Calories Burned During Zumba

Everyone always says you burn 1000 calories per hour during a zumba session. Is that actually true? I know it's very intense, and I'm definitely losing weight, but that is a lot of calories.

Oh I forgot that calories

Oh I forgot that calories varied depended on the person. The range of 400-800 calories seems much more realistic to me than 1000. I'd never heard of any other exercise burning that many.

The amount of calories you

The amount of calories you burn will be dependant on your individual weight, the intensity of the class, fitness level and metabolism, so the figure will be different for everyone. From my understanding, the estimated burn can be anywhere between 400 and 800 calories.
