't decide which to get. I know exerbeat is much cheaper but I really don't know much about it.

I've been DYING to do zumba but the DVD program is WAY out of my budget and I've been to shy to attend the live classes (and I don't really have the time).

What are the pros and cons of each?

I want something that will make me do it for a sustained period of time. Just dance is great, but I often don't do more than a few songs at a time. I want the option to do a seamless workout once I get the hang of it.
