Zumba Fitness: Join the Party
I can't stand this.
I really do not understand how the current rating for this is about an 8. It doesn't even work properly! First of all, the waist strap is WAYYY too huge for me (I may have kind of a small waist, but geez), so I have to put the wii controller in my pocket or pants band, and let me tell you it doesn't stay very well. But since it tracks your hips, you have to manage with it. Second of all, even though it may be sliding around a bit since I can't use the waist band, it doesn't read me almost AT ALL. There is absolutely nothing wrong with my sensor or controllers, and no matter how much I move it just isn't enough for the game. Its extremely frustrating. Both me and my mom (who is able to use the waist band, just barely) couldn't stand this game to the point we eventually got rid of it. Its absolutely terrible, there's too many problems with it, and the interface was a little annoying and confusing. However through the frustration it did get moving, but only because you had to move SO much (to the point it was COMPLETELY un-natural). I understand Zumba's supposed to make you move and sweat, but the amount it wants you to in this game is absolutely ridiculous. I wouldn't recommend to anyone.
by a video instead
tutorial OK; Doesn't track motions. Set controller on table and stared at TV: it said I was doing great. Just stood there tapping my feet: it said I was doing great. A little hard to follow some steps, graphics are the issue. I would recommend either buying a video and following it, or buy your favorite dance CD and dance to it for 30 minutes a day. Also, some of the lyrics aren't appropriate for children, suggestive.
This game is, the perfect mixture of fun and challenging. It is slightly hard to do though if you have no idea what your doing but if you pay attention to the tutorial, it'll be a breeze. The moves are fast paced when not in tutorial so it takes a lot of practice in the tutorial before you can glide through the beginner 20 minuet class. I love this game and would definitely recommend this game to everyone that likes a good workout while having a blast learning how too dance.
I have gained alot of weight while pregnant with my child and havent lost none. I figured i would try this cuz I am always doing stupid little dances for my baby. At first i could only do 5 mins. Then i went to 10. I couldnt do the steps and i was exhausted. Then the 2nd week it got so much easier. If I couldnt do a step i would try nearest to it. Well towards The end of 2nd week is when I started to weigh. I do the 20 mins of the easy clas. Usually once a day but I have been having so much energy I do it 2 day sometimes. And weather has been nice and with all this energy i walk a couple times a day. I lost 6 pds in 5 days cuz of the zumba. I gave me energy to do so much more. I catch myself moving my hips walking to another room. Give it a chance it definat works.
I have complaints about this game
1. it doesn't track use (i.e, how long sessions last). I like to know, without having to write it down, how long I've worked out and my progression toward the next level. 2. the sensor doesn't pick up many of my movements, especially belly dancing. 3. there is no option for exiting the program. 4. I found the tutorial to learn the steps hard to catch on to, and it blew through many of the movements. 5. for beginners, the steps are too fast, especially if you're working out on carpet. Other than that, you can get your blood pumping and legs moving.
WOW, THIS IS GREAT!
If you love to dance, you will LOVE this! Exercise while having FUN....what a concept. I just started out, I'm overweight and somewhat out of shape so it's pretty exhausting! I can tell though that it's going to accomplish what I thought it would (to help me lose weight and shape up at the same time). I really love that it starts out with warm up "dances" and also has "cool down" dance moves. LOVING IT!!!!!!!
I love it!
Ok...so i was a little skeptical about getting the game, but I finally did. It is great! The music is awesome and it really is a workout! I skipped learning the moves because it was actually more difficult than just doing a routine. I would recommend this a million times! Can't wait for the second one!
As a guy i was a little hesitant to buy this game but i wanted a really good cardio workout that didn't feel like a "workout"plus i wanted to improve my more advance dance skills and this game delivers in both aspects! I highly recommend this game rather you want to learn to dance better, get a good cardio workout, or both.
takes working out to the next level
I luv it :) I notice that once I started playing My lil one jumped in then my mom. now the entire family loves working out to ZUMBA. Trust me if you thought working out was borning then get ZUMBA all I know is that you wont be bored not even for a second. :)
I was on my high school's dance team 8 years ago so I have had previous dance experience. I do not find it difficult to keep up with the dance moves. It's so fun and I do not realize I have worked out because I have so much fun while dancing. I find myself actually breaking a sweat! Great workout! My only complaint is that the belt rides up on me. I have to adjust it between each routine. It's fine with me though. I'm not a very picky person. Very affordable compared to the zumba classes in my town. I would recommend this game to others!
