I have a ton of these workout dvds so I decided to start a page that lists how many calories I’ve burned during each one. Keep in mind that I’m a 5’5″, 135 pound female so it will be different for each person, but this will give you a good estimate.

Also, I really suggest getting a heart rate monitor so you know exactly what you’re burning during each workout session. I have the Polar FT7 and it’s easy to set-up, comfortable and a really great monitor. I love the fact that it stores 99 workouts and gives you a total weekly calorie burn. I’ve also heard that the Polar FT4 is awesome, plus it comes in different colors. EDIT: I wanted to add that after my Polar FT7 bit the dust, I purchased the FT4 in pink and love it! It’s a great watch and I would definitely recommend it.
