So I have been using the nautilus treadclimber at my gym for the past week an hour/day. The calorie counter says that I have burned 1000 calories. Is this even close to accurate?

    it could be. I use my Polar F6 (my gift to me for 17 pounds!)

    You put in your age, height, weight. Then you put on a strap around your chest that keeps track of your heart rate.

    The Elliptical Machine, that until the treadclimber came along was the highest calorie burner at the gym, showed I burned about 700 calories.

    I didnt believe it until I used my F6 and it said I burned 315 calories in 30 minutes. So the Elip at the gym wasnt too far off.

    What was your hearrate? IF it was at 80% then chances are you burned a whole day of calories in your workout.

    Any chance you can buy a HRM. Gosh, it is the best thing I have ever paid money for. My DH is going to help me with a test tonight :wink:

    Heart rate zones are determined by age.

    220 is base line
    22 your age is deducted
    198 is the absolute maximum your HR should be.

    80 % of 198 = 158
    70 % of 198 =139

    and so forth. I dont have the exact numbers but the there are 2 zone that matter.
    Fat burning is 70-80% I think
    and Cardio is 90%

    I hope this helps in some way.
