Does anyone know how many calories you burn doing Zumba for the Wii? I have been doing the 20 minute workouts.

Thanks in advance!

Where did you get the zumba off of? I've been trying to find it and cant!

Not srue how many calories you burn, but would love to know what you think of the game. I have the 2010 Jillian Michaels one, and the jury's still out for me.

I would love to know what you think of Zumba for the Wii. I've taken classes, and always leave drenched 40 minutes later, but would like to know if the wii experience is comparable.

I bought it last night...i'm soooo excited to try it out!

I am drenched after doing just 20 minutes of it! Its a great investment!

I burned 350 calories in those 24 minutes (including the cool down)...

I love the Wii for Zumba, although I wish they had better graphics... the phycodellic guys drives me crazy lol


In the 20 minutes I am sweating (don't know about drenched) but definatly out of breath and pooped! I love it.

I have taken classes and left soaking wet too...best workout ever! I was not sure how the game would compare but I love it! Many of the dances I already knew from class. It has been great this winter when I didn't want to get out in the cold to go to class.

I love my Zumba for the Wii! I have a heart rate monitor I've worn when I do it and if you put it on here as 'dancing aerobic' it's basically the same calories.

It's not out in the UK til March! If it's any good I'll get it! :))

I love my Wii Zumba game ... yesterday I did 45 minutes and burned about 360 calories according to my HRM. The calories burned varies but it's always fun. I love beating my last score and opening up new levels to choose from.

I want the Zumba for the wii, but I heard mixed reviews. Also I am worried that the belt band you wrap around yourself will not fit around me. We used to have the EA sports active game and that comes with a leg strap, but even that barely fit around my leg. And would burst off when I moved..

Hi! I have it too and love it! I agree with @mommyduke3 and the cal burn is very close if not right on to the "dancing aerobic" option.

I LOVE my Zumba for the Wii! Mine came with the belt and I have not had any trouble with the belt coming off during my workouts. I burn anywhere between 300-600 calories depending on how long and which level (beginner, intermediate, expert).

I found it on Friday night at Target and used it Saturday night. It was fun. I didn't have a working HRM then, so I don't know what the calorie burn was.
