I have never done the program you are talking about, but here's what I can tell you about Zumba:
Intensity varies based on your instructor.
Your intensity can vary based upon your desire to ramp it up.
The average participant burns 400-1000 calories per hour in Zumba.
I lost 40 lbs. doing this and not much else. Now, I need to modify what I'm eating.
Your first class or two won't feel like a mega workout until you are a little bit familiar with the steps, so go at least 3 times.
Zumba is designed to be easy, so if you struggle after a few times, try another instructor.
Zumba IS way fun, and it doesn't matter if you do everything just right, so long as you are having fun and getting a great workout!
Have you ever seen people leaving Zumba? They should be WET with SWEAT! :)
