Can YOU Shake Your Booty? Wii Zumba 2

I can!
And with a little more practice (okay, maybe a LOT more), I might look skilled while doing it.
So, you'd have to live under a rock to not know about the wave of popularity that Zumba has recently ridden. But maybe, like me, you're not keen to shake your moneymaker (and fall out from exhaustion or smack someone next to you with the errant hand) in front of an audience. That's where the Wii comes in.

With Wii Zumba 2, you can have loads of fun, get heart-pounding exercise, and sweat off some pounds while tightening up the parts of you that ought NOT be jiggly. And you can do it without an audience. Aaaaand, you can learn how to dance like a Latin star if you apply yourself. Bonus!
Oh, and you don't have pay for ongoing classes, babysitters, nor gas to drive to classes, nor fancy workout wear (unless you just want to!). These are definite positives in a harsh economy where many of us don't have a dime to spare.

Another positive: for the cost of one game, multiple people can take advantage of it, while lessons would require you to pay for each participant. So the family could get involved. I learned quickly that my daughter likes to Zumba. So it's an easy way to get the kids to exercise!

And yes, if you follow the on-screen example, you will really get a workout. There are different intensity levels, so you can work your way up. There's even a tutorial to learn the basic moves.

There are tons of fun songs, and as you do better & better, you unlock new songs.
One thing to beware: this game is rated "T" because of mild lyrics. So, you might hear a few "iffy" lyrics on some songs. I haven't heard anything that bad so far, but I haven't heard every song, either. If you find a song you don't like, you could always skip it.

Houseparty.com sent me a Zumba 2 game for Wii , which includes 1 hip belt, along with 3 extra hip belts to party with. I also received some coupons for $5 off Zumba 2 at GameStop (exp 11/29/11), coupons for free 7-day pass to Zumba classes at participating 24 Hour Fitness clubs, no strings attached, and coupons for 30% off Zumba apparel and accessories over $99 at Zumba.com (exp 6/20/12).

We had a lot of fun at my Zumba 2 House Party. I do have some of the coupons left over.
If you'd like some, please comment below. You must be a GFC follower.
Be sure to include your email addy in the comment so I can email you for the address you want me to send them to.
If you have a Zumba 2 tell us what you think about it.

Weight loss is one of the common peblems mostly among women. Recently online pharmacies are doing a good job by selling all kinds of drugs via the internet. However, when buying drugs from an online pharmacy one has to have a sense of good judgement. Being physically active has many benefits. Some of those benefits described by NEHB are "better health, improved fitness, better posture and balance, weight control, stronger muscles and bones, more energy, relaxation and better sleep, healthy cholesterol levels." In addition, exercise reduces depression and anxiety, strengthens the heart, and provides social outlets" (N.E.H.B.). Multiple people can enjoy most physical activities at the same time. This will allow children to have ways of meeting new people and increasing their social life as well. Also it is a way of finding others with the same interests as they have. When people carry an excess baggage, they tend to get slowed down. Instead of getting ahead, they tend to get left behind because what the things the things that they have to carry with them are getting in the way of speeding things up. In the same way, this is also how people get when they are fat. Indeed, fats are a heavy burden; this goes literally and figuratively. When an individual is trapped inside a body that is laden with fats, he or she has to bear with the physical humiliation of becoming and obese. Or worse, he or she may be subject to the health concerns that come with being overweight. Obesity is characterized with an overweight person that has a body mass index or BMI that exceeds to 30.

My best friend LOVES zumba! She is addicted to it! So I know she definitely does not have this! I will definitely recommend this to her. So she if cant get out to do it, she can do it in her home!

I always thought the only reasons I would want a Wii is for the exercise programs or sword fighting games (which sounds a bit dangerous). I've learned some great moves for my workouts from watching some Zumba routines. I love dancing!
