The first thing to know about Zumba Fitness Core for Wii is that it's really "Zumba Fitness 3". Supposedly, the word "Core" in the title connotes that this version of the game focuses on your abs, but the choreography seemed to me no different than what you'll find in earlier versions or standard Zumba classes. My impression is that the name was probably more of a marketing move than anything else; they could have called it "Zumba Fitness Cardio" and no one would have known the difference.

In any case, just as with the previous versions of Zumba Fitness for Wii, you'll need a belt to hold your Wii remote as you dance. There is a belt that comes packaged in the box, but if you want to play with multiple players (the game supports up to 4), each player will need their own belt. You really don't need to buy additional belts from Majesco; any belt will do as long as you can tighten it enough to securely hold your Wii remote at your waist level.

One very, very important thing to remember is that the Wii remote needs to be positioned with the buttons facing out (towards the TV) and the remote right-side up vs. upside-down (i.e., with the A button on top). If you stick your remote in the belt the intuitive way (upside down), the game won't track you at all. There was so much confusion about this in past versions that this time they've included a little video on it to show the right way to do it.

The first thing you do is set up your profile. Strangely, it doesn't let you use your balance board to detect your weight. Worse, you input your weight in the most painful way possible--by starting at about 100 pounds and pressing the button for what feel like an eternity (in my case at least) to get to your actual weight.

Note: I purchased Zumba Core for use with my middle school physical education classes. We use a ceiling projector so everyone (as many as 46) can follow along.

The 3rd Zumba in the last three years follows right along with the first two with some improvements. The workout program now has 40 tracks covering many styles of dance.

For my classes today, I set up a custom workout with 8 songs that took around 35 minutes:

1. Sugar Plum fairy (Warm-up) - Terrific rendition of the famous nutcracker song that threw in lots of ballet. My students were surprised at first, but actually loved it. Great choreography!

2. Vamos a La Pista - Excellent latin style dance with good choreopgraphy.

3. Kazachok in Habana - A russian style dance with a little salsa mixed in. Again, students were surprised with it, but with lots of clapping, they liked it.

4. Roll Wid Di Don - Raggaeton style from the artist who sung Temperature. My students liked this one as well.

5. La Bomba - Latin style, good choreography with excellent core moves.

6. Quiebra - TERRIFIC song and probably the most intense cardio and core workout in Zumba history. This one will make you sweat!

7. Nyana - Electronic music that has easy to follow aerobic style moves. Well liked but most suited as a warm-up.

8. Jammin (cool down) - My students absolutely LOVED cooling down to Bob Marley's Jammin. Lots of stretches!

Some minor complaints:

1. I miss the first Zumba where the dancers were in "shadow form" It makes me a tad uncomfortable with some of the Zumba dancers from 2 and 3 wearing bikini tops. I like the tank tops much better.

2. A few routines I scanned before my first class had a lot of hip gyrations.

Holy cow! What a great and FUN workout. I am 59 and having a blast with this. There is a huge selection of workouts and the music is outstanding. Really gets you going. It is tough though. Burns a a lot of calories in a short time. I highly recommend this. Oh, I have a bad lower back but this workout doesn't hurt.

I am hesitant to go to a live Zumba class because I'm not in great shape, and I've heard our local teacher starts out at a high skill level, so I thought I'd try it on Wii first. A friend lent me a previous Zumba game, which I enjoyed, so I then purchased this one, which I like even more!

The first thing to do is go through the little tutorial that shows you the various steps you will encounter, at slow and fast speeds. There's no need to memorize the moves, but it lets you know what to expect. There are 3 lengths of "classes", around 25 minutes, 45 minutes, and 60 minutes. After about a month of working out with this game 3-4 times a week (starting from a low fitness level), I can now easily do the 25 minute classes, and I can finish the 45 minute class, though it gets tough toward the end!

These workouts really get your heart rate up, and they're pretty fun! I get bored easily and don't want to sit on an exercise bike or walk on a treadmill for my cardio, so being able to do these Zumba routines in the comfort of my own home is just great.

There are multiple choreographers, and they're motion-captured, so you're watching an animated version of a real person on screen (like the way they filmed 'Avatar'). I like this, because the movements on-screen are more natural. Each choreographer has their own style, and there are little prompts to let you know what they're going to do next. I find one girl's moves to be more difficult than the others, but you experience all of the choreographers in a class, so you'll get a range of styles and difficulty, which I enjoy.
