Zumba® Fitness Rush, available on Kinect™ for Xbox 360®, invites you to lose yourself in the music with an energetic and effective workout that makes you forget you’re even exercising. The visually-stunning game is jam packed with 42 sizzling new songs and routines, 10 of which are exclusive to Kinect for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, including contagious Zumba® Fitness originals and tracks from hot artists like Pitbull and Nicole Scherzinger. Move to 24 international dance styles as you party yourself into shape – that’s twice the number of styles included in the original Zumba® Fitness game and more than any other dance game. Six superstar Zumba instructors guide you through each routine in a variety of exclusive arenas, while the new Progress Tracker calculates calories burned so you can maximize your workout.
