Exclamation For people using Fitday...and question about logging exercise

Hey!

I was just wondering...seeing as Fitday has no listing for the elliptical machine, what do you guys use? I don't really trust the calorie listing on the machine, so i don't want to try and just fudge it under a different name to get the same amount. Anyone have a solution?

Thanks!
Vanessa

Since I use the elliptical daily, I wanted to have this on my FitDay as well. I just added it as a custom exercise. I used the data I get off the machine, but scaled it down a little. You can also go to various websites and plug in your stats age and find out how many calories you're burning on an elliptical then put this info in a custom created exercise in your FitDay. Hope this helps!

"Ski Machine" - its the closest I've come to my burn per minute according to my HRM, so thats what I use.

ok. THanks ladies. Ski Machine sounds like as good a thing as any (and the closest.) Plus, then I dont have to do the five extra minutes of work.

Thanks all!
