Flash Mob. Zumba: Fitness Rush Style.

2,000 Zumba fanatics in one place, working it with Zumba innovators Beto and Gina Grant is honestly a little frightening.

The Zumba series of workout games from Majesco is a pretty big seller and the workout/dance craze itself is hugely popular. But now it's entered a whole new stratosphere of wow with the Zumba flash mob that showed up to launch the latest title in the line- Zumba: Fitness Rush.

Yow. Zumba: Fitness Rush is available now for the Xbox 360.

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.  Learn the Steps training mode breaks down the core dance styles into the basics and a new move cue system helps players anticipate upcoming moves. Torch the calories in Full Class Mode where you can choose from a selection of 45 different Zumba® classes ranging in length from 20 minutes to 60 minutes, or customize your own class with your favorite in-game tracks and routines.
