I don't have a bugg, but I have a Fitbit. People who have had both say they are pretty close at calorie estimates. The Fitbit bases it's calculations on movement, using the same technology as a Wii remote. I'm game to post my daily numbers too. I don't track my food or activity here as I've found better places to do that, and double and triple entering gets old fast. But I track steps and calories, weight training and sleep. Sometimes food if I am struggling, although I eat Paleo, and counting calories is optional. BTW, I've had the Fitbit 7 months and I absolutely love it. It keeps me accountable, mostly to how much I am moving (or not) every day.

I am getting the bodybuggsp, and I am going to start a thread on here and post my WOD and the amount of calories I burned that day (the bugg is 90% accurate) so that everyone can get an idea of what I am burning. Take into consideration my weight (270's atm) and height (5'6") when you look at it. Also I am going to post how long my body burns extra (crossfit workouts do your body good for a few hours after you are done), just because I think it will be neat to know. I hope that helps everyone out!!

Optimism is the best gift you could ever give to yourself.

I just enter High Impact Aerobics and put the time of the workout. I know it is not really that but I just want to keep track of the workouts.
I wish Spark would fix this issue.
I will bring it up on the team leader forum and get back to you if I find something ourt.

I just did a little test...I entered in the same time for my workout (29 minutes) as Calisthenics: Moderate, Calisthenics: Vigorous, and Circuit training. The calories burned came out as:

Calisthenics: Moderate - 270
Calisthenics: Vigorous - 480
Circuit training - 364

So...depending on how rigorous of a WOD you have, you could choose one of the three to get close to actual calories burned. It's alla guess, but better than nothing, right?

Your attempt may fail, but never fail to attempt.

CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.

I use Circuit training in the cardio section. I mess with the minutes based on intensity of the workout to get closer to what I think actual calories burned is (and try to be more conservative).

In addition I use the Strength training section. I have it set so I track my own. They have many exercises on their existing list that we can use, but you can also just add your own. This helps you track number of sets, number of reps, and weight. But it does not calculate calories burned, which is why it is in addition to the cardio tracking.
