Zumba burned 600 calories!

I love Zumba classes. I know it’s a big gym craze, but I love it. When I wore a monitor to a recent class, I burned 600 calories – and there were definitely people in the class (men and women) who took the intensity up way higher than I did!

With Zumba classes now available in gyms and town halls across 180 countries, there’s no denying the workout has become something of a worldwide phenomenon.

And its reign as the go-to dance-fitness class doesn’t look set to end any time soon.

The study, conducted by Kingston University and the University of the West of Scotland, suggests Zumba is more effective than salsa in helping inactive women up their fitness.
