Zumba, Zumba Everywhere ...Zumba is giving me Taebo flashbacks, except worse. Beto Perez is becoming the quieter version of Billy Banks. There are a litany of videos available. There are clothing lines and workout materials. Local gyms are having Zumba classes. And in a few minute I think I'm going to go to the store and get the Zumba Fitness Wii game.

Taebo didn't even have a video game!

Review:  Zumba Fitness Claims, Complaints, Fraud, Scams


According to ZumbaFitness.com, Zumba Fitness claims the following:

  • Burn at a rate as high as 1000 calories per hour
  • Target your lower body, abs, core and upper body
  • Lose a dress or pant size in your first 10 days

So we went to go see if they were worth colors used on the website...


Every site we came across confirmed that Zumba will get your a** in gear and that you can get out what you put into it. And the complaints we found were typical.

But I Don't Know the Steps?

The cool part about the fitness workout DVD collections is that they have a basic training DVD to get your started. Even those who liked it said it takes a little practice to master the steps, but once you do it's actually fun. And the fun is what keeps you coming back for more...

Update - 2013

Here's what we've uncovered since the last update:

Video:  Zumba Fitness on NBC's The Biggest Loser

Video:  Zumba Instructor Prostitution Scam

Apparently, it pays to be a Zumba instructor in Maine.

As far as we can tell, Beach Body wasn't associate with it. Their franchise influence was used to create a sub-network. It's not everyday reaches such potential that someone can use it so subversively. In a twisted, round-about way, it's a testament to the popularity of the product. Only big time franchises ever have to fear of this happening.

Customer Service Stepping Up

Given their profound network and thousands of coaches teaching these classes, the complaints have only shrunk since we first saw the product two years ago. That makes us smile.

Zumba is still going nice and strong with no signs of slowing down.

Decompressing w/ Dr. Ho's Back Belt [Review] - (I could have said, "pimpin' ").

Before I'd ever use a product like Dr. Ho's Back Belt, I would consult my chiropractor - who I haven't seen in awhile. What we found is that most people wouldn't take such an approach...

[Review] NutriBullet - It's Better Than Your Blender Because???? WTF?

I would swear that the NutriBullet is just a Magic Bullet with a different plastic skin and fonts & iconography. I assume that if I want to make veggie smoothies I could just use a Magic Bullet, but apparently I can't. Or something like that. I'm still looking.

Review - InstaBulb w/ Anthony Sullivan - Another Classic My Grandfather Used

This is one of those times where my grandfather bought something he wanted to see on TV and it was a great idea. I went into the garage and click the switch when I realized the light-bulb didn't look like an ordinary light-bulb.

Neutrogena SkinID [Review] - Free Skin ID Evaluation

With so many acne products out and about, on television, on the shelves, at the impulse counter, next to the Redbox and vending machines...It's enough to make one wonder as to why the competition is so fierce. Is it because no single product works well enough? Or is it because people have a hard time telling which product works for them. Maybe Neutrogena is onto something with the SkinID.
