Note: The Calorie Burner Counter provides only an estimate of the number of calories burned for a given activity and duration. This estimate is derived from Ainsworth, B.E., et al. "Compendium of Physical Activities: Classification of Energy Costs of Human Physical Activities." Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. 1993. Actual calories burned may vary, depending on the intensity of the workout, the age and body composition of the exerciser and other factors. Not all types of physical activity are appropriate or safe for all individuals. If you have any health conditions or concerns, talk to your health care provider before beginning or significantly increasing your physical activity program.


The number of calories that you burn during exercise is dependent on your weight, your type of exercise, and the duration. Using our Calorie Burner Calculator, you can calculate the approximate number of calories that you burn during a workout.
