Well I never tried zumba DVDs but last year in summer a zumba instructor came to our school and we did it in p.e. and it was exhausting but also lots of fun. One girl from my class takes zumba classes in her town and she really loves it :)

It's latin-american-influenced dances (reggaeton, cha cha, merengue etc) to music. Really great cardio also! There are fuego-classes at certain gyms but I think you can get it on DVD too.
