Does Zumba dance workout really work?

Besides losing weight, Zumba can help lower your risk of heart disease, reduce your blood pressure and bad cholesterol, and boost your good cholesterol. If you have heart disease, your doctor may suggest starting back on the road to fitness in a cardiac rehab program instead of jumping right into a Zumba class.

How effective is Zumba dance for weight loss?

You may be able to burn between 300 and 900 calories during one hour of mid- to high-intensity Zumba. Doing Zumba two or three times a week, combined with weekly strength training sessions and a balanced diet, may help you meet your weight loss goals.

What should I eat before Zumba workout?

Granola, Berries, and Greek Yogurt – Berries and granola provide quick-digesting carbs to fuel your workout. Eating this meal before a Zumba workout improves stamina, allowing you to dance for a longer period of time. This snack is ideal for when those sweet cravings come kicking in but you don’t feel like baking.

Does Zumba help lose thigh fat?

Slimming your thighs is possible through exercise and healthy changes to your diet, but you can’t use Zumba or any other form of exercise to specifically zap your thigh fat. Your body burns calories as you move your thighs during a Zumba class, but the movement doesn’t specifically burn the fat in this area.
