How Many Calories Do You Burn On the Elliptical?

Yesterday, I posted about calorie burn on walking versus running, so today I wanted to let you know what the calorie burn is like for the elliptical machine. Of course, the calorie burn does vary based on the the speed and resistance at which you are going, but below is a general look at what you would burn for 30 minutes on the elliptical.

I worked out on the elliptical today for about 1 hour and burned 660 calories. I usually work at a resistance of 3 and at a speed between 55 and 60 rotations/minute. That leaves me with 2,840 calories left to burn this week!

Have you worked out today? Maybe you can workout on the elliptical! It's a great workout!

I got the calories burned from this online calculator: http://www.healthstatus.com/calculate/cbc
