Elliptical
 
Maybe I'm missing something here, but I can't seem to find an exercise option for using the elliptical machine. I've logged it as a "stationary bike", but that's not quite right. I also had to enter it as "very light" effort to get the calories burned to equal what I actually did on the elliptical, which is throwing me off. Any suggestions?

A look at the FAQ's thread will answer your questions. I bumped the thread today just for you. ;)

I also could not find the FAQ's mentioned above. However I am recording elliptical trainer as "stair-treadmill-ergometer" it seems to track the cals pretty close to what the machine says I burn.

Why can they not add elliptical?Next to the treadmil, it;s probably the most popular piece of equipment. Surely a 30 second add of a record to the database is not exactly asking much.

I use 'ski machine', although the calorie count is a bit lower, this way I'm actually burning more than it seems :)
