Just got back to Zumba class after 6 weeks out. Man, its such fun. If you haven't try it, do. Doesn't feel like exercise, rather, a night out dancing with the girls.:p

I think Zumba is the best hour of my week. What activity are you using to add it to your activities page?

Does anyone know how many calories you burn while doing an hour of Zumba? I just joined a gym that specializes in Zumba, I love it.

Zumba calorie burn
The instructor that teaches Zumba at my club says that you burn approx. 500/ 600 calories per hour of Zumba. Obviously, the more motion you put into it the more calories you burn.

I haven't tried Zumba but last night when I couldn't sleep I caught an infomercial. It looks like tons of fun and they said you can burn up to 1,000 calories an hr! Unfortunately I don't think they offer classes in my small town. :(

How long have you been doing it? What kind of results have you seen?

You might be surprised where they are offering it. I live in a small town and there are 2 separate dance studios that offer it. And the only reason they do is that in the next town over (which is really a village not a town) the local dance studio/tanning parlor/hair salon offers Zumba 4 nights a week! My sister-in-law has been taking it, and she loves it. I've not taken a class yet, but I watched part of her class one night and will be signing up for the next session.

You are totally right! I just found a class close to my area... it's about a 20 or 30 min drive. I'll have to check into it

Let me know how you like the classes!

I LOVE zumba. I've been taking it for the past couple of weeks at the Y. It's tons of fun, and definitely works up a sweat. I look like a complete idiot doing it, but I still enjoy it. :-)
