How many calories do you consume in a bicycle ride? How many do you burn off when you go swimming? It depends on the weather, but on your body weight too! Find out with this online calculator.

Calculate the calories burned by each physical activity: enter into the program your weight (in kg) and the time (in minutes) you spend on the physical activity: the result is the number of calories burned.

Notes

It should be noted that the calculations are estimated for an adult, and may vary from individual to individual based on:

  • Degree of training: An untrained person tends to burn more calories than a trained person who undertakes less physical activity
  • Age: The number of calories burned tends to be higher in younger people, and gradually tends to decrease with age
