Zumba has been a popular fitness trend for a few past years. Zumba is based on getting fit through dancing routines, which are both highly motivational and fun. The Zumba fitness DVD series is for beginner fitness levels.
Exhilaration Zumba DVD series include five DVDs and two “Zumba Toning Sticks,” which are maraca-like free weights. The DVD’s included offer workout sessions from 20 to 60 minutes. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect from each Zumba DVD:
Zumba Step By Step is an introduction and a fabulous how to guide for the rest of the DVDs. For that reason it would be the best choice to start with this particular DVD. It breaks each move down so a person can follow them in the rest of DVDs. This DVD would be especially appreciated by those more dance challenged. Dances include merengue, salsa, reggaeton, calypso, cumbia and even a sassy belly dance.
Zumba Activate is a 40-minute workout bringing it all together. It is used as the transition stage and prepares you for the faster and more challenging routines later on.
Zumba Exhilarate is 60-minute street dancing. The entire routine on this DVD is quite intense with dances like salsa, meringue, funk fusion, cumbia, tango, swing, and reggaeton.
Zumba Ripped is a 30-minute workout. Finally in this DVD, you get to use the weights that came with the DVDs. You can learn the moves quickly and get a beginner’s strength workout. The second part of Ripped involves a chair, where you are going to dance around it and sit on it. It’s an up and down routine for effective changing of intensity. If you want a complete full-body workout, go directly to this DVD.
Zumba 20 Minute Rush begins with a warm up and gives a chance to practice calypso, samba, meringue, flamenco, techno, and Charleston.. It’s a quick workout to get your blood pumping and your core activated. People who have tried it attest that it feels like an hour long workout.
Zumba Fitness Exhilarate Set is a perfect option for beginners who want to get a taste of what this style of training really is about.
