Fun!  One of my online BFFs and her husband are Zumba instructors.  It's so much fun :)

Absolutely. When you're in the lower zones 1-3, your body is primarily burning stored fats. But when you get into zones 4-5, you're burning sugars, carbs and muscle. It's ok to spend a few mins at a time in the higher zones for building cardio endurance... But for weight loss you've got to bring it back down to the lower zones.


Quoting ForeverInLove:

Zones? There is a difference?



Quoting Threes.Company:

Zumba is really fun!  Though I had to stop doing it when I was trying to lose weight.  It elevated my heart rate too much and pulled me out of a fat-burning zone and into a sugar-burning zone.  It wasn't good for my goals.  I can do it now, but now I'm so hooking on strength training, running, biking, swimming, etc, that I am no longer interested in it! :)  I do take a dance class weekly, though!



Hope you're enjoying it!  I see this post is from earlier in the month.

What are these zones? I've never heard of that before.
