I've done Pure Barre about 5 times a week since I joined Sparkpeople in February. I researched it extensively and found some people who used monitors and said they burned anywhere from 400-500 calories per 55 minutes class. Based on that, I logged each workout at 400, 450, or 500 calories based on whether I felt it was a more or less exertional workout that day. I know it's nowhere near an exact science, but it just gives me an idea what I'm doing and something to log. Since I don't really base any other calculations of calories burned, I don't worry about it being any more accurate than that. I'm about to start Crossfit and am going to have the same problem all over again!

Here's how you track any workout that's not in the tracker:

There's always the high/low impact aerobics options for most cardio, as well.

I have just started an Extend Barre class and was wondering if anyone knew the approximate calories burned... Its a 55 min class.
