    I've been doing Zumba for 4 years - I got into it because I'm a dancer and wanted a more interesting workout - It consists of (moderately) high intensity cardio that's good for shedding pounds and sculpting the body. Personally I wouldn't say I've gained any muscles on my legs or arms they've just become more toned. As for abs, some routines are really good for defining them and blasting belly fat.

    If you don't mind my asking how fit are you? and were you planning on purchasing the discs or going to a live class?
    What I've seen is that people from both ends of the spectrum do struggle with certain aspects of Zumba because it can be fast-paced, technical and thus a bit overwhelming if you can't keep up.

    If you don't have much fat to begin with and are already quite toned then I don't really think Zumba is for you. By all means try it out because it's fun and will improve your rhythm and stamina. The live classes create a motivational and fun atmosphere but if you were to purchase the DVDs I recommend the original because the latest 'Zumba Exhilarate' is not as intense and only one disc is worth it in my opinion.

    I suppose You should try going to the gym as zumba is a cardio and I don't think it's good for bodybuilding.

    You won't lose weight unless you eat less than you burn; it doesn't matter what exercise you're doing.

    Building muscle requires putting significant resistance repetitively on your muscles and eating excess kcals to provide the energy to do so. A largely aerobic exercise won't do that.

    you won't gain any noticeable muscle doing zumba, you need to lift weights and eat a calorie surplus
