Get a heart rate monitor and work it out to a fairly exact figure. Too many variables to give you a satisfactory answer.

will have to invest in a heart monitor then, thanks

or you could just type "zumba calories per hour" into google and find the 100s of answers given there instead of asking on a deal website!

Since when has size 10 been fat? I love my Zumba and go 3 times a week. You seem to forget alot of people don't do these classes just for weight loss, but for exercise which you must lack of!

OP Im not sure how much zumba burns off, but my instructor says you do over 3000 steps in the hour.

just started so didnt ask! will do next time

lol Oh I know, Could then laugh at their inabilities!!

Just looked and they say it can be anything from 500-1300 calories per hour, depending on effort and routine. I would say average is about 800-1000 if you put your whole umpff into it. Its the best fitness around.
Lived in the gym and also did Aerobics, but nothing burns as good as Zumba does it x

I have never tried that. Its really hard to book a bike in time. Plus i think there is no escape from instructors eyes if you can't keep up lol

give it a go you will love it! ours turn the lights down low and blast the music so you can do as much or as little as you want to!

Mandy i love Zumba! Like Beth am going 3 times a week too - its so much fun!! You will soon get hooked and one class a week wont be enough for you!
