At my gym there are a variety of classes by Les Mills. It would be cool if you could add these specific classes to the exercise tracker for exact calorie burn. Is this possible?

We also have a new Health and Wellness center that has aerobics classes and I am not sure how to apply them to my daily workout. Strength training as well. HELP Today I did 45 minutes of strength training and 1 hour aerobic class.smile

I would love to see KettleBell added to the list.

Hi Nikki,

I started Les Mills - Bodycombat at the gym recently. They had literature for this which stated 55 minutes of Bodycombat burns up to 545 calories. I did add this to the database, first time I've done that so maybe I've missed a step to share this. Hope this helps!

Under the search results box on the exercise page it says
"can't find what you're looking for? add an exercise to the database"

it should say "add an exercise to your personal database" as when you add it you're not adding the formula that would allow MFP to use your entry to calculate the burn for other users, so it's never shared with the public database. Only MFP added exercises once they've determined what formula/ equation to use are shared for all to use.

You can pick a "close substitute" from what IS in the database though

P90X, insanity, 30 day shred and other programs combining strength training and cardio can be logged as "circuit training"
walk to fit / walking / running on a treadmill can be logged as walking / jogging / running depending on pace
zumba can be logged as dancing, that's what it's marketed as for the Wii and via their infomercials at least.
