Who doesn’t love to dance? To feel the rhythm and let your body take over? I dislike exercising, a LOT but when I hear music, it makes me want to move my body – whether it’s a toe tapping, a head nodding or a full body shake down. A few years ago I was introduced to a dance called Zumba. Funny thing is, it’s considered exercise. I love that I can workout by dancing and even better, I can do it in the privacy of my own home with my Wii. For the past 11 months I’ve been using a Zumba game in my Wii and recently was introduced to a new “game” called Zumba Fitness World Party.
Escape on a fitness adventure around the world in Zumba® Fitness World Party. This culturally-rich dance-fitness experience embodies Zumba’s inspiring global movement that reaches more than 185 countries. You can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour as you immerse yourself in the movement and music of exotic destinations in this exhilarating at-home workout. Flaunt your fitness with 40+ high-energy routines, travel the globe in the new World Tour mode and work your body to the rhythms of today’s hottest artists including Lady Gaga, Pitbull and Daddy Yankee!
To use the game with your Wii Console, you need to wear a belt that holds the Wii remote on your hip. It picks up your movements and records your dance moves.
Each time you start the game you can, choose between the World Tour, a Full Class, Quick Play or My Zumba
Before you get started though, you’ll want to set up a profile in the game so it will track your progress
You can view a Weekly Report, your Goals, Levels, Awards and watch Bonus videos
If you’ve never done Zumba before, I recommend doing the dance step tutorials. You can choose the Style, Step and how fast you want them to show it to you.
There are 40 different games to choose from. Start off with Warm Ups, move to Low-Med or High Intensity and then a Cool Down.
As you move to the video, you can watch your progress on the screen.
Once completed, you earn awards. Some awards unlock videos.
Once you complete an activity, it provides you with a “report” – a Score, how many Calories you burned and percentage of how accurate your moves were.
Once you finish for the session, you’ll get a wrap up report of how much time you spent playing the game, calories burned and how many routines you finished.
Currently the game comes in the Wii, XBox 360, Wii U and XBox One.
