Zumba Exhilarate: the ultimate Zumba Dvd Experience ****** I must admit that before I decided to try these DVDs out my expectations ran pretty high. The concept had been known to me for awhile and I imagined that it would be quite a lot of fun to substitute my usual workout with some dancing routines and still achieve great fitness results. So I was positively bursting with excitement and anticipation when I finally got the chance to test it. Unfortunately though, the whole escapade ended in acute disappointment. I honestly did not like the Zumba program at all.... I gave all 3 of the DVDs a fair chance, but sadly I must report that none of them appealed to me in any way whatsoever. The steps were quite complicated and changed so quickly that it was actually hard to keep up. I couldn’t even get a hang of one thing and we were already doing something else entirely. The story repeated itself with the second, third, fourth routine until I was becoming somewhat exasperated and a tad resentful. I know what you are thinking: you can’t expect to pick everything up in one go woman, the more you do it the better you will get the hang of it. My answer to that: life is challenging enough without consciously overcomplicating it with some fancy exercising routines. If I can’t obtain an even rudimentary ability to execute a workout sequence after the first time, then it’s not worth the bother. Trying to keep up with the elaborate steps and weird moves really got in the way of just performing the exercises and getting the maximum benefit out of them for my body, which, if I’m not mistaken, is kind of the whole purpose here. I personally much prefer the traditional aerobic, with simpler routines where it’s all about working certain muscles in your body and the cute dancy motions are just there to add some additional enjoyment to the process rather than being the essence of it. If you are really into dancing and ideally have some good dancing experience, then you might indeed rather like this DVD. If you’re not inclined that way, this workout will be hard to follow without actually giving you the benefits that the traditional cardio/toning DVDs do. Many people say that Zumba is a great way to get you moving, but I just found it frustrating and unrewarding. The benefits acquired were certainly not worth the time invested. Maybe it would be more entertaining to do it in an actual class, where you can feed off of other participants’ energy and be comforted by the fact that they are even more confused and out of sync than you are. For now, however, I am much better off doing a Kathy Smith video, where I don’t have to commit 90% of my energy to attempting to figure out what on Earth the instructors are doing now, where does my foot go again and how do I keep from falling on my face while trying to coordinate the convulsive thrusts of my arms and legs. I got this item as a 3-DVD set, but unfortunately they don’t seem to be available in this configuration any more. Below I enclose the links to each of them separately, just in case you would like to give this exercise regimen a shot: 1. Rush: 20 min. workout to amp you up: This is a quick workout for the whole body. Please click the link to the right for details. 2. Exhilarate: the original full-length fitness-party experience: Working out while dancing. Please click the link to the right for details. 3. Mix: a rhythmic journey around the world: Dance steps from the most popular dances from different countries around the world. Please click the link to the right for details.
