I enter it as "walking" and adjust the speed to match the calories burned.

Being new to Fit Day I find it odd that available activities listed include some things such as walking to the outhouse but does not include common fitness equipment. Also, I incorrectly thought before signing up for Premium service that I could actually add any activity. This is not the case.

Default Pilates?

I don't seem to see Pilates as an activity am I just missing it? If not, what do you suggest I substitute in FitDay for my 1 hr Pilates class (on machines)?

Not the best, but in the absence of somethingelse, I select the Yoga/stretching option. I expect it undervalues the calorie burn..

I use calisthenics, because I do mine with pretty heavy resistance bands.

There is something similar, stair-treadmill ergometer. When I use that in place of my eliptical, the calories burned is very close.

The stair-treadmill is more accurate to what my elliptical says I burn

I, too, would like to see an elliptical trainer selection. I've been modifying "running." Every other site I've used to keep track of exercise has the elliptical listed, why not this one?

Question Pilates

Is there a possibility of adding pilates to the activity list? 30 minutes of advanced pilates is burning more calories according to a site another used linked to at healthstatus.com than FitDay estimates for 30 minutes of high impact aerobics, so I'm confused as to which to 'believe'.
