thanks yall, I want to see about additional equipment when finances allow....I was not sure whether to pick something close as one of you stated, but that was what I did until I could do better.

You can also invest in a good heart rate monitor with a chest strap, which will be your most accurate estimate :)

All of the exercises in the Spark system give a calorie burn.

If something you do is not listed, you should choose an approximate listing, eg "Low-impact aerobics" is a good general cardio listing.

Spark can only add exercises when there are studies done on them to show what the calorie burns are.

If you want to research other potential calorie burns, you can always google "Calories burned doing xyz". Be wary to only count things you do "as exercise" though. It's not a good idea to track your housework or job as your fitness minutes and calories.

I am in need of a guide to calories burned during any given activity. Not all of the exercises give the number of calories & therefore only the minutes count. I would like to compare burned calories to consumed calories. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
