How much floor space is needed? Hi - can anyone tell me please how much floor space I need in front of my TV to do this workout? Jul 3, 2011
You will need at least 8 feet by 8 feet to be able to do about everything. Some of the long moves can be cut down to whatever you have. You don't have to follow it exactly. The important thing is to just keep moving. I noticed on the Zumba Fitness Live DVD, something like over 300 people were there, and the room was so full. They each had a very little space to workout in, so they just did what they could. Each only had about a 4 foot space to work in, if that! Just don't have anything breakable within that area as you do some kicking - front and back as well as side to side. I wanted to cringe when viewing the fitness party; hands and feet were flying everywhere. I wondered if some people on the Zumba Fitness Live didn't get hit! Beto does a fantastic job at dancing like a madman in such a small space.
I am really interested in trying this Zumba DVD set, however, I am a full figured girl and wasn't sure if I could keep up with this particular set. Can anybody do it... or is it geared toward the more fit individuals? Dec 11, 2013
I think anyone can do it. Just give yourself a break and don't get frustrated if you can't do it exactly like they do. It is challenging but movement is better than no movement. Sometimes I just marched in place until I got more endurance. You can also do the shorter DVD until you feel more comfortable. I don't like the music on there so I play my own. Hope this helps.
Zumba DVD songs appropriate for kids? Are there lyrics to the songs on these DVDs and if so are they child appropriate? Nov 28, 2011
I didn't find anything wrong with the lyrics. Most are in spainsh anyway.I don't know about the wii game. Here's a link to listen to the music on the DVDS. http://www.zumba.com/pages/music-player.html or go to zumba.com and the player is bottom right.
Weight loss results? I was wondering how many of you are loosing weight, over what amount of time, and how many times a week do you Zumba? Oct 12, 2011
I started doing Zumba a few years ago with my girlfriends in a live setting after gaining 20 pounds in college. After taking Zumba classes for a few months, I noticed I was getting more toned- not necessarily losing weight. However, the workout inspired me to do more- running, horseback riding, weight training- and I now weigh ten pounds less than I did in high school (so I lost 30 pounds altogether). I am now a size 2/4. I workout regularly with Zumba, and when I can't get to the gym. It's a great great tool- the cardio aspect is amazing and you WILL sweat. I can promise that you'll have a lot more energy and that you will probably lose some weight, too! All you have to do is stick with it :) Good luck!
Finally recieved new zumba package will not play on any dvd player in my house just my computer. Of course, there is no room there. Can't believe this wan't mentioned or an issue we were made aware of before spending the money...
Hi, I pretty much had the same concern at first, but then it got me reading a lot of reviews from different customers. So to answer your question, someone on Youtube said that the Total Body Transformation has more Latin rhythms while Exhilarate Body Shaping System focuses more on hip hop. Also, the Total Body Transformation DVD Set teaches you the basic steps, which is quite important, if you ask me, and I believe the Exhilarate DVD set doesn't have it. Hope that helped. Happy Shopping! Samia

Total Body Transformation Guide: I am looking into buying this Zumba Total Body Transformation DVD set from Amazon, but I was wondering if it came with the Total Body Transformation Guide that comes with the set from Does any one know? Feb 5, 2011
it does come with a guide just not sure if its the exact same one. For one thing its not spiral its just a paper booklet. Its less than 100 pages and half English and half Spanish. (about 50 pages each) Has a What is Zumba page 2 pages of "Why you will love Zumba" Training Tips that tells u the obvious (read the booklet, start with basics) also mentions what type of shoes to wear, stay hydrated throughout workout, modify if needed etc. A total stretch guide that just explains stretching in just words no pictures (not sure if the book off TV version has more) Theres an exercise and food guide depending on what you want out of the program One is a 7 day "Groovin and Movin" using only the Basics and 20-min express dvds Now this is what I am wondering about as well the diff between TV version and this one The 10-day Accelerated Fat Loss Program which is about 11 pages. One page has the DVDs you use each day using all but Basics/Express DVD The other 10 pages is sample menus and food guides with recipes Now on the TV version they mention a "Calender" which to me seemed to imply u have someplace to record your workout and meals etc (its day by day yes but no place for notes or anything) They also imply its a "Free Bonus" in a separate booklet or DVD while in this Amazon version its just part of the regular booklet. Theres a Super Sculpted Section that has a 10-day plan using the Sculpt and Tone and Express DVDs Each workout plan includes a couple "Free Days" so its not 10 days of working out necessarily. The main dancers have a page that tells which move is their fave and why "Star Training Tips" and the last section is "Your Training Zone with an RPE chart. infomercials always make things sound like u are getting more than u actually are so I think it might be the same except for maybe the book binding A friend of mine said she ordered from TV so Im waiting for her let me know what exaclty her book is like and I will edit my post or add when I find out
What exactly is in this set? Description really doesn't say much. Does it include the shaking sticks and the other (2?) May 6, 2011
I just opened this set. I have: - 3 DVDs (Basics & 20-minutes express, Cardio Party, Sculp & Tone) - 1 DVD bonus (Zumba Fitness Live! & Flat ABS) - the booklet about 100 pages (English/Spanish) - 2 shaking sticks It didn't match the picture above unless you start to read discription very very carefully... I didn't and expected to get 7 DVDs. Probably in a few hours I will check the quality and will try them out.
