Establish Exercise Range:
You can take any activity and perform it in a variety of intensities
Low to moderate - approximately 4 calories per minute (calisthenics, slow cycling, yoga, mat pilates, walking slow)
Moderate to vigorous - approximately 5 to 8 calories per minutes (aerobic dance, step, moderate cycling, swimming, aqua, tennis, walking briskly)
Highly vigorous - approximately 8 to 10 calories per minutes (interval workouts, walking vigorously, jogging, kick boxing, running, intense cycling, skipping rope)
Suggestion on how to use this information:
When calculating calories burned for a 55 minute exercise class consider these factors: intensity - how hard are you working; range of motion - large muscle exercises burn more calories than small muscle exercises; speed - slow, low intensity vs fast higher intensity. The harder you work the more you burn!
Remember the harder you work the more calories burned.
The calorie indication is for a 55 minutes class, unless specified otherwise.
*Actual calories burned vary depending upon many factors, including, but not limited to, an individual’s intensity level during the workout, range of motion, physical condition, body type, metabolism, pre-class weight and body fat, among others. ClubFitness makes no representation or warranty regarding the specific calories burned or results any individual should expect when participating in any of its group fitness classes.
