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

Since I wear a heart rate monitor everytime I work out, I manually add in time and calories burned with Zumba as description.

Regular zumba class I'd burn about 700 calories in the 50 minutes.

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!

WOO HOO!

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

I have wondered about this, too. I use the basic cardio dancing option at this point.

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,

I just use the "Cardio Dancing" one and put my minutes in. I wish Spark had the different videos that are out there broke down by name and calories. Maybe one day. I see P90X is on there.

Those of you who do zumba toning how do you track your fitness minutes on the fitness tracker do you use "Cardio Dancing (including aerobic dance, Zumba, Hip Hop HUSTLE)" option of something other?

I've just attend my 2nd zumba toning class and really like the idea of using light weights in my workouts.
