Some people say that the best way to do anything is in a way that you enjoy. It can certainly be true of fitness, which is usually seen as a bit of a drag. So any chance to spice up the proceedings is more than welcome. Enter Zumba Fitness, which uses the Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect peripheral to full effect.

It makes the concept of fitness training more interesting by wrapping it in a layer of sexy international dancing. Learn how to perform all kinds of red hot dance steps accompanied by saucy Latin music to make shaking the weight off a hundred times more fun. Zumbo instructors Tanya Beardsley, Gina Grant and Zumba creator Beto will be on hand to help you through 30 different routines that will make you feel fit as well as sexy.

Nine different dances can be taught in this game, from Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba and Flamenco to Calypso. You’ll build your muscle tones and your sense of endurance as you work your way through the specially-created fitness routines, but you won’t know you’re doing it because the presentation and party atmosphere will make it like you’re hardly lifting a finger!

Team up with a friend to see who can get the highest workout score, or play together to rack up a really high group tally. And when you’ve become bored of all the routines, you can download new ones from Xbox Live Marketplace.
