Choreographed Classes and Calories Burnt.

Postby kelvinator » Tue Oct 26, 2010 8:04 pm

Hi everyone,
I know that all of the information you are about to help me with is dependent on many things including the amount of weights you lift, how heavy you are and how your heart rate is going during a class,.....


I am after some general thoughts on how many calories are burnt in these classes. Perhaps you have been before and wore a HRM which indicates your calories burnt. All classes are 60mins, with about 5 mins stretching at the end.

PowerHour-15mins spin, 15mins boxing, 15mins abs, 10 mins stretching.

Les Mills Body Pump, using moderate weights.

Circuit training


Yoga (not power yoga)


Deep Water Running

Swimming Laps

Any takers? Advisors out there that could add their two bobs into this discussion?

maybe try googling it? Do you have a heart rate monitor you could use or borrow one?

Hey Kelvin...
I have used my Polar HRM to monitor how much calorie I was burning when I go to my classes...
for Body Steps, I was averaging about 1000calorie per class, while Pump was more around 700-900 depending on intesity and how I felt.

Just be aware this is based on my stats (~110kg, 5'8" and 37yo male)

HRM arent the most exact measurement either... but it does give a good guide :)

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever. ~Lance Armstrong
