The reason why Zumba is so great for weight loss is all to do with your metabolism.
Sandra said: “Like any form of cardio fitness, Zumba is designed to raise the heart rate which can boost metabolism.
“Depending on your personal stats like body composition and general overall starting point, people can burn up to 600 calories in a one hour Zumba class.”
Three classes a week is the optimum apparently, so you’d be burning an average of 1,800 calories a week.
In general, if you burn 3,500 more calories than you eat, you will drop a pound a week. So, Zumba alone gets you a huge head start on this.
