I've heard others say that the machines at the gym overestimate the calorie burn. If you could get or borrow a heart rate monitor that calculates calories for you, that might be a way to check up on it.

I know that my treadmill at home usually tells me double the calories my HRM does...but then again, it's so old I can't input my age/height/weight, and I'm kind of an outlier, being short.
