I like it. Sometimes I get credit for stuff when I am not correct and vice versa. The belt is funny sometimes but it is loads of fun for me and my 3 yr old daughter. She loves it and I am getting my butt off the couch and moving around and really enjoying myself so I find it worth the $40 I spent at Walmart.

A good way to see how I will feel about taking a class.

I got it for Christmas, and I'm enjoying it!

I'm having a little trouble with the belt not staying in position, but I'm sure I'll figure it out...

Also, I seem to be getting credit for moves I'm not making...lol

Got it for Christmas and have done it twice now. I think it is a great alternative to class or for the opposing nights I don't have class. I wore my heart rate monitor and burned 369 calories in a 45 minute intermediate session. In a 60 minute zumba class I burn around 630 calories. Its fun and I will work my way up to the expert level.....

I got it but I didn't like it. It started to speed stuff up. Plus the belt didn't fit me at all. I think we might return it because my husband wants to see if we can get a game we can play together. I have golds cardio gym, Just Dances, DDR, and a ton more exercise games plus DVDs. It will wind up sitting.

Plus the screen is all scrunched. :(

Ironically, I knew NOTHING about Zumba until I purchased the game ( I am a DDR addict ) - I AM HOOKED!!! What a fantastic workout! I track calories burned with my HR monitor, and it's close to what I burn when jogging :). It's SO much fun too!

I was missing my live Zumba classes because of my nutty work schedule so I got Zumba Wii. I love it! I did the intermediate 45 minute class a few days ago and burned 433 calories according to my heart rate monitor. That is comparable to the live classes where my average calorie burn was 500 for one hour. Best of all, I can work around my schedule.

I have been using it for about 2 weeks also and agree that the time goes by quickly. That is a good tip for placing the remote in so that the bottom goes in first. Sometimes it takes awhile to move from Stage 1 to the 2 or 3 but it does keep it interesting.

I've been using it for about 2 weeks (until I get my dvd's for Christmas) and love it. The time goes by so fast. As far as getting your person to stay in the green I've noticed if I put the bottom of the remote in the belt first it works better.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Zumba for Wii! It has lots of options and you can choose what level you want to start with. With each level you complete it unlocks more levels up till you get to work out with Beto. Doesn't take the place of a class, but when you get that urge to shake it, it's a fun way to workout.

I didn't know there was Zumba for the Wii - we are getting a Wii console for christmas so the Zumba will be added to the wish list of games!

I too wonder why zumba isn't an option under the cardio tracker - I add the minutes under the dance, fast, ballet, twist option.

I definitely want one. I don't understand though with so many people doingZumba why it doesnt have its own category in the fitnes section to track. You can track Wii stuff there.

SNICKBIT522 - go to your spark page and hit edit and then on the right hand side there is a box that says personal signature - place whatever you want there and then on your posts you will see that info. under your tracker.

I recently bought the DVDs so not sure if this would be worth it, plus I am on a tight budget. It does look like fun though.

Mine came yesterday. Can't wait to start it. May have to wait until next week. Hubby is home this week (lord help me lol) and Wii is hooked up to the TV in the family room. Need to get that new TV for the basement.

I have done the easy beginner class #1 and #2. I love it!!! I scored over 400 points each time and the 20 minutes goes by so fast, I can't believe it!!! I even make it to the final level in bonus energy, I get back up dancers additional scenery and more intense loud music!!!! I can't wait to do it again tomorrow!!!

Ps---how can I get a quote or goals to show up under my weight tracker in these posts?

I track my zumba minutes by selecting the dance, fast, ballet, twist option in the cardio fitness log. If you have a heart rate monitor that would be your best option. If not select the above through the fitness log then you get an estimated calorie burn. Have fun dancing......

I just got my zumba game for wii and I like it so far! I only went through and learned all of the moves and I haven't done any routines yet. I have a question for the team though, how do you track zumba in the fitness tracker?
