Thanks so much for doing this research for us. It's a very straight forward way for us to record our exercise and keep us motivated! emoticon

I just realized that I never updated this topic.
I asked the Oxycise! website - their support is emoticon - what I should count it as on a fitness tracker.
Their answer was that it burns more calories than stationary bicycling when done with gusto and so I could count it as stationary bicycling to get a close calories burned count. (I had forgotten that there was a study conducted to prove that.) I couldn't find the actual study on the website - I think it is in the Oxycise! book - but here is a link that discusses it : www.oxycise.com/whatis.htm . Just scroll down to the subheading "University Study". Since that time I have been recording my O! (as we Oxycisers have fondly nicknamed it) minutes everyday under "My Fitness" page - Cardio - Stationary Bicycling: moderate (bike, biking). I figure that I am not getting all of my calories recorded but some is better than none.

Those of you who do O! will appreciate being able to record it too!

Breathe deep!

A million thanks for your suggestion, MAHLIGIRL! And now that I'm up and about, I'm off to do my Lifelift breathing emoticon

Hi! I'm new here, as of about a minute ago! But I've been doing Life lift breathing for a while now. I just count it as low impact aerobics on my fitness log. I figured it's probably worth about the same number of calories, and I want to get credit! :) BTW, I'm SO glad you all changed this team to include Oxycise and Life Lift! Thank you!

I really appreciate your trying. I guess I will have to send the question to Spark People. Thank you again!

I was also trying to enter this into MY fitness program, but darn, I couldn't figure it out. I could only see cardio and strength training. The truth be told, I am not very computer-savvy.

I guess that means that there is no way to enter it under My Fitness so that it can count toward my weekly goals. Is that true? Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I can't find oxycise among the exercises and I can't seem to add it to my exercises. Do any of you know how to do that? Thanks.
