Zumba Fitness 2 for the Wii Review

I have always wanted to sign up for a Zumba class.  I watched one before and thought it looked like so much fun!  Unfortunately we didn't have the extra money for the class and I don't have very much time to leave the house for a couple of hours a week by myself.  I was so excited to give Zumba Fitness 2 for the Wii a try!  I love that with this game I can work out in my own home and can do it when I have free time (after the kids are in bed).  This game comes with a Zumba Fitness Belt for hands free play!  I love the music and it's so fun to dance myself into shape!  It really is a workout, but it's so much fun that it's not something I dread doing, like some other workout videos I have.

In this game you can track the calories that you burn and can create your own workouts!  Zumba Fitness 2 features great music from artists Pitbull, Nicole Scherzinger and more!  You can actually party yourself into shape with 20 different dance styles and 32 all new routines.  I promise that you won't get bored with these routines and this fun game!

we have zumba for kinect and I love it, its sooo much fun! I also think its neat because I "sort of" learn all these different dance routines, even though I am truly terrible at them right now.

These core workout will eventually counter each other that will lead to a balance which will remove abdominal fat. Aside from being considered as a quite powerful abdominal exercise, it can be also just a little fun due to the fact it involves additional movements than the crunches as well as the leg raising. It truly is also performed when lying flat on the floor, with your hands behind your head and your legs alternately doing the cycling on air.
