Hi Sandy and Charlie, my Zumba instructor told me you could burn from 500-550 in an hour of Zumba. That is what I manually put in. Once you put it into your favorites, you can just go to that.

I just found out that a place close by is offering classes. Can't wait to try there. Between the water aerobics and the Zumba, ya think I'd loose a pound!!!

I have heard so many variations of zumba calorie burning. I will say that I can do it hard and sweat my face off with every song and drink 2 bottles of water or I can not sweat nearly as much and drink 1/2 bottle (like recently, because I have to take it easy for now due to a foot problem)...I think it must depend on how hard you're working at it.

My daughter does the kids Zumba DVD...just got those, and she likes to do it with me. I think it would be cool if my gym had a kids zumba class...no idea on liability issues though.

Hi Sandy,

I read somewhere that 1 hour of Zumba burns 500 calories. Don't remember where.

Do you do Zumba with your kids? That would help keep y'all warm in PA.

Charlie,

The problem I'm having is I don't really know how many calories I'm burning. I do know that I work just as hard as I do with Tae Bo, so I put it in as kickboxing...but it would be nice to put Zumba in there.

As for a little something about myself, I discovered Zumba about 2 months ago and am now training to be an instructor because I fell in love just before being laid off, so I figured no time like now to pursue something exciting! I'm a mother of 2, married, and live in central PA.

:)

That would be great, please do let us know.

But, in the mean time, you can pull up your Fitness and click on "Add Cardio" then look for the Manually Enter Calories Burned and click on that. Then you can add Zumba to your personal list and enter your minutes and how many calories you burned.

See how that works for you.

By the way, I'm glad to have you on the team. Would you mind telling us a little something about yourself.

Hugs,
Charlie

I asked them to pretty pretty please add zumba as a cardio option.

I'll let everyone know what they say!
