Calorie Calculator

To determine the number of calories burned per hour during your workout, Concept2 Performance Monitors use a formula based on a 175 pound individual. Use this calorie calculator to determine the true number of calories per hour you burn for your weight, as well as the total calorie burn for your workout.

To use this calculator, you need the following values:

  • Your weight.
  • The average calories/hour burned for your entire workout as displayed by your PM. See below for more information on how to find this on your PM.
  • Your workout duration.

Formula Used

The formulas used in this calculator are as follows:

  • True calories/hour burned = Calories on the PM - 300 + (1.714 * weight)
  • Calorie burn for your workout = (True calories/hour burned * duration)/3600

Which Calorie Value Do I Use?

To use this calculator, you need to obtain the calorie value from the workout summary (instructions below), NOT the calorie value that you see on your last stroke/pull.
