I am wanting to get back into exercising, but with it being in the teens here and not wanting to spend money on a gym membership I am thinking about buying one of these games for my Wii. Anyone else use them? Are they effective?

I have Zumba for Wii and it’s a ton of fun. The only problem I have with it is the controller sometimes not being as accurate as I would likes when I’m dancing (I have the original Zumba fitness – I think they may have fixed it for Zumba 2). It’s effective when paired with other things. I wouldn’t say you’ll get fit by just doing that. I think actual Zumba classes in a gym would be more effective, but hey – it’s FUN. 🙂

I have Zumba and Zumba Core for the Wii and I love them! They are a lot of fun and I sweat a ton. I also do some light weights and core strengthening with it, but it’s excellent for cardio. Last year when I was super diligent with it I got nice and toned and combined with my fitness pal, I lost 15llbs, which is awesome for me.

I do Zumba on the wii as well. It’s a ton of fun, but I agree that it’s REALLY frustrating when the controller is being a pain and not picking everything up. I like to use it to burn calories and then do muscle toning exercises. That along with eating healthy eating seem to be slowly working!

@chelles07: YES!!!!!!!! I LOVE THEM!!!!! I have Zumba on Kinect and it is soooo fun. I also have Dance Central… It’s also fun but I don’t think I get quite as good of a workout according to my heart rate monitor.
