You've seem the adverts and heard the hype, but does Zumba give real results. Does Zumba Wii does it work? read on to see how we have got on with the Zumba Wii game and the results that have been achieved.
As we all know the best way for keeping in shape is exercise, but the problem most of us have is finding the time to workout. Finding time to get to the gym or attending fitness classes can some times prove difficult, this often forces people to look for workouts they can do in their spare time at home. This is were the Zumba video games fits in perfectly.
The game offers a series of full body aerobic workouts starting from 20 minutes in length, with a choice of difficulty levels ranging from amateur to expert. This enables users to build there confidence at home without the worry of what other people think or feeling self conscious about there size or technique.
To ensure you are preforming the moves correctly the game uses motion tracking technology, with the Wii and the PS3 this is done through the controllers and on the xbox 360 this is done using the Kinect. The format of the game that we personally own is on the Nintendo Wii.
We purchased our copy of the game when it was released in the UK on 1 April 2011 and have been extremely impressed. The main user of the game in our house is my wife who has been following the workout plan, which consists of two work outs every three days.
The results have been very positive in the eight weeks we have had the game, with Katie managing to drop one dress size and becoming considerably more toned. On top of this the workouts are great fun so unlike other games and workout programs you stay focused and interested. This game has made our copies of EA active and Wii fit redundant.
The Zumba video game also wins on the cost side with a retail cost of just £25 on the Wii, as apposed to £50 for the Zumba DVD set or £5 per Zumba class.
All in all Zumba is a great way of keeping fit and a whole lot of fun to.
