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.

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: www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe

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?
