    Hi Jessie,

    here is the calculation for working out your activity points

    High Intensity Level (rapid & deep breathing, sweating after 3 - 5 mins)

    current weight in lbs X no. of minutes X 0.0008077 = Activity Points

    Moderate Intensity Level (often & deep breathing, sweating after 10 mins)

    current weight in lbs X no. of minutes X 0.000327 = Activity Points

    Low Intensity Level (regular breathing, no sweating)

    current weight in lbs X no. of minutes X 0.000232 = Activity Points

    For example i do 60 minutes of zumba at high intensity

    228lbs X 60 X 0.0008077 = 11AP

    Hope this helps. :) xx

    THANKS HUN SO IS THIS RIGHT 141 ib X 45 mins x 0.8077 =

    where did you get these calculations from where is the 0.8077 from ??

    your u get 11 pp from zumba for a hour that seems quite a lot ?

    u prob burn 400 cals

    you've missed some decimal places hun -

    141 ib X 45 mins x 0.0008077 = 5APs

    The calculations are from the USA weight watchers website & are the cals behind the working out of the APs.

    I do 2 different zumba classes & one of them I burn on average 700 - 800 cals in the hour which is the 11AP & the other class i only burn between 500 - 600 cals so the APs from that are only 7AP.

    You can also work it out that 40 calories = 1pp so if you know how many calories you've burnt thats an easy way to do it.
