by Joanne Chapman

Zumba Fitness is great fun and an excellent way to burn those calories and aid in weight loss. As you dance you are exercising and raising your heart rate, however because of the fun party atmosphere Zumba Fitness does not feel a chore to burn calories.

This can be a key element for many people, slip on your Zumba Shoes and join the party while you burn some calories.

How Many Calories Does Zumba Fitness® Program Burn?

A frequent question people ask is how many calories does Zumba burn? Many other resources tell you that you can burn 500 – 1000 Zumba calories per hour, this is good to know but still a bit vague.

Other examples state that if you are 150lb you burn 536 Zumba calories per hour, this is great if you happen to be 150lb, but what about everyone else?

Zumba Fitness® Calorie Calculator

This page provides you with a Zumba calories calculator, allowing you to easily estimate how many Zumba® calories you have burned during your Zumba Fitness class or how many Zumba calories you burned at home with your Zumba Wii Fit, Zumba Fitness Party for XBox 360 or Zumba Fitness for PS3.

As everyone is different, the most accurate way to measure calories burned is to use a heart rate monitor, however in the absence of a heart rate monitor the Zumba calories calculator estimates the calories burned, based on average metabolic rates per intensity.

Simply enter your weight, the duration of your Zumba workout and the intensity of your Zumba® workout.

To select the appropriate Zumba Fitness work out intensity:

  • Low: You could sing while doing your Zumba Fitness workout
  • Mid: You could talk while doing your Zumba Fitness workout
  • High: You are out of breath and could not talk while doing your Zumba Fitness workout
