  • The ergometer can be added to the fitness tracker manually. Go to "fitness tracker" and underneath the "Search" button is a link for adding your own exercises. Click it and enter the min on the ergometer. Then enter the calories burned which are approx 3-4 calories per min. Use 3 if yours was a casual effort and / or if you are a smaller person and estimate 4 if you went all out and / or are a larger person. Hope this helps.
    I really wish that an ergometer was in your fitness tracker.....
  • Like the article. But what does it look like.
  • it might not be a bad idea to have the ergo meter or arm cycle in the area to log your fitness. seems really stupid to me to have articles etc and then no way to track it. NOT HELPFUL
  • Gianna345 go to search under fitness. It's there you must put in the time spent, so SP will be able to estimate calories burned. Good Luck.
  • I purchased a STRIDE at Walmart It's like $20. You can use it for your arm on the table or on the floor and pedal. You can also add as much tension as you wish.
  • I have a similar comment to the one below... I cannot add this exercise because it's not in either the aerobics section nor the weight training section. Bummer.

    Well, I'll post it on the message boards as a suggestion.
  • The links may not entirely work, but I was able to search for the ergometer on the company's website once there. HOLY COW! Even the table-top ones are expensive!
  • I could not get the links to work, either. :o(
    could not get to the links
  • The links in this article don't work.
  • Where is the picture of this machine?
  • I have a c5-6 spinal cord injury and have a Colorado Sport Cycle made by It is a little pricey, but the overall benefit is well worth it. With out it I would get in very little cardio.
  • The question for me is, how would you include the ergometer in your fitness log? It doesn't seem to be one of the options.
    The gym I just joined has one, and at first I never thought I would use it. I used it today and I really liked it. I don't have any physical limitations other than being in really bad shape. Today, I was able to get in 60 minutes of cardio. I used the treadmill, elliptical and stationary bike for about 15 minutes each. Between these activities, I would use the arm ergometer to keep my heartrate up and let my fat little legs rest. It really worked out well for me!
