The Zumba Fitness Program has taken the world by storm. More and more instructors are becoming certified and classes are being offered all over the world. The Zumba Fitness Program is an exercise program that blends Latin and international sounds to create a workout that is more party than work. A little nervous about trying it out in a room full of strangers at the gym? Now, you don’t have to. Majesco Entertainment launched the Zumba Fitness Video Game, that you can play in the privacy of your home and, when you get good at it, with friends at a party.
I tried it out myself and I have to admit that I am a worse dancer than I thought. I skipped the part where the game teaches you the steps of each dance and jumped right into a routine. It took all (and I mean all) of my concentration to keep in time with the game. It was fun dancing but when I was done, it felt like I had just been on the treadmill. It is an intense workout. If I keep this up, I’ll not only have a rocking body, I’ll also be a pretty versatile dancer as well. The game offers many dance styles, including Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Rumba and (my favorite) Calypso. You can also choose the setting, whether you want to do it on a roof or in a club. Its compatible with Wii, Move and Playstation as well as Natal.
This game is set to hit stores in time for the Holiday season so keeps your eyes peeled for it.
