I have just tried out zumba but it isn't in the exercise choices!! How do we get things added to it to know what we have burned?? I enjoy seeing the number!! Please HELP!!

Best off using a heart rate monitor if you can. When I did zumba I logged it as aerobics - general.

I just found this website http://caloriesburnedhq.com/zumba-calories-burned/ Not sure how accurate it is but the numbers looked good!! LOL

You can create a new one for your use. That's what I did and just enter the number from my HRM. I do the same thing with specific DVDs (30DS, Walk Away the Pounds, Gilad).

I tried the zumba calories site when I was doing it, it gave me higher numbers than logging it as aerobics, don't know which is closer to being right but I decided i'd rather err on the side of caution

My daughter is a Zumba Instructor well as myself. 60 mins of Zumba in a class can burn from 700 to 1000 calories It depends on how intense you do the moves. Just remember if you have an injury modify your move so you will not get hurt.

I just log it in as dancing because that's basically what Zumba is anyway, dance fitness.

Would you say that the zumba site I posted would be accurate for counting calories? Thank you
