Dance Yourself into Shape with Zumba
Ditch your standard workout and bring a Zumba party right into your living room with Zumba Fitness for Xbox 360. Zumba Fitness is a program based on the national dance-based exercise craze, Zumba. The secret of Zumba is its pairing of red-hot international dance steps with sexy Latin music which blend together to create an addictively fun, yet challenging exercise party that is all about movement. The popularity of Zumba has led to packed gyms and community centers all around the country, but now you and your workout/dance partners can join the party at home via your Xbox 360 and attached Kinect sensor.
Zumba Fitness uses the motion-sensing capabilities of the Kinect sensor to bring the steamy, calorie-burning moves of Zumba to the Xbox 360. The game's primary play mechanic is the replication by player(s) in real-time of dance moves that are demonstrated by an on-screen virtual instructor. The body mapping capabilities of Microsoft Kinect allows this to occur without the need for a controller, unlike other versions of the game. On-screen color changes of a representation of the player in-game alerts you to the accuracy of your moves, while a countdown clock keeps you constantly updated on the time remaining in the routine. Zumba Fitness also includes fan favorite Zumba instructors Tanya, Gina and Zumba's creator Beto, who together guide you through more than 30 routines that will make you forget you are even exercising. Together with four-player support — both locally and online — that allows friends to join in the workout, and an ever-present, infectious Latin groove, players have all that they need to dance the weight off and have a blast doing it.
