Book Description

Sept. 10 2009



Created by celebrity fitness trainer Beto Perez, Zumba® combines fun, easy-to-follow dance steps with hot Latin beats to help you shed pounds and inches fast. Now the DVD and classes that have hooked millions are available in book format, with a complete workout program, fat-burning diet, as well as a DVD with a 5-minute instructional demo that shows the basic moves you'll need to learn plus 60 minutes worth of music to help you Zumba your way to the perfect body.

Using the principles of interval and resistance training, the simple dance and sculpting moves (inspired by the traditional cumbia, salsa, samba, and merengue) tone and shape your body. And because it burns 600 to 1,000 calories per hour, you don't have to restrict your meals to boring or bland-tasting diet foods. The Zumba diet begins with a 5-Day Express Diet to jump start weight loss (lose up to 9 lbs in 5 days) and then offers 14-day meal plans and recipes that target weight loss in the stomach and thighs. You'll find:
· Hot moves that make you feel like you're on the dance floor-not on the elliptical machine!

· Recipes for mouthwatering meals that boost your metabolism

· Dozens of workout combinations so you never get bored

· An exclusive jump-start program to get you ready for that big event next weekend

· An easy plan to help you keep up your progress and maintain the weight loss

So start moving, grooving and losing with Zumba today!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed... Feb. 10 2010
By A.M.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been attending Zumba classes off & on for the last 2 years. My current gym only offers the Zumba class once a week & I was looking to this book/DVD to help me get my Zumba "fix" for the rest of the week! Needless to say I was very disappointed. The book is good - it gives you the history & basic concepts behind Zumba (which you could probably look up on Wikipedia), breaks down the steps, and gives you diets to follow & overall dieting & nutrition tips. The DVD is great to break down & show you the 4 basic steps...but it does that in about 2-3mins. The 60mins of "routines" is nothing more than a blank screen counting down the time & playing different latin songs. The music is cool, but I was expecting to see someone doing the routine that I could follow. If I would have had my time back I would have taken my $20 & put it towards the $75 Zumba Fitness DVDs. But if you are brand new & looking for some basics & some dieting help then go for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Extreme disapointment Sept. 9 2011
By Annie
I saw Beto Perez on Dr.Oz, thought it was a fun way to exercise and I was motivated to order the product. It had such potential but it ended up being a music DVD with no instruction or demonstration of the steps/moves. It was accompanied by a book which had alot of information and all the steps were there on paper, but to learn dance steps you need to be able to see the dance moves with the music in order to learn them. It was very disapointing,as it could have been a wonderful tool to stay fit and have fun at the same time. If the DVD incoporated the music and demonstration of the steps it would have been a winner, flying off the shelves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Zumba: Ditch the Workout, Join the Party! Dec 29 2010
By Rita
well, the book is really great!! it gives alot of useful information, the only think I was really disapointed about was the DVD. I don't know, to me it sounded like there was a good workout DVD that came with it.. but it really only gives you basic steps, and you have to put the workout together. So this product is great if your looking for a diet, and a book to guide you through your weight loss, just don't expect it to give you a great workout video with it.
