You need to consider several factors when looking at the calories burned on any piece of aerobic equipment. Factors such as your age, weight, duration, fitness level and workout intensity all factor into the calories you burn in a workout.

The Nordic Track Ski Machine

The Nordic Track ski machine can help you to burn calories and get in shape. According to Calorie Lab, a 150-pound person on a Nordic Track Ski Machine will burn 415 calories per hour for light effort, 496 calories per hour for moderate effort and 571 calories per hour for hard effort.

Measuring Aerobic Exercise Effort

The talk test is an easy way for you to measure the perceived intensity of aerobic exercise. Light-effort exercise should not interfere with your ability to talk or sing. Moderate exercise will allow you to talk, but you should not be able to sing. Hard effort will interfere with your ability to talk for more than a few words at a time. Consult a health care professional before initiating any exercise program.
