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.
