ZUMBA Fitness Core 4 Week Challenge

By now you must have heard of an exercise craze called Zumba, right? You may know someone that does it or maybe you have done it. I've taken a few classes and I have to admit its exhilarating. The high paced, up beat music make for an enthusiastic time! So when I was given the opportunity to take the Zumba Fitness Core 4 Week Challenge on Xbox Kinect, I jumped at the chance!

Game Overview
Get ready to rock your core! Zumba® Fitness Core is the latest release in the best-selling video
game franchise that has sold more than eight million players on the exhilarating Zumba® Fitness
interactive workout. As the only fitness game that targets your core, Zumba® Fitness Core
is specifically designed to deliver the tight and toned abs that women crave. This energizing
dance-fitness party features fresh music and choreography, new dance styles and fitness
features, plus cool new venues and celebrity Zumba® instructors who can help you reach your
personal goals as you dance your way towards that sexy six pack!

Week 1 - November 5-11
So I have to say that I was a bit rusty. I figured since I did Zumba before, I should be almost like a pro! So I went for the high intensity class first. Umm yea no! I am so the amateur! Just because this is a video game, doesn't mean its any less easier than a real class. The music is awesome as expected. There are a few that don't quite get me motivated as much, but I really prefer the Latin songs. My son even tried doing some moves with me but then just monitored my avatar to make sure I was hitting all the moves correctly. It was very intense so I now know to start off on the lower level first. I need to build up my stamina since I am out of shape.
I look forward to the next 3 weeks especially since Thanksgiving will be near the end of it. I will definitely need to Zumba that turkey off my waist! 

After a week of doing Zumba, I haven't noticed much change yet pertaining to weight. However I do see myself having more motivation and energy. I'm not as tired as I normally am after working all day. I have been using it in the evening so I may try to switch it to the morning before I head out to work. We'll see if it makes a big difference!

You can follow me along my journey via Twitter using Hastag #ZumbaFitnessCore. If you're using the game too then share your progress with me!

Disclosure: I received a video game to facilitate this review & the 4 week challenge. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

I wonder if I'm coordinated enough to even hang in there with this game.

Everyone I know who has ever tried Zumba has really enjoyed it. It may be something I look into once I'm ready to shed any baby weight.

I have heard of Zumba but never tried it. It may be good for me. I love anything high energy and I need something to keep me motivated!
