Great, fun workout!

My hubby just bought this for me to get back in shape after having my fifth baby. It's a very good workout, and very customizable to your abilities. My kids like to try it, my 9yo daughter does pretty well. There are some moves that I feel are too sexy for my kids to do in public at parties or whatever, but at home with just us it's o.k. Some of the lyrics are suggestive and inappropriate, but I honestly haven't listened to them much, I'm too busy trying to stay in step. I seriously didn't know the one song says anything about unhooking a bra. I think for older kids-adults it's a great, fun workout.

Zumba Fitness 2 makes a lot of improvements over the original Zumba Fitness title. Among the enhancements are a significantly improved training mode, which allows players to take the steps slowly until they get the hang of it. Additionally, the on-screen instructors have been modeled much more clearly, making it a seamless process to follow their moves and learn the dance steps. With a wide selection of songs, most players will easily find a track or two that they like well enough to play over and over again, but all of the songs are catchy and rhythmic and provide a fun workout routine. In short, this new entry in the Zumba Fitness franchise takes it to the next level and comes easily recommended.
