This review is from: Zumba Fitness DVD Exercise Kit includes toning sticks (DVD)
I only just started using some of the work outs and I love it! I agree with the other reviewer, some moves are a little tricky to master (I found the samba step the hardest) but with some practise and going over the instructions dvd again, I'm sure they will become easier. What I love is that its not really a work out like those other celebrity dvd's you get, its all dance moves of some latin sort (salsa, cumbria, merenge, reggaeton etc). I have not tried the toning sticks yet, they seem more like maraccas (as they make a noise when using) and dont seem too heavy so I cant comment on them yet. They also have the name of the next step highlighted on the screen so you know whats coming next, and this helps in keeping up with the pace of the dvd. You can choose to disable this if you dont want to see it, although the instructors clearly tell you whats coming next anyway so it didnt matter to me. The book included was useful if you're looking for low fat recipe ideas or just some motivation in using the work outs(having a schedule to follow depending on your fitness level or aim) So if you love to dance, want to get fit or lose weight, I highly recommend doing Zumba!
