calorie burn rate info

I was wondering if the average calorie burn rate info is gender, age, and fitness-level specific or if it is an average and what it is based on?
Thanks

Maybe this isn't the best place to have posed this question because it still hasn't been answered. I really would appreciate knowing on what the calorie burn info is based - is it gender specific, age specific?
Please, please let me know <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" />

All I can say is if you can to burn calories then ride a bike. You can burn up to 400 calories per hour. You just need to do something to burn in more accurate time.

Caloric Burn rate is based on your mass and the amount of work you do. There is no 'golden' guide to how many calories you burn per activity that is at all close to reality. Caloric burn rates are a personal thing. That's why Crosstrainer uses a scale of 1-10 for the effort required in performing an activity.

1- No effort to 2- Severe effort.

We then use the cals/hr/lb figure multiplied by your weight and time spent doing the activity. If a person has access to facilities that provide them with more accurate values they can edit the cals/hr/lb figure to produce more accurate results.

This is the best way we have found to track calories burned so far.

Thanks, Greg
