You should ask this question in the fitness board. Anyway, that counts as an "active" life style, so you should calculated your calories to keep your current weight using a larger factor than 1.2 that SP typically uses for sedentary people. Just search for "calorie calculation 101" and you will find the article. It does not count as exercise. You need to develop your exercises separately. It can't be considered strength training, it is also not cardio unless your heart rate exceeds 65% of max for an extended period of time (e.g. 30 minutes?).

I am a Jazzercise instructor. I teach 60-115 minutes, 4-5 times per week. How do you figure calorie expenditure in relation to your daily nutrition goals?
