Don’t worry about your score in the game, I do the Zumba and the Dance game on Kinect and I love it. I don’t necessarily keep up but it gets me moving. Sometimes I’ll do 2 of the Zumba routines just to extend the time of my work out. A lot of times it tells me to do something differently and I’m not great at knowing all of the moves but I just make sure I keep moving.

I just got the Gold’s Gym dance workout for the Wii and I like it alot.  It offers dance training and some kickboxing type training and some other games.  I felt like it gave me a much better workout than Wii Fit Plus or Just Dance.

I like the Kinect for Xbox 360 over the Wii and PS3 Move. I have tried/owned all three. The Move was promptly returned.

Great games for ARMS: Kinect Sports (boxing), Fruit Ninja Kinect

Great games for CARDIO: Dance Central, Dance Masters, Zumba Fitness

Great games for LEGS: Zumba Fitness, Kinect Adventures

 

Dance Central 2 and Just Dance 3 are coming out soon for Kinect too.

I have the Zumba for Wii, and I have found that I have to do TONS of hip movements in order to get it to recognize it. Which is good in the end, because I work harder! With that, I would just say, mimic the movements and forget about the score! All the score really gets you is different backgrounds, so no biggie!

I own Zumba for PS3, and I LOVE IT. I also own the Zumba Exhilarate DVD set.

The Move controller isn’t entirely acurate, so watching the little bar at the bottom drives me nuts. So I wear the Move controller on my wrist…and wiggle it if it doesn’t stay green.

It helps. It’s not really cheating, because I am still giving it my all and working out really hard.  🙂
