How do we calculate the amount of calories burned with Zumba?
This calculation uses the MET value (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) of Zumba. The MET value of Zumba = 8.8. We multiply the MET value with the person\'s body weight in kilogram. Then we multiply this with 0.0175 and the duration in minutes.
A person weighs: 180 lbs
MET value of Zumba: 8.8
Time: 30 minutes
The calorie calculation for Zumba for 30 minutes is as follows:
(180/2.20462) * 8.8 * 0.0175 * 30 minutes = 377
30 minutes of Zumba burns 377 kcal.
