I've never heard of this machine, but it looks insane! I want one! LOL!

We add things to the database that have calories burned estimates based on independent research (so not just based on what the company says the machine burns.) This machine probably isn't in the database because it's newer and not very common.

At this point, I'd either find a similar activity, or wear a heart rate monitor to see how much you're actually burning.

Hope that helps,

I'm not sure how you would go about having something added to the fitness tracker. What I do is just pick something similar from the tracker. While it won't be completely accurate, it should be close enough to give you an idea of what you're burning.

I have finally worked up the nerve and fitness level to tackle the dreaded Jacobs ladder cardio machine at the gym... and was thrilled to be able to do a full 15 minutes on it before feeling too out of breath and sore. Then I came home to log it into my exercise tracker, knowing that the trainer said this is the best cardio machine/calorie incinerator out there, only to find that its not in the spark exercise tracker!!!
any idea why? or how to get things added to the tracker?
