I agree with Coach Nancy about getting a HRM! Before I had my HRM, I used SP's estimations for Jillian Michaels workouts, which turned out to be way under (by at least half) what I was burning according to my HRM.

Hi,

It depends on if the DVD you are doing is cardio based or strength based. If your DVD is a cardio based program, you may want to use the general aerobic option or consider investing in a heart rate monitor that calculates calories burn which will allow you to manually enter in the calories burn figure.

I hope this helps!

Coach Nancy
