    Hi ranirm,
    I have done both Zumba and gym, zumba is anytime better as there is a tendency of boredom with gym.

    Depends on what you do in the gym and how good the Zumba instructor is:)

    In the beginning with Zumba you might burn 500-800 calories per hour (I burned 800 in my first class; used Heart rate monitor; depends on the instructor again and your weight/ht stuff; the less your weight the less you burn in any exercise). After a while it will come down as you get used to it.

    If you do cross trainer in the gym you might get slightly less than that (Don't go by the numbers on the machine unless you are using the heart rate input too else they show more than what you are actually burning). If you run for one hour, you burn more calories.

    My answer would be keep changing your exercise and instructors to get the most of out of the 1 hour..For most of us any group class will force us to continuously move thus expending more calories whereas on our own in the gym, it takes lot of discipline to make the most of the one hour:)
