    Not what I hoped it would be

    It stated that it included the DVD. The DVD is just little snippets of the dances. For anyone who learns by seeing something first this is definitely NOT the product to buy. I haven't even opened the book. I was so disappointed in the DVD that it's been sitting on the shelf since viewing the DVD.

    Not trustworthy

    I bought this DVD thinking that I was going to be able to exercise. Instead I got a diet book with a DVD with just the step samples
    of the exercises, I feel that this is fraud, a deceit.

    Zumba by Beto Perez

    I found the book to be very well put together and the exercises and moves very close to the dvd set and also the Zumba sessions that I have participated when the instructors have come into town here in the twin cities. I also have meet one of the authentic Zumba instructor she was amazing!!! The only problem that I can see with the book for a beginner is if they learn different of which we all do, I am not sure they would have a feel for the steps and how to do them without the visual part and the actual moves from the instructors. You need either the classes , or dvd or both to help with the book. But kudos to the book awesome of course love it

    I bought the book mainly for the Zumba DVD which was very disappointing. It contained about 10 minutes worth of Zumba dance moves and the rest of the DVD was just music. As a novice, there is no way I could practice what was taught. I needed an instructional video to follow.

    ZUMBA YOUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH

    ZUMBA: Ditch the Workout, Join the Party!
    The Zumba Weight Loss Program
    Beto Perez and Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, PhD
    Grand Central Publishing
    ISBN: 978-0-446-54612-6
    $24.99 - Hardback
    304 pages
    Reviewer: Annie Slessman

    Like everyone else, I have tried every diet, exercise program (the ballet class for a woman of thirty-six was probably a mistake) and have had my share of glory and defeats in the process.

    Zumba: Ditch the Workout, Join the Party! The Zumba Weight Loss Program by Beto Perez and Maggie Greenwood-Robinson, PhD is another in a long line of choices to be made in improving your health and attitude.

    The Weight Loss Program is a sensible diet filled with veggies and fruits, lean protein and high fiber foods. This is a great program for anyone wanting to lose weight and get healthy. The exercise program is just what it professes to be.fun and entertaining and provides quite a calorie burning feature to boot! I have often just reverted to my treadmill as it doesn't require a lot of effort from me mentally. But I admit, trying out the Zumba DVD for the first time sure put a smile on my face. The DVD provides easy to follow steps that allow you to progress at your own pace. The music is uplifting - Latin and full of energy. If you are the type of person who requires someone to encourage you to go just a bit further, then you might want to find a Zumba Class near you.

    Buying this book will give you a good idea if this program is for you and you can try the moves in the privacy of your own home before moving on to a more structured environment at a Zumba Center. At a cost of $24.99, you might as well skip one dinner out, buy this book, sit down with a plate full of veggies and fruit, get out that energy drink and as Gloria Estefan would say."Get on Your Feet, Get Up and Get Some Action!"

    Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review

    Zumba is the workout program that has taken the fitness world by storm. It features a fun way to dance yourself into the best shape of your life. Zumba consists of a high energy fitness routine that includes salsa, samba, and the meringue. Its sultry Latin moves are easy to learn and are very effective in burning calories.

    The ability to learn Zumba without joining a health club is now available through Beto Perez and Maggie Greenwood-Robinson book Zumba(R): Ditch the Workout, Join the Party! The Zumba Weight Loss Program. The book is priceless, not only do you learn the moves of Zumba by viewing the in-depth illustrations it also includes an instructional DVD, along with the Zumba diet.

    I discovered Zumba approximately six months ago at my local gym. From the first class I instantly fell in love with all that it offered. Within six weeks of practicing this workout routine twice a week, I lost more weight and inches than with anything I had ever tired. What is so amazing is that it had kept my interest; I now look forward to my Zumba classes each week.

    Get an early start on your New Year's resolution to lose weight and have fun doing it. Zumba(R): Ditch the Workout, Join the Party! The Zumba Weight Loss Program is the only book you need to help you achieve your goal. Once you see that you can actually have fun and lose weight you will quickly become a Zumba fan.
