Welcome!!!! I "searched" for the answer to your question and here it is copied & pasted: ASK THE EXPERT
Q. Why does the Fitness Tracker not calculate calories burned through strength training?
A. Although you will burn calories from strength training, that number is going to vary widely from person to person. It will depend on how much weight you are using, how many sets/reps you are doing, how much rest you take in between sets and how hard you are working. Therefore any estimates would not be reliable. Just consider this to be an extra bonus to your weekly goals!
Circuit training is in the Fitness Tracker, since it is both a cardio and strength training workout. Click here for a description of circuit training.

Good evening, I am a newbie to this website. I have 40 pounds to lose and am determined to get this flubber off so my muscles can shine thru. I have a personal trainer and strength train 3 days a week and am doing cardio at least 5 times a week. Looking forward to participating in this website. So far, I enjoy everything i am doing.
My one question is why does the Fitness tracker not record calories for weight training. if I do strength training for 30 minutes and cardio for 30 minutes it is only giving me calorie credit for the cardio and it appears I am not making my goal. is there something i am not doing right? Thx.
