Calories burned during Turbo Fire?
Showing 11 results.
Has anyone kept track of calories burned during Turbo Fire workouts? I don't have a "fancy" device to track them so I was hoping someone could tell me what theirs were if they kept track.

Thanks!

I don't have a heart rate monitor either (hoping to get one for Christmas!) but I have heard from multiple people that if they turbo with high intensity, it is possible to burn 800+ calories in 45-60 mins! How long have you been doing TF?

Well....I've been been doing Turbo Fire for a copuple of weeks now but just started over (at week 1) with my best friend. The first couple of weeks weren't too good because my eating habits were horrible! So, I'm trying to do better. How about you?

I have a Polar heart rate monitor and while I have never seen an 800+ calorie burn from 45 - 60 minutes I am definitely burning on average for the Fire 45 about 500 calories and with Fire 55 about 550. This is going at it pretty hard too! I am pretty stoked with those results. Definitely get a heart rate monitor if you can. Well worth the $80 I spent for it. I have the Polar FT7. emoticon

Is the Polar FT7 a watch & chest strap type? I've never used one before - do you just enter your age and weight into it for it to be accurate? thanks!

Yes, the Polar FT7 is a chest strap and watch type monitor. You do enter all your info for the most accurate results. emoticon It is seriously the best money I have spent in a while.

I have a Bodybugg and I don't burn anywhere near 800 calories.
For Fire 45 I usually burn around 450-ish. Fire 55EZ and Fire 60 are a little over 500.
The HIIT videos are usually really small burns. HIIT 15 will burn just around 150.

I also have a Polar HRM. I burn an average of about 100 cal per 10 minutes on all Turbo cardio workouts. I think that's awesome!

Hi Ladies,
I have the BODY BUGG and can burn 400-500 while doing the FIRE workoust and 150-200 during the HIIT workouts...the biggest thing is the afterburn...my body continues to burn about 10.3 cals per minute for the first 15-30 mins after, continues to go down until it levels out at 3.3 - 4 cals per min for the rest of the day if I stay busy around the house.


For example...yesterday...woke up and got on treadmil for 3 miles then went right into the HIIT 15 and for the entire day I clocked in 3557 cals from midnight to midnight.

Everyone is different but I recommend a heart rate monitor. It doesn't have to be fancy oe expensive but it will be accurate. As long as I'm really putting in the effort I burn about 10 calories a minute. I check periodically to make sure I'm not slacking.

Enjoy the program! It's awesome!
