How accurate is the number of calories burned that pops up at the end of a workout?

  • I do not have a HR monitor, but I am doing a calories in/calories out plan so need to know how accurate the count is. I am 22, 5'5" and weigh 128 lbs. I definitely feel like my heart rate is speeding up and am out of breath in the Cardio Sculpt videos.

    I feel like the calorie count isn't quite right. I'm 5'2 and 113 pounds. The number on the video tells me that I burn up to 500 calories doing 30 minutes of Inferno. But I'd burn the same amount from running 5 miles in 50 minutes. Since 30 minutes of Inferno includes 5-10 minutes of breaks, I can't see how I'd blast through 500 calories in 20 minutes of jumping around. Hope that helps?

      I've been comparing the calories burned from my heart rate monitor app compared to those that Daily Burn predicts, and DB is almost always higher, sometimes significantly. Sad face.
