I've done curves with my sister and I believe that 180 calories burned is about right. I did it and didn't even break a sweat and I worked it hard. For me it isn't much of a workout.

I'm not sure what your current weight is, but that calories burned number does sound a little high. It's hard to know for sure, but I'm typically skeptical of the calories burned outputs provided by machines (which can overstate calories burned by as much as 30%).

Is that for a 30-minute workout?

I use the curves smart card and when I log the numbers at curves it shows calories burned between 300 and 400...What do you think?

The calories burned in our tracker for Curves is based on a study by the American College of Exercise, which showed a 30 minute workout burns an average of 180 calories. What are you using to measure your calories burned and what kind of numbers are you getting?
