  • I'll tell you this. Zumba burns up to 500-600 cals a class. It'll at least gt your heart rate up, get you active, and help you jumpstart your metabolism.

  • Pilates would make your midsection and back stronger and leaner.

  • I just started zumba and just got home from my 4th class and i've been working out and doing abs and whatnot but today my abs were actually "cramping" from using them so much in this class and I've never felt that before just the usual " muscle burn" so thats all I can tell ya but the class is loads of fun and can't hurt lol The instructor said its great for abs and losing weight because ur heartrate is constantly accelerating and decelerating with the class. (the classes are purposely made for your HR to go up and down)

  • zumba works if you dance your heart out!!! If you are just moving your hips from side to side. it is a waste of time.
    It is basically aerobics with latin rhytms...:-)
