Question about Endurance TF3i Folding Treadmill
Any ideas on how accurate the counters are on treadmills and other cardio equipment at the gym? My gym uses Precor equipment and I always wonder how close the display is to the actual calories I'm burning. Obviously it's probably a little closer if you put in your age and weight, but what about basic muscle mass and body composition?
Here's what the Sole exercise equipment makers say about calorie counters on exercise equipment. it's from their E-95 users manual: "Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is in a gym or at home, are not accurate and tend to vary widely. They are meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only way to measure your calorie burn accurately is in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every person is different and burns calories at a different rate. Some good news is that you will continue to burn calories at an accelerated rate for at least an hour after you have finished exercising!"

They are just overestimated most of the time and not accurate at all. A machine's calorie count could also be impacted by the kind of machine it is. Mostly all treadmills and cardio equipment work in the same way and calculate the calorie burn for the average person based on their weight and age.
The best option is to buy your own device and follow a nice fitness app to track your calories. There are plenty of workouts you can start at home and get a fit body. http://www.mirlasabino.com/

They are totally just a toy added feature with no accuracy. They assume everyone burns energy at the same rate which isn't right. It comes down to your own individual bodies chemical composition and reactions. Do your exercise everyday and use digital scales to keep an approximate record. And obviously eat a balanced diet.
