Dance aerobics like Zumba really does work if you’re looking for a new, fun way to burn calories! You can burn 400-700 calories in a one hour session. Even if you don’t think you’d enjoy dancing, it is worth trying at least once. The American Council on Exercise lists Zumba as one of the most popular forms of group exercise and notes that despite the activity’s fun energy, it’s an exercise that can greatly contribute to better health. In addition to contributing to fat burning, Zumba also elevates your heart rate to build a stronger heart.
