The best way to track it, is to wear one of those chestbands that send a signal to a watch, which calculates how many calories you burn based on your height, weight, gender by monitoring your heartrate.
Then you calculate how much points your workout was by xxcalories/40 = xxpoints (1 point is approx. 40 cals).
Example, you burned 923 calories, divided by 40 = 23,075 round it down to 23pp.

Hiya, where can you get one of these bands??? I bought a WW pedometer and you can turn it onto activity mode...... After an intense 50 minute work out including lots of cardio it gives me a measly 2PP's!!!!

So I'd be intrigued to see what PP's are calculated with the band you mentioned??? Thanks in advance Xxxx

Lots of shops sell them, Amazon is a good place to look.
I have this one Beurer PM 25 Heart Rate Monitor - Silver/Dark Blue: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Leisure and I'm very pleased with it!
It comes with the chest-strap btw.
I really like it because not all of these kind of watches let you enter information such as height and age, just weight and gender most of the time, but this one is very percise and doesn't cost an arm or leg, since some of these type of watches cost as much as 300 quid.
It also calculate how much grams of fat you've buned as well, which is interesting.

I think 1AP = 70 calories, I know for pointing food it's 40 but was told by our leader that it's not the same for AP. you might want to check with yours. I agree a heart rate monitor is great for exercising

I do workout quite a lot, 5x a week and usually 1 1/2 hours or 2 hours each time (and burn between 900 to 1400 cals), and so far haven't even touched my ap's, but it's good to know it's cals/70 instead of 40 if I ever want to use them for food
I had no idea it was 70 for an ap, cause I must admit that the online membership isn't very informative (I used their search engine and it came up with nothing) and the active points calculator doesn't even ask how many calories you've burned.
Just did a quick google and wiki confirms you're indeed right that 1 ap = 70 calories.
