I mentioned in a previous Wii dance game post how much I love to dance.  Well, here is another dance game that will get you moving and burning lots of calories!

Zumba® Fitness 2 gets players moving with Zumba creator Beto and international celebrity instructors Tanya Beardsley and Gina Grant as they guide players through exhilarating choreography that spans 32 sizzling new tracks and 24 different international dance styles. Whether playing in Single Song, Full Class or Zumba Party mode that supports up to four dancers, players will have a blast with this unique dance fitness experience that shapes, tones and transforms their bodies and makes them forget they’re even exercising.

Zumba is the latest craze to sweep the fitness world.  It is no wonder, too!  Zumba gives you an awesome cardio workout while toning your core and strengthening your arms and legs, not to mention it is fun!

Zumba Fitness 2 has several features that I absolutely love.  First, you create a personal profile that tracks you Zumba Fitness progress.  It not only tracks your accuracy on the dances you do, but it also tracks your calories burned and your weight (the game doesn’t weigh you, you do that yourself).  Then, if you are a beginning dancer you can go into the training mode and learn the individual dance moves.  I highly recommend this as it will help you from becoming super frustrated during the dance workouts.  When you feel ready you can either choose to do single dances rated by how intense the routine is, or you can choose a complete workout (rated by the length of the workout).

Before I tried Zumba Fitness 2 for Wii I thought, meh, I’m not much of a latin dancer.  It is fast paced dancing, and for many people, myself included, it is hard to really loosen up and get the Latin feel.  Well, I don’t know if the game was designed to make me feel better about my skills or if I had given myself too little credit.  The first time I tried Zumba Fitness 2 I did a few of the training sessions and brushed up on some salsa moves and then went right into a low intensity dance.  I scored 4 out of 5 stars with an 80% accuracy.  Not bad so I tried a medium intensity dance.  Again, 4 out of 5 stars with 80% accuracy!  Maybe the game is just getting me psyched up enough so I’ll make Zumba 2 part of my daily routine, LOL.

I Zumba’ed on my own–I invited my husband to zumba with me but he declined :)–but there is a multi-player mode that can accommodate up to 4 players.  I’m planning on inviting a friend and her daughter over to zumba with me.  That should be fun!

Zumba Fitness 2 is currently available to own on Wii and can be purchased on Amazon.com and other local and online retailers.

  1. It sounds like you had fun! I wonder if I'm coordinated enough to do it!
  2. I have this game and love it!
  3. I've heard amazing things about Zumba classes. When I recover from my knee injury I really want to try something like this!
  4. As I said before- I would love this a lot. Great work out and I will be doing it every single day. Zumba is my favorite dance :)
  5. I am planning to buy this for myself. I understand it comes with a belt for Wii controller. How do play with multi players?
  6. I have a quick question. I have Zumba 2 and I LOVE it, the only problem that I am having is that the meter that would tell me if i'm doing a nice job has never really worked. If I do it Zumba 2 for a 5 days straight maybe 1 song for the first few minutes it will tell me "nice" and never again. For example the picture above where it says, "zumba," hot," "nice,"What am I doing wrong?? Any advice
  7. On Wii. For example I have Biggest Loser also on Wii and it lets me know if I'm doing it correctly with the accuracy.
  8. i have not got any stars yet which is really annoying me as on zumba 1 i was a pro.
  9. Just to give an update. I got so mad and frustrated with the remote that i traded it in my Wii for an Xbox Kinet and it works wonders. I dont need a remote. All i need is my body movements and i LOVE it.
    • I'm glad that you found something that works. I mean, the Wii can only be so accurate when it is just reading your movements from the remote in your belt. I've actually been talking to my husband about getting a kinect because there is so much more you can do--so many more active games--and it's much more accurate.
      • Amy yes it is more accurate and i think even better. I know i was losing weight with the Wii but it was just not showing that i was doing anything and that bothered me. So happy i made the change : )
  10. I love my Zumba and Zumba 2. On my Zumba 2 I am unable to get any stars. The belt around the hips doesn't stay around the hips. I have it in my hand. I do all the moves right. Very frustrating.
