Cal counter, and what the Gym tread mill states
Did my incline walk today at an avg speed of 3.5 for 68 min at a 15% incline, my treadmill gave calories burned 1273, when I go to count for my incline walk on the site via my workout traker it does not give me any thng close to what my treadmill stated. On top of all of this I also did a strength routine that this site gave me and did not get counted for those calories either. CAN SOME PLEASE HELP AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG?

Treadmill cals reading seems way high
1273 calories burned is a ton. Maybe if you where running at a fast pace for 68 minutes, but not incline walking. What the site says is probably in the ball park; it may be a bit low because your speed and incline are high.

Regarding the strength routine calories burned, the site will be adding that feature to the workout tracker very soon. In the interim, you can get a general amount from the calories burned calculator. Good work!

Adding exercises
The site will also enable new exercises to be created in the near future, so that incline walk at a 15% incline and 3.5 speed could be an exercise with very accurate calories burned data.
