Use this personalized calculator to find out how much calories you burn when doing sports. We use your personal base rate and calorie turnover to calculate more precisely what your body uses during the given time.
Often you only find an universal value for calorie consumption for sports without consideration of the Athletes age, gender or weight. But a 55kg lady obviously won't burn the same amount of calories during a half hour run as a 110kg men. It is pure physics, that is why we use the Metabolic Equivalent to calculate a more precise result for you as it takes your physics into consideration. If you are interested, read this very comprehensive Wikipidia article about the Metabolic Equivalent.
The use of this calculator is very straight forward, put in your age, weight, gender and the exercising time. Click the Calculate Calories button and the table below will load your data for the sports.
