Versus Arthritis exercises with Leon

I have OA and have signed up for the June challenge, and hope to increase my steps over the month - I'm nearly 69 so nothing dramatic, but valuable progress for me!

I've also signed up for Nutracheck, counting daily nutritional intake, in an effort to lose weight. It would be really helpful to be able to enter calories used (on average - doesn't need to be exact) for a Leon workout.

Any ideas?

    Hello @SueL and welcome to the community, we are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience as well.

    I understand that you have OA and have signed up for the June challenge, well done and good luck. Our website has a lot of good information on it and I would suggest having a look around and using the search function. I've put a couple of links below to help

    Please do keep posting and let us know how you get on and I hope that others will connect with you and share their experiences. Also it was a good suggestion re calories and hopefully this will be picked up

    With very best wishes

    Hi @SueL

    Calories will relate to how much vigour went into your exercises with Leon.

    You can try googling calories for daily activities, I just found out 30 mins watching tv used 40 calories, 30 mins gardening or weeding 153cals. I'm sure you could do the same with exercise.

    Take care

    Hi @SueL

    I have passed this information on to the 'physical' team. No-one had mentioned this before but they are going to see what they can come up with in the future

    Thanks for the idea
