Zumba DVD's vs Zumba Wii

I go to Zumba classes 3-4x/week and LOVE them. I've been thinking about getting either the DVD's or Zumba for Wii for those times when I can't make it to class. I'm looking for recommendations on which way to go. At class I've got most of the routines down pretty well and now am trying to concentrate on really using my muscles correctly so I am getting the max benefit.

    Hi! I had both, and I would say the Wii game is better...though I admit I love the classes I go to so much that I feel like neither of these come close to comparing!

    I have Zumba Wii. I do not have time to go to classes. If you can motivate yourself, go with the Wii.

    I think that both are great, but the DVD has toning which is AWESOME, and you get the fun toning sticks that come with it!!

    I haven't done any workouts with videos, but I think the wii version at least keeps you accountable for the proper movements.

    I've never played the Zumba for the Wii, I have both Zumba games for the Kinect and I love them. I am sure the Wii would be just as good though. I like the games because they keep me motivated, the DVD's probably wouldn't keep me as motivated... :)

    Does the wii version include any modifications for fat old ladies?

    I haven't tried the DVD's yet, but I really like the first game for the Wii. :smile: I haven't tried the second one, yet.

    I go to classes as well and nothing will compare however, I have tried both (DVD's and Wii) and I like the Wii better.

    I have only done it on the Wii...I love it...It has a progress tracker...It keeps track of your weight, time played and calories burned. I have the Zumba 2 and it came with the belt to hold the remote and it gives you stars for doing the moves right, so its a challenge to get it to 5 stars on each dance. I am an older lady and I just do what I can...the harder dances with the jumping and really fast moves leaves me in the dust but I do the best I can and it gets my heart pumping and my body sweating so that has to be good!

    I have Zumba for the Kinect. It took me a while before I got the moves down, but it's totally worth it.
  • I have both and I like both a lot. I have the Zumba core for wii and it is pretty fast pace. Also for ladies who posted about being older, my mom is doing Zumba gold. I have done it a couple times and it is a really good workout!!

    also can I suggest searching on youtube and make your own zumba class playlist, it's a great idea as well......... here's an example http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/866590-fun-free-at-home-zumba-workout
  • I have just brought zumba wii core and its harder than the first two but I like all of them , like others have said I like how it keeps track of your progress

    ^This! :happy: Just got Zumba Core for the Wii and I love it so much more than the original! Better cues to the dance moves, and I'm a sucker for Bollywood music, haha.
