I think you are misunderstanding the part about burning 7000 calories a week. That really should be done through a combination of your diet and exercise, not just exercise. If you are looking to burn that much each day, you are going to NEED to increase your calories. If you set up your account properly with a 2 pound a week weight loss along with how much fitness activity you are actually doing, then you should be set to reach your goals in a healthy way. I recommend you make sure you have your goals set up properly and then follow those guidelines instead of trying to burn 7000 calories a week. You may want to also take a look at the Calorie Calculation 101 article to understand more about the calculations done on the site. There, you will see that it is the combination of your diet and exercise, not just your exercise that will help you reach your goals. Here is a link to that article: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/calorie_calcu lation101.asp .

Spinning class is brill, also swimming & running - lets face it you don't see many fat runner do you!! Good luck anyway but don't set yourself up to feel disappointed if the scales are not your friend, that could be a bad move but I'm sure you already know that
If your gym has a spinning class. It can burn around 600 for an hour and be a very motivating thing.

On top of my normal workout, I walk to work. I don't know if that's possible for you, but it really adds up and gives you that extra boost. I purposely take a route that is twice as far. Knowing that I have to be there on time I have to keep a quick pace. Usually I can get anywhere from 500 to 700 calories burned for 55 min of walking.

Seconding Turbo Jam if you want a huge calorie burn through physical activity.
Don't forget that you can also create a calorie deficit through diet. Your body burns tons of calories just keeping it running. If you don't provide it with enough calories, it will take some out of your "reserves" (hopefully fat, though it can be muscle if you eat too little).
So i decided I wanted to lose atleast 2 pounds per week which is the maximum lbs a person should lose a week. So as we know 3500 calories equals to 1 pound, so if i can burn 7000 calories per week at 1000 per day 7 days a week i should reach my goal.
I am currently seeking exercises that i can do to burn this amount per day, I want to try exercising in the mornings and evenings so 500 cal per work out.
