If you go to her site and check out each of her videos, there is a breakdown for how long each mile takes. I have the quick 4 mile one, I think (haven't used it in forever) and it is like a 15 minute mile, 2-11 minute miles and a 12 minute mile or something like that. Each take about 15 minutes to complete. To track, I would do walking 12 min. mile, 15 minutes, walking 11 min. mile, 30 minutes, walking 12 min. mile, 15 minutes.
Or something to that extent. Hope that helps. I forget the actual time it takes to complete each mile.

as you see in some of the other posts & especially the article referenced below, you do burn calories during strength training ,however it's too complicated to determine your actual count for simple fitness purposes. you burn calories albeit only a few even while you're sleeping or just sitting in a Lazyboy, but those don't amount to much ;-) Keep tracking your cardio minutes for your tally.

You do not burn calories doing strength training. It is only for toning the muscles. There is an article about that, I just saw it. Calories are burned during cardio. Unless you are doing circuit training. As much as I be sweatin, I've got to be burning something:)

MUDDY1976 - For Wii Fit Advanced Step I do the same as MAHOUNEKO said -- track as Wii Fit high intensity. For the Free Step, I typically track as walking and I pick the walking speed that seems closest to how fast I actually did the free step since some days I do it much faster than others.
Hope that helps.

SCHMEGGO, Heart rate monitors are only for cardio and not for strength training. Although your heart rate is elevated during strength training, it is very different than during cardio and the number of calories you burn according to your heart rate monitor will not be accurate since your hrm thinks that you're doing carido. Strength training actually doesn't burn very many calories. The benefits is in the building of muscle and not the calorie burn. Here's the ask an expert answer to the question.
i was wondering kinda the same thing. i noticed that my strength minutes don't show calories. how do i know if i am burning up my weekly goal? is there a way to figure out how many calories i am burning?
Normally Spark People doesn't count calories for strength training exercises because of the great differences in weight used. If you want to add it in under user entered cardio it's up to you as you know what your calorie burned were.
speaking of calories during a video. Does anybody know how many calories the leslie sansone videos burn? I have the walk/jog 2 1/2 miles and I think it's the power series? It's walking and weights/interval training it works out to 2 miles. But I can't find how to log them or how many calories. Same with the wii fit free step. Help.
I wore my new heart monitor for the videos (I had to do yesterdays and today's during my workout). I burned 160 calories during both videos (one of them was also repeated). Is it okay to enter these calories in the cardio section of our fitness tracker, so it goes towards our weekly calories?
