Gym session - Calories burned
I struggle with how it takes 2 minutes to consume 300 calories but 60 minutes to burn it off!

When you go to the gym -  how many calories do you tend to burn per session?

I have just started back at the gym and have completed 3 sessions so far.

Treadmill 20 mins (3.5 - 8.5 speed  and 0.0 - 5.5 gradient)
Bike 10 mins
Reclyner bike - 5mins
Arm rotator - 4 mins
Treadmill 8 mins (3.5 - 8.5 speed  and 0.0 - 5.5 gradient)

My first session last Thursday burned 273 calories and gave me a performance indicator of 11

My second session on Friday burned 294 calories and gave me a performance indicator of 12 (I manually over rid my program in places to increase, speed, resistance and gradients)

My third session today burned 302 calories and gave me a performance indicator of 12.

I have added for the next workout - 5 mins on a wave machine exercising my outer thighs and 5 mins on a sit down chest press at 10kg. Oh and an extra 2 minutes on the recliner bike

My target is to build up to burn 500 calories a session.

Also does anyoneknow how many calories a 45minute session of Water Aerobics burns?
