Product Review: Zumba Fitness Exhilarate DVD Set.

I remember hearing from my friend after she give birth she told me about these Zumba dance and I was really curious about it and there is a time she invite me to try and it really burns calories.

So last Saturday my husband saw this Zumba fitness exhilarate DVD set because he knows I love Zumba and  I'm just watching it in you tube. I bought these Zumba DVD set around 50 euro it's quite expensive but it really worth the price.



In the box: Five DVDs, a set of two 1-pound toning sticks, Program Guide with instructions on how to use the DVD, plus an optional meal plan. It really amazing because they have these recipes if you really want a healthy intake breakfast-dinner.


1. Step by Step 
Zumba's Step by Step workout is approximately 60 minutes in length and it is led by Gina Grant and Tanya Beardsley.


While this DVD is quite a bit instructional as Gina and Tanya take you slowly through the different rhythms (breaking down each move), when the tempo picks up you do feel as if you are getting a workout. However, there is a lot of stopping and starting.

2.Zumba Exhilarate Activate

The description of this workout states that it is “A 45-minute, easy to follow class to get you started.” i find does steps are really easy to follow and they have several list of songs like. 

Pegadita – Warm up – Merengue
La Cancion Del Bobo – TropiPop
Quebra As Cadeira – Axe
Estamos Calienticos – Samba Pop
La Vida Es Un Carnaval – Salsa
Menea Menea – Latin Pop/Cumbia
Merehop – Merengue/Hip Hop/Belly Dance
Te llaman a Grabar – Salsa
Dame Un Tiempo Mas – Cumbia Reggaeton
No Quiero Mas – Flamenco/ Cumbia

3. Ripped: Zumba Toning.
The total Zumba Ripped workout is 60 minutes, but the workout is divided into two 30 minute parts.


The first part Zumba Toning is led by Jani Roberts, Beto Perez and Pamela Soccoro. They take turns teaching certain parts of the workout. I like the new instructors and thought they did a good job with their cuing and their energy. here are the list of songs.

Nunca Me Viste - Warm Up - Latin Disco


Get Your Sticks - House (Biceps and Abs)


La Luz Del Flow - Merengue/Hip Hop (Legs, Shoulders, and Back)


Te Estoy Amando - Cumbia Salsa (Back)


Con Movimiento - Reggaeton (Abs, Chest, Shoulders)


Vamos DJ - Congo Hip Hop (Triceps)

4. Exhilarate
These exhilarate has a 60 minutes its really excellent cardio.

Like Activate, Exhilarate has a Learn It and Feel It section. Also like Activate, you have all the camera angles and lighting going all wild on you in certain parts of the workout. List of songs.

Bring It On - Warm Up Latin House
Funkezinho - Funk Fuzion
El Vacilon - Meregue
Mueve La Cadera - Batucada/Merengue
Hala - Reggaeton
Que Quiere La Nina - Salsa
Sigue La Cumbia - Cumbia
Anda Y Diime - Tango
Don't Let Me Down - Swing
Pa' La Discoteka A bailar - Merengue Hip Hop
Caiirinha - Brazilian Dance
Salorien - Rumba Flamenco
I'm Going On - Cool Down Ballad


5. Rush (DvD Bonus)
I love these because if you don't have a lot of time you can just play these rush it has a 2o minutes workout. Zumba Rush is high energy from the start. The pauses in between the segments do not seem as long as in some of the other Zumba workouts.

Echa PA' Un Lado - Warm Up - Techno/Mambo/Charleston


Enciendemala - Cumbia/Rumba/Flamenco


Estas Perdida - Calypso


La Bruja De La Cosquilla - Merengue


Lo Que Quieras Te Dare - Samba


Programme Guide



These Programme Guide has a training tips and techniques, weekly workout,your training song , total body stretch and 10 day accelerated fat loss programme what i like the most is  these guide has a recipes for you to follow starts in Breakfast-Dinner Monday-Friday.

  2. I've wanting to learn how to do this! I mean, it has lots of benefits. You know... aside from obtaining a beach-ready body, you can also stay fit and healthy. The problem is my body has never been bendy and my joints are so stiff! Thanks for sharing this, anyway. :0

  10. I've been hearing this Zumba and our office even offers sessions from time to time. But dues to tight schedule, I can't attend the sessions. Buying DVDs is a good idea, I should also look for programs. I wonder where you got these DVDs.

    I really need to sweat out and add exercise in my life. Being thin doesn't mean you're healthy. I should also be fit! :)

  11. yes , thats one of the reason why i decided to buy a dvd's because of the busy schedule.. by the way i bought these set in one of the mall's here in France.. i think in amazon they sell these kind of stuff.
