How many calories do Legs, Bums & Tums or Body Balance burn?


My local gym offers some classes, which I cannot find in the Exercise Database. Can you please tell me how many calories (in general) a persons burns when doing the following: LBT for 1 hour (Legs, bums, Tums) and Body Balance for 1 hour?



Our expert says...


For a Body Balance class the calorie expenditure for a 1 hour class would be approximately 212-240 calories. For a Legs, Bums and Tums class the calorie expenditure would be approximately 280-305 calories. Where along the calorie ranges given you would sit, will be based on:

- Your current level of exercise experience

- The quality of your technique and effort within the classes

- The content of the classes ? with a Legs, Bums and Tums class, different instructors will have different components within their class and therefore the demand and calorie expenditure can vary.

Hope this helps
