Who would burn more calories??

i tried googling about how many calories are burned in a 1 hr session of Zumba..and this is what i found....

"During an hour long session you can burn anywhere from 500 to 800 calories. On average, a 150-lb. person can expect to burn 536 calories during an hour of Zumba."

so am i right to assume that a larger person would burn more?
I am just under 300lbs...although i am fat, i can still keep up with the would i burn closer to the 800 range??

  • You'd burn more calories, because you weigh more. The best way to tell how many calories you're burning is by wearing a heart rate monitor with your info put in, because it measures how har you're working, which ultimately determines calorie burn.
