Calories Burned During Aerobic Activities

Cardio fitness activities are paramount in calorie burning. A calorie is a measurement of energy, like a pound is a measure of weight. The amount of energy you exert when doing activity is measured as calorie burn rate. Keeping track of calories burned is important, whether you’re trying to lose weight or just maintain a healthy weight and fitness level. If you want to maintain your current weight then your daily caloric intake needs to equal your calories burned. In order to lose weight you must create a deficit by burning more calories than you consume. You have to burn 3,500 calories to burn one pound.

This chart provides calories burned while performing some common cardio fitness activities. Each of the estimates is based on a 140 pound woman working at a moderate intensity level. The duration of the exercises was based on the amount of time these activities are usually performed.
