Zumba Fitness: Exhilarate
I am always looking for new and fun ways to stay fit. The same old workout routine can get really boring, really fast. I cancelled my gym membership some time ago, so I like to incorporate as many different workout DVDs into my fitness regimen as possible. Not only does this keep it interesting, but it also works a variety of different muscle groups to keep your body in the best shape, as well!

As a person with little-to-NO rhythm whatsoever, I have been very apprehensive to try Zumba around real witnesses. I would much rather give it a whirl in the privacy of my own living room. Thank goodness, too, because I am very sure that it is apparent how much of a “white-girl” I am when I attempt these dance moves! I will say that the music in the DVD will get anyone up off the couch and moving for sure! Even if you can’t follow the moves right away, you will certainly want to try. It also helps that the instructors are extremely motivating, as well. With their high energy and killer bodies, you want to mimic their every move!
Out of this 7 disc set, I was able to choose one that I wanted to review. I chose Exhilarate: A 60-minute Zumba fitness-party in a music video setting. I am glad to see that when you purchase the full set, they include a step by step video. That must be extremely helpful to watch at first! I find it hard to keep up with my DVD and properly learn the moves. After doing it several times, I feel as though I am improving somewhat. Even if I am not getting the steps down accurately, I am still burning calories – that is for certain. I work up a good sweat and feel my muscles working. The best part is that I am having fun while doing it! The hour goes by quickly because it doesn’t feel like typical exercise. I am basically just dancing around. It’s a blast!
I am telling you, if my body can eventually look like the people on this video – consider me a huge fan of ZUMBA! I definitely plan on investing in the rest of this 7 disc set!
