i have Gold's Gym Dance and it is okay, but I find I am not anxious to do it often. I also have Walk it out. I've only done that once and did not feel motivated. I just want to get the exercise and not be looking for things to click on. I would like to try Zumba. I just got Exerbeat and I do love that. It has so much variety -- step aerobics, latin dance, martial arts, yoga, games; it has a daily challenge that is really a challenge to do. It is all around fun and I look forward to doing it. It is also only about twenty dollars and worth more than that.

I have the Golds Gym Dance and I use only the boxing and maybe a few of the games. I am not good at all when it comes to the latin moves so I just don't use them. I was thinking about the Zumba but not sure if I want the Wii game or the XBox game. After I have baby I'm getting the UFC Training for the XBox.

I have both of them: Golds Gym Dance Workout and Zumba for Wii. Love both! I do Zumba classes at my local Y and it helped me to do the games better as I was more familiar with the steps. Both of them are great workouts! I also like to do the Wii Walk It Out game. I am addicted to that one. You walk to the beat of music, earn points and build your island. I really like the calorie counter on the Golds Gym Dance Workout game. I have heard some people get frustrated over the two games and not getting the dance steps correctly (either because they can't seem to "get it" or the Wii Remotes aren't accurate enough.) If you can get past that and do it for the exercise and for fun and the workout, you will enjoy yourself and feel great! For me, that is the point. Again, going to the Zumba classes helped as the teachers tell you that the point is to get moving and have fun and not necessarily do it "right." Both the Golds Gym and Zumba use Latin dance steps/Latin music. I do enjoy them. I do not in any way consider myself a coordinated person at all and I am able to do the moves enough to score points and have fun.
Hi, does anyone else use this one? I just got it and Zumba last week. I've used it 2x so far. I like it, but it's hard for me to do the feet and arms, I'm working on it. Also, if you use it, do you use one or two controllers? It seems like two would be better. What I like is the calorie burning counter, and also the tutorials seem pretty good. I have tried all of them, and you can get a workout just doing them and the beginning dance games. Haven't even tried any of the other ones yet.
