Zumba Fitness Review

Updated on December 28, 2016

Zumba Fitness DVD Set

I am a Zumba fanatic! Zumba is a fun, exciting, and effective Latin dance workout that is so much fun and honestly, I have never felt so good! If you are thinking about buying the Zumba Fitness DVD Set, read my review. I will let you know what I think of this workout and show you how to get it for a good price too!

Zumba Fitness Review

I received Zumba for my birthday from my family. I had been talking about wanting to buy it for a while and to my surprise I finally got it. I am not disappointed at all!

I workout regularly at the gym and I walk. At the gym I workout on the treadmill, or the elliptical. To put it bluntly, it's boring!! I love doing something that doesn't seem like exercise. I love to dance and when I hear Latin music, whether it's at a restaurant or just hearing someone play it on the radio, I can't help but move my hips around a little bit or tap my feet. It's just so natural to move to Latin music.

I thought, I wish there was something I could do to get in fantastic shape and not really feel like I am working out. I have tried some of the other DVD's and they where just a regimented routine workout. If you know what I mean, you just stand there and do the moves. Maybe a little bit of moving like the grapevine move or knees up, squats (yuck, when I am doing squats am I the only one groaning in pain, and can't wait for it to be over?) or side kicks or something but, not exciting. I would find myself getting bored very easily.

So, I started doing Zumba Wow!!! Let me say that again, Wow! This is so much fun! I feel like I am at a party with fun, entertaining, people. Sometimes you do feel like oh, these people are trained dancers, but you quickly forget about that and you just get into the dancing and you sweat! sweat! sweat!! Your heart rate goes up and you feel the excitement of just moving like a Spanish sexy dancer! I love it!! I even laugh while I am dancing! The Salsa moves are my favorite! Sometimes it's hard to understand Beto, who is the creator of Zumba but, you get used to his accent and there is a co-host Tanya who is easier to understand.

I consider myself a pretty good dancer anyway, and I am in fair shape. I can move my hips and I feel the music when I dance. But, I am no professional. I just feel the music and "Dance like no one is watching"! (I love that phrase by the way). If you are considering getting The Zumba Fitness Set I say do it! Don't worry if you can't dance, or if you don't think you can do the moves. Do something fun and get fit while you are doing it. You wont even realize that you are burning 500 to 1000 calories per hour. Yep, You can burn that much if you do Zumba for an hour! And you will sweat you butt off, literally! So get ready to finally have some fun while you work out!!

Update: It has been a few months since I received my Zumba Workout Set and I have to share with you that I am really starting to see a difference in the shape of my body. I am toning up and looking great. But, what I really wanted to tell you was that on the "Sculpt and Tone" DVD, if you can make it through to the African Beats section without passing out. LOL. The African Beats is by far my favorite section!! It's really a great workout and you are having the best time! I feel like I'm in Africa dancing with a tribe in their ceremonial dance.
