I would track it the same way as a regular Zumba class. I actually think that (most) toning classes probably burn less than (most) dancing-intensive classes.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, cumba Mexicana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, danzón, Cuban rumba, ballroom rumba

I would just track it as Zumba.

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

I would still track it as cardio. While the word toning is in the title it won't be a strength workout. Track it as normal zumba, the calorie burn difference is probably minimal.


There are no shortcuts. No magic bullets. No secret spells. What works is hard work, dedication, and a daily dose of chocolate.

I think it was actually just as strenuous as the cardio class. I worked up quite a sweat!

I'm not familiar with that type of class (I've only heard of the cardio version), but you may find this page helpful in figuring out how to track that:

I am going to my first Zumba toning class tonight. I want to track it on the fitness tracker but I can only find Zumba dance. I'm not sure how to track this since I don't think it would be the same amount of calories burned as a regular cardio Zumba class. Any advice?
