This calculator computes the calories burned during popular activities.
Your level of ability also affects this – if you are more experienced with an activity, you will burn fewer calories doing it! Use this as a general guideline.
The activities included in this calculator are the ten (10) most popular, according to the US census.
They are listed in the order that they were ranked. Weightlifting is the only exception, which I have replaced myself in lieu of “Exercising with Equipment” because this was too broad of a range. Camping provides zero calories in the calculator because it is not specific enough.
I then added running, as this is also a very popular activity. All exercises assume a moderate intensity level.
Not an Exact Science
There are so many other factors that influence how efficiently your body burns calories during exercise.
Health conditions, the amount of calories in your diet, and genetics all factor into this.
So use the above as a rough guideline, but don’t get frustrated if your results are slightly different.
The important thing is that you ARE exercising!
