Our Costco also had Zumba Gold for around $47 or $48, and the package said it included some sort of bonus Zumba music CD.

I didn't buy it, because I bought it for a cheaper price months ago on Amazon (without the bonus CD.)

If I'm not mistaken, the Costco Exhilarate set is the smaller version of the two Exhilarate sets that are available. I'm not positive, but I think the Costco set is missing the chair workout and the Fitness Concert workout DVD. If that's the case, I think the set is cheaper at Amazon. I know I only paid $45.00 when I bought it, and I think it's around $50 right now -- but I didn't get the bonus music CD that's included in the Costco set. (I wouldn't have used the CD, anyway, but others might want it.)

Hi Susan,

The Gold kit looked as though it was the only one with the CD audio disc, when looking at the box labels for Gold and the Exhilarate.

The Gold kit didn't seem like it had much for what you were paying. The Gold box label didn't reveal how many minutes were on the "Cardio" disc.

Oops -- you're right about the Gold set being the one with the music CD.

You really don't get a whole lot in the Gold set -- I bought mine on Amazon for $35.99 when it was a Gold Box deal, and I thought it was a decent deal at that price, even though it's really only 2 workouts plus the Step-by-Step DVD.

If I recall correctly, the Cardio workout in the Gold set is about 45 minutes long.

it is confusing - i think the Costco placard for Exhilarate says there's a "bonus" CD, but that's not true.

if you spend a little less than $10 more, you get so much more in content.

i got the Exhilarate from a Craigslist seller. i was so lucky - i paid $60 for the Exhilarate and WW Punch kit together!!!

i love the chair workout from Exhilarate. it's one of my favorites. watching Beto reminded me of Fred Astaire!

Wow -- $60 was a great deal! I really like the Punch kit, too -- probably more than I like the Zumba set.

The Exhilarate set does include a bonus cd called Dance Party. It includes Zumba fitness tracks and chart hits. There are 12 tracks on the cd. I got this set at Costco and really like it.

that's very interesting because the costco Exhilarate box label didn't list the Dance Party, IIRC, - - - does your box label have that written on there?

my Exhilarate didn't come with the CD! the lady i got it from said she bought hers from the infomercial.

i would have liked the CD, though! maybe i should go look in my box to see if it's hiding somewhere in there. if not, this must be a Costco Exclusive.
