The holidays are upon us and you know what that means – time spent indulging in lots of cookies, cakes and other rich foods followed by New Year’s resolutions to exercise the extra holiday pounds away. Add the Zumba Fitness 2 game to your holiday gift list and you’re all set to join in on the latest fitness trend that will help you achieve your fitness goals. Zumba Fitness 2 for Wii just released in November and is the sequel to the best-selling fitness game in North America!
Zumba Fitness 2 features more than 30 Zumba dance tracks, including hits from Pitbull, Nicole Scherzinger and Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP. You’ll join Zumba creator Beto and international celebrity instructors Tanya Beardsley and Gina Grant as they guide you through choreography that spans 20 different international dance styles. Shape your body with dances styles from Bollywood and Latin Pop to Hip-Hop and Merengue.
Players can customize their own class with their favorite routines, follow their improvement through an all new Progress tracker and track calories burned. Play in Single Song, Full Class or Zumba Party modes that support up to 4 players. Zumba® Fitness 2 is a unique dance fitness experience that shapes, tones and transforms your body. It’s so fun, you will forget you are even exercising!
I have never taken a Zumba class, so starting with Zumba Fitness 2 on the Wii was really exciting for me! At first, I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up or know how to do the dance moves, but there are options to learn the dances move by move on the game’s slow motion setting. I did this until I got the hang of them.
Now I totally understand why everyone is crazy about Zumba – I get a total body workout that is fast-paced, fun and exciting. I love to exercise, especially when it doesn’t feel like exercise – and the Zumba music and dance is the perfect way to get an awesome workout without feeling like you’re in a boring exercise class. After practicing the Zumba dance moves a few times, the workout was easy for me to follow and I could customize the workout length to just one song if I didn’t have time to go through a whole class. I really like the Zumba Fitness Belt (included with the game) that holds the Wii remote on my hip so I can dance hands free.
I have a baby and young kids at home, which makes it hard for me to get away and go out to the gym. I love that Zumba Fitness 2 has made it possible for me to have my own personal Zumba instructors so that I can join the worldwide Zumba craze from the convenience of my own home. Moms like me will enjoy getting in shape with Zumba!
