This set comes with a total of five DVDs (for some reason, the first four are packaged together, and the fifth is in a separate sleeve) plus several extras, including a Program Guide, a Nutrition Guide, and "Sole Control" wraps which slip over your shoes. I will break down each of these aspects of the program in turn.
This includes "Quick Start," the tutorial for learning all the basic Zumba moves, and "20 Minute Express," a workout that allows practice of those moves. Quick Start--which, at 37 minutes, is not so quick--is taught alternately by Hermann and Loretta. The moves included are Merengue, Beto Shuffle, Mambo, Cumbia, Reggaeton, and Salsa. The Express workout is led by Nick and consists of 5 total segments, each about 4 minutes long. Unfortunately, instead of just allowing you to learn the moves from the tutorial, there are A LOT of new moves thrown in. This is the ONLY dance routine that is taught live rather than voiceover.
This is the "Super Cardio Dance Party," which claims to "Burn up to 1,000 Calories"--frankly, I don't think this is possible with ANY 55-minute workout! Like all of the workouts in this set, this routine is a mix of dance intervals and cardio bursts. Kass introduces the workout, and she alternates teaching with Steve and Riccardo. ("Zumbo Twins" Alicia and Tania are the background exercisers.) There is an odd effect throughout this workout where the camera will go to all black & white with neon green only; I found this distracting.
This "Zumba Max" workout is led by Zumba founder Beto Perez, although he does have twins Alicia and Tania step in for the second warm-up segment. I found Beto's cuing to be a definite improvement over all of the other instructors, as he provides more information about how to perform the movements, the importance of what you are stretching, etc. The music is also much more varied in this routine, ranging from the traditional cumbia and Latin to Oriental/Latin fusion, Bhangra, and even Rock & Roll.
"Latin Burst" is a shorter routine (32 minutes), but it follows the exact same format as all the others--i.e., a series of dance cardio intervals with brief cardio bursts to raise the heart rate. Steve leads this one (via voiceover) with background exercisers Carol and Jules (showing modifications). Each segment lasts about five minutes and focuses on the following areas: 1) merengue, 2) reggaeton, 3) boola, 4) Zumba song, 5) salsa, 6) 4-minute flowing cool-down (Steve alone) with stretches for hamstrings, calves, glutes, and triceps.
In this final, separate DVD, "Global Burst: Cardio Interval Workout," Steve is again leading with Carol and Jules assisting, and it is almost exactly the same as the Latin Burst routine except for the longer length (37 minutes). In fact, Global Burst begins with the same 4-minute warm-up from Latin Burst. The segments which follow include emphasis on Mexican, African, samba, jump rope, Indian flavor, Brazilian samba, and finally, a 4-minute cool-down again featuring Steve on his own.
SOLE CONTROL WRAPS
These wraps slip over your shoes. They are designed to "increase your range of movement and allow you to slide, pivot and turn with ease." Frankly, I found them to be a bit of a gimmick. They did not seem to help me very much at all (on carpet). If you do find something like this to be necessary, you could either 1) make wraps yourself by cutting up a pair of old nylon socks, or 2) simply exercise in socks instead.
I do think this is nicely done. First, two separate 4-week workout calendars are offered, one for "Body Slimming" and the second for "Maximum Burn" (although it would have been even better to have these on a nice laminated card rather than in a paper booklet). The guide also does a good job of explaining rate of perceived exertion (RPE), to use when finding an ideal training zone. Finally, eight total stretches are included for muscle recovery (although I would have preferred to see these on one of the DVDs--why not put them on DVD #1?)
I haven't tried any of the recipes, but there appears to be a nice variety, including some vegetarian options. However, I can NOT recommend the meal plan, which provides calorie counts in an unsafe range. On Page 5 of the guide, it specifically states "Women who are looking to lose weight should aim to eat between 1,400 and 1,600 calories, while men should aim for 1,800 to 2,000 calories per day." Yet in the "Everyday Eating Plan," EVERY SINGLE DAY adds up to well under this range (<1250 calories); even when adding the suggestions for snacks, the totals are still <1400 calories per day. The "7-Day Rapid Results" plan is even worse, with most days having dangerous low totals of 900-1000 calories per day.
In summary, here's what I liked/didn't like about this set:
What I liked:
*All DVDs include an English or Spanish language option.
*All DVDs include a "Verbal Cues On" or "Verbal Cues Off" option. (However, I also found this to be somewhat of a negative as described below).
*The Program Guide. I thought this was fairly well-done overall.
What I didn't like:
*The music. Virtually all of the songs featured auto-tune as well as self-reference to "Zumba" over and over again.
*The instructors. As noted above, Beto was okay, but I particularly disliked Steve, who spent more time preening for the cameras (and his two female background exercisers) than cuing the workout. Which brings me to...
*The cuing. I know it is Zumba's "thing" to cue non-verbally. However, these DVDs have a verbal cuing option, so when I selected that, I expected verbal cues, NOT to have the instructor say "watch my eyes" or to be moving around the set. I also hated, HATED the voiceover cuing. I don't mind voiceover for many types of fitness DVDs, but it just does not seem to work well for dance routines.
*The Nutrition Guide. As noted above, I found the daily calorie recommendations dangerous, and I think it was shameful and irresponsible to have this published.
Clearly, I disliked more than I liked. I simply did not find these routines enjoyable or easy-to-follow despite the fact that I have and enjoy other dance fitness workouts. I do NOT think that this set would be appropriate for beginners, who would likely become very easily frustrated by the lack of verbal cues as well as the complexity of the cardio moves. This DVD set is probably best suited to those who take Zumba classes and/or who already own other Zumba DVDs.
