Calories burned at a Body Vive class

Hi there I am going to try "Body Vive class" at Virgin Active tomorrow. Any idea of how to input that with calories?


Our expert says...

Hi There,

Thanks for your question.

Body Vive is part of the BTS (Body Training Systems) brand which is choreographed to music using bands and vive balls. This is generally a low impact aerobics class so an appropriate calorie burn figure would be approximately 322 calories per hour.

I have added this to the exercise diary so if you now click on 'At the Gym' > 'Gym Classes' you'll see 'Body Vive' in the list.

Just to let you know, the calorie burn figure may be slightly different to the above for you as we do take into account your current weight so we can give you a more specific and personal calorie burn figure. The above is based on a 10st woman.

I hope this helps and you enjoyed the class!
