Zumba doesn't work for me :(
i know a lady that got GREAT results from it though...
Ok so ive been out of the forum for a while but i wanted to update this
posting. I recently got the My Fitness Coach Dance Workout (in the US
its called Golds Gym Dance Workout) and Jillian Michaels Ultimatum 2010.
Also as i was not happy with the song choices with Just Dance i grabbed
a copy of Black Eyed Peas Experience.
Ill start with the Dance
Workout to say its VERY entertaining and a real workout. Maybe it was
becuase it was hot and i was working out but the game made me sweat
ALOT. Mo sweat, Mo better :P There are plenty of mini games eg running,
rowing and there is cardio boxing and latin salsa in the dance area.
Nice choice of music including Lady GG's Just Dance which was nice.
5* (OH! It has a calorie counter too and matches it to food so you know what you have burnt).
Michaels... Were you ever in the army? I mean seriously this lady is
always busting my chops BUT that makes it more fun. I feel like im in a
boot camp and once im done ill be like a snake and 150lbs will just
slide on the floor like a pile of sludge LOL
The game includes MANY
workouts that use the Wii Balence board and the controller. The
exercises are things most people know of but the use of the remote in
the workout means she really pushes you for perfection (i have to lunge
deeper, stretch higher to get "green for good" showing on the screen -
thats a good sign!).
Now to the game that i am least impressed
with. If you have Zumba, Dance Workout and enjoy them you probably will
not enjoy the Black Eyed Peas game. the dances (like Just Dance) are
very basic and not chalenging or much of a workout. You end up needing
to catch your breath simply trying to follow the dances. Otherwise they
are very basic and probably only let you burn 10 calories?
songs on the game, i like 98% of them which is something i cant say
about the Just Dance game series. If you like Just Dance and need
something to bridge your stamina from zero to hero then this game is
I kinda stopped exercising for a little bit but going
to try and get something done today. That means Zumba 2 followed by My
Fitness [Golds Gym] Dance Workout and MAYBE Jillian if i have the
strength. I hope this post has helped people and TRY the Dance Workout
game it is REALLY good :)
Any other games i should try out? Drop a responce!
EA Active 2 is VERY good for weightloss, better than all the games
mentioned here IMO but if you combine with Zumba and other exercise you
can lose (I did so maybe someone else can too?) 14lbs in 1 Month. And
that is less fat and more muscle for a toned sleek shape :)
