I started doing Zumba again after a break and I did the toning DVD today. I think it is very cardio. This is the original one. I was sweating and I don't sweat easily. I laughed wickedly when Beto says now the cardio portion of the vido. I was already dead tired lol
Funny that you mention this, I was curious about the calorie burn myself, so i wore my HRM last night while teaching my ZumbaToning class... and I burned the same amount of calories as in a regular Zumba class... my HR AVG was 80%, and my max was 94%! It's JUST LIKzE ZUMBA... but there are MORE benefits: for your muscles & your heart!
I've decided to find calories burned for zumba toning by using Calisthenics / exercise - moderate - since I don't have a heart rate monitor since calisthenics is close to what we do in zumba toning Thanks for everyone in put on the topic of how to record fitness minutes & calories burned

We use weights at our class too, usually light like 3-5lbs but I figure every little bit helps. But man when we get the mats out and do a song of ab work- wow I feel that lol! I usually put 600 calories. I wore a heart moniter once and it read me at 750 calories in the one class. I so want to buy one cuz I feel liek the dance option here is off considering how hard we work in class,
