This Is How Many Calories You’re Burning in an Hour

Posted on Posted in Gym Workouts

Curious how many calories you’re torching during one hour of your favorite workout? Sure, exercising for the endorphins is great. (And seriously, we’re all about squeezing in a a fun sweat session every day.) But if you’re trying to maintain or lose weight, it can be helpful to have at least a ballpark idea of how much energy you’re expending, too.

Talk to almost anybody who’s lost a serious amount of weight, and they’ll likely tell you that tracking what they burned and consumed was key to their success. (Need proof? Read Andie’s story here. Or Alex’s journey, here.) Plus, how else will you know whether you can afford to splurge on that giant protein cookie post-spin class?

If you’re into rowing, lifting or high-intensity workouts, you’ll be happy to know your time in the gym has been well worth it. But remember, exercise isn’t all about the calories. While Pilates might not burn much, compared to say, boxing, it sure is a great way to strengthen your core.

Here’s how to figure out whether you’re burning 200 or 600 calories in your next 60-minute routine.
