ZUMBA FITNESS Party on the Go Exhilarate Workout Set w/ Tote Bag
First off, I purchased this mainly for the bag, and I was not disappointed.. The bag is huge and the colors are vibrant. Really, the colors on everything are bright and beautiful.
I gave it 3 stars because a couple of the items I was looking forward to just aren't practical. The water bottle is so appealing to the eye, but it takes forever to screw the lid off. So imagine doing a workout and you want to take a swig of water real quick ... NOT happening with this water bottle. Even my 8 yr old noticed. Even while on the elliptical, it's pretty annoying the amount of work you need to do to take a quick drink. Also, the shaker weights are so light, I can't imagine using them at my Zumba Toning class. I use upwards of 5lbs, these puny things won't tone anything of mine. But they are so much fun so maybe I will use them for my warm up..
I have yet to use the DVD's but I'm sure they will come in handy at some point.
love my purchase
The best workout ever .my daughter and workout together and she has so much fun.
Not a good value
I like the music and I like the type of exercise but the DVDs in this set are repetitive and boring. For $150 (with tax and shipping), I expected more. Therefore, this set is not a good value for me. Back it goes.
Skeptic... proved wrong!
When I saw this on air it took me a couple years to actually consider buying it. I got P90x, an aeropilates machine, tons of other workout dvds including other dance workouts, but they were either too hard, or not interesting enough on their own. My Zumba order (this set) arrived today, and I was amazed to find that I could do a lot of the stuff on the step-by-step dvd with no problem the first time around. There was one move in the first dance that I had to repeat a few times to get it, but I finally felt some accomplishment when it came to dancing. That little towel is definitely meant for sweat, and you'll sweat a lot just learning the basic moves! What they say is true though, it is definitely fun right from the beginning. I can easily see myself spending a lot of time doing this consistently, and now I want the clothes and to take some classes in the future! I'm already hooked and it's only been about an hour! I was a ballerina and a tap dancer but never did jazz or any latin dancing so I thought my classical dance background would get in the way or that I'd have two left feet because it had been so long since I did ANY dance, but this is so easy, and it makes you want to look for a latin dance club to show off your moves! I'm 26 and have about 50 lbs to lose, and I can pretty much already tell that this is going to get me there before summer, especially with the other things I'm doing. I don't know if I could get my mom to do this program, but it would be great if I could to keep her healthy.
DANCE YOURSELF TO A FABULOUS BODY!
I purchased this workout Set over a year ago?
And, I have FUN, FUN, FUN!
I am a "outdoorsy" person; thus, gyms are NOT for me!
I do Pilates and yoga; but, when I cannot sit still, which is most of the time, I Zumba myself to oblivion!
As a matter of fact, I have so much fun dancing that I lose track of time and inches at the same time!
Now, my besties join me, at home, to Zumba, because it is, absolutely, contagious!
We get to bond, and catch up, while losing weight and fat.
It is fabulous and the best exercise ever!
I get bored easily and this workout is as it claims "exhilarating,' specially when one is sharing such a healthy time with the girls!
I'm praying for it to come back!!!!
I HAVE ALL THE ZUMBA STUFF, THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST PLEASE QVC BRING IT BACK, PLEASE!!!!!
I absolutely love this set I do it six days a week its been about a month and two weeks and have lost almost twenty pounds with a good diet. You just have too push yourself and workhard about the voice overs I do not see a problem with them cause you can easily follow what they are doing it was hard at first and its taking time to learn more moves than others but im trying my best and its paying off.
Not sure I'm sold on this workout
I asked for this workout program for Christmas and was hopeful to give my body a rest from running and high impact programs like Insanity. I just completed the 10-day program and did lose a few pounds. However, I'm still not certain this program can give me the bikini body I'm looking for. I'm 42 and really have to work to keep the weight off my stomach and thighs.
These disks are very long--most being 60 minutes and I'm just not convinced it's the best use of my time. I like the programs and have easily picked up the steps, but I don't sweat a lot so I'm not sure the cardio is enough for me. However, I'm going to keep using this program for at least another month and will see where my results go.
I understand some of the comments about the voice overs on the disks. However, I didn't think it really impacted the overall experience. Maybe it would be a bigger deal to someone used to taking live classes, however, I'm used to pushing play on my DVD so I didn't find it that distracting.
I have never done Zumba before but I wanted to try something different so I finally decided to purchase this set and I'm glad I did! It is really fun and I love that the first disc shows you the moves step by step. I also really like the bag and water bottle.
The workout is fun and a change of pace from other things on the market! Love the Bag and Bottle, which are so usable for other things!
The original Zumba set was awesome! It really set the bar for subsequent sets. I was so disappointed after I figured out that it wasn't my dvd's audio settings malfunctioning but were voice overs. I could not get through the first disc's workout because it cheapened the experience for me. It felt like I was watching a foreign film with the audio that's off and low budgeted. The set design and the music were great. However, it's not like the first set that I love.
Well, I have done Zumba Gold for a few months where I live and thought this would be a good idea for home use. Wrong! Mine was new (never opended) and the first DVD I played skipped and skipped and skipped!!! I guess because they come in cardboard instead of the traditional plastic holders, sigh! This would have been a good value IF the discs worked! I will never ever try something like this again. Back it goes IF I can get it re-packed, ugh!!! So dissappointed, sorry QVC this company sent you a lemon.
