Customer Review

on 31 July 2012
I've never taken a Zumba class, but after really enjoying the Wii Fit i was looking for a slightly more high aerobic type game/workout. I thought i would give this a go, and i'm pleased i did. After working out that a local Zumba class would cost me £6 a go, you only have to do four hours workout before you get your money back, so i knew that if i didn't like it, it is a fairly safe risk - and i thought i could always sell it on.
That isn't going to happen anytime soon though.
First go at it, i was so confused and absolutly rubbish at it - maybe i shouldn't have jumped straight into a class workout though! I found that it took me about an hour in total to be moving right, and managing to follow the instructors correctly (which is about the time i took learning stuff on the Wii Fit). The learning steps feature is quite essential, but you will quickly move onto the classes, which really do give you a good workout. I've improved greatly in just a week with around 30-45 mins per day of play. Unlike other people i haven't had a problem with either the belt/remote aspect nor the scoring system on the Zumba game - and any aspect that the game doesn't seem to be scoring you correctly on individal moves in a single song you will find by the time the song has finished you have a score that does in my option seem to represent the workout song in total correctly (I'm normally achieveing a 65-70% score on the harder workouts, which i find is approiate for my workouts, as the only times i score 80-90% is on songs which i am much more familar with the style of dance and speed). I did find with the belt that if you have a wrist strap on the Wii remote, it fits into the belt pouch better without that on it.
There is a good mix of low/high intensity workouts, the music is approiate and encouraging for those higher energy workouts, and the style of dance is varied from salsa to a more traditional step aerobic style moves.
