How many calories will I burn at Alison’s Zumba Class?

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Ladies often come to me sweaty and excited after class and ask “How many calories do you think I just burned during the class?” For you calorie counters out there, here’s the info : )

An average 60 minute Zumba class can burn between 500 and 800 calories! You may burn more or less depending on your intensity and fitness level. Much more fun than going to the Gym or pounding the pavements on a run huh?!

Along with the Zumba dance classes it is important to follow a balanced diet and drink lots of water – especially before, during and after you Zumba party!

Great Zumba Classes – Holbury, Blackfield, Fawley, Marchwood and More!

You don’t have to have any dance or workout experience when you walk into my Zumba class. As long as you have no major health problems, all you need to come to my class with is some trainers, and a smile! You will get an hour of intense cardio exercise just by moving to the beat, following my lead and enjoying yourself, with it never feeling like a workout. You will workout at your own fitness-level, and there is no commitment, you are always welcome to walk into my class, and see if Zumba is right for You.
