Set to the sounds of Latin music and made up of exercise routines that are extremely easy to follow the Zumba Fitness DVD Set says that it can help you dance the weight off. You will be listening to beats from meringue, cumbia, salsa and samba just to mention a few. At the same time you will be working off the pounds and getting into shape.
Led by "Beto" Perez, a celebrity fitness trainer, you will find yourself pounding through the entire six workouts across a total of four DVDs. There are also several mini workouts included with the set including an abdominal, a “cardio party,” a sculpting, a basics and an express workout. Many of the steps to the workouts are based on the various dance steps.
What Is Zumba Fitness?
The biggest consensus among customers who have purchased the Zumba Fitness DVD set is that you have to be dressed correctly if you want to get the most out of the workout. Customers suggest that you definitely wear shoes made for dancing such as a hip-hop style tennis shoe. Also, the clothes should be somewhat loose allowing you to move around freely. The materials should be light so that you do not have to worry about excessive sweating.
Who Does the Training?
While the claim is that you will receive your training from the king of Zumba fitness, Beto, there is another side. Many customers report that most of the training actually comes from the female trainers that are on the video working out along side Beto. This is not necessarily a deal breaker as they do so under his direction, but it is a bit misleading when you think that you should be receiving all your training from Beto.
Keeping the Beat
There is a bit of an issue with one part of the workout that could be a potential deal breaker for some people. The exercises themselves change at a rather rapid pace. Instead of staying on a particular step for up to 35+ beats they change at about 18 beats. This can be too hard for some people to pick up without having a great deal of practice. It can also lead to too little emphasis on one area that needs work.
Enjoy the Mood
No matter what the argument either for or against the workout there is one point on which most everyone agrees. The music itself is quite lively and extremely enjoyable. Some customers claim that it can even help out on the dance floor as it gives you the basic steps to many Latin dances. No matter how well you know the dances with enough practice you will be able to pick the routines up with little to no problem.
All in all most customers agree that the workout you get with the Zumba Fitness Total Body Transformation System DVD set is well worth what you pay for it. Make sure that you have plenty of room to move around and that there are no breakable objects sitting on shelves waiting to vibrate off as things can get to moving when you start working out.
