With this Calorie Burn Calculator you can accurately work out your calorie burn for over 120 different sports, exercises and activities.
Weight loss and weight gain essentially boil down to one simple factor at the end of the day – your calorie balance.
Burn more calories than you consume on a daily basis, you’ll be in what’s called a calorie deficit, and you’ll lose weight. Consume more calories than you burn on a daily basis on the other hand, and you’ll be in a calorie surplus, and you’ll gain weight.
Pretty simple, right?
Well, simple in concept I guess. Keeping track of calories isn’t always that easy, especially the calories that your body burns. That’s why you’ll find this Calorie Burn Calculator such a useful tool to add to your weight loss toolbox.
I know I certainly learned a lot about exercise and burning calories when I first started playing with a Calorie Burn Calculator years ago. So I’m sure you’ll find this tool of enormous help too.
Exercise and Activity Calorie Burn Calculator
The Exercise and Activity Calorie Burn Calculator below works out how many calories you burn whilst engaging in a variety of activities, sports and exercises, for a nominated period of time. In total there are over 120 that you can choose from.
There are two ways it can do this for you. The best way is for you to enter your weight, and your Fat Percentage – if you know what it is. Using these values the calculator can get a more accurate measurement of your body’s Fat Free Mass and therefore your BMR, so it can give you more accurate calorie burn values.
If you don’t know your Fat Percentage, you can leave that field blank and just enter your weight, height and age instead. Using those values the Calorie Burn Calculator will simply estimate your Fat Free Mass and BMR, and give you pretty good, but less accurate, calorie burn estimates.
Please note that if you happen to enter your Fat Percentage as well as your height and age, the calculator will disregard your height and age and only use the Fat Percentage value, since this will be the more accurate option.

Please keep in mind that the values given by this calculator are only approximate figures.
A variety of factors, for example the intensity with which you perform any activity, can naturally affect how many calories you burn. Also note that this calculator doesn’t take into account any environmental factors for the activities, such as running into the wind or up hills.
Any Calorie Burn Calculator should therefore only be used as a guide.
