It is possible to estimate the calories burned in conditioning classes in health clubs by using the MET data (Metabolic Equivalent of Task).
But weight is required in order to calculate calories burned.
I use Met Calculations for the following activity: health club exercise, conditioning classes (MET= 7.8).
Calories are per 1 hour of activity(same for male or female).
50 kg (man/woman) = 390 calories.
55 kg (man/woman) = 468 calories.
60 kg (man/woman) = 468 calories.
65 kg (man/woman) = 507 calories.
70 kg (man/woman) = 546 calories.
75 kg (man/woman) = 585 calories.
80 kg (man/woman) = 624 calories.
85 kg (man/woman) = 663 calories.
90 kg (man/woman) = 702 calories.
95 kg (man/woman) = 741 calories.
100 kg (man/woman) = 780 calories.
