I suspect that Sparkpeople may calculate your calories burned with a formula that includes your weight. The less you weigh the fewer calories you burn. The Nordic may base calories burned on an average person that weighs more than you do.

Cardio machines are prone to overestimating; how long were you on the machine?

You should get a Fitbit device. Your height, age, and weight are put in and it gives you a more accurate calories burned calculation.

My nordic track said I burned 338 calories, spark people says 264 anyone know why there is a discrepancy? I am going to use Sparkpeople's number but I am curious.
