Hi count barb,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We do have several workout videos/programs in our database, but for any that are not there you have a couple options.

You can log your workout as “Circuit Training” or “Weight Lifting” which are both general exercises and will give you a rough estimate.

If you would like a more precise caloric burn, I would recommend a Heart Rate Monitor. If you know how many calories you have burned via a heart rate monitor or other tracking device, you can add it to your personal database with a few simple steps.

Begin the process to log an exercise to your diary, and search for the exercise.

On the search results screen, click “Add an exercise to the database” (website) or “Create a New Exercise” (mobile apps). Fill in the details and click “Add Exercise” (website) or “Done” (mobile apps).

If you are interested in devices that can track your actual use of calories, may we suggest looking into our third party integrations? Several of our integrations offer solutions for monitoring your calorie burn over the course of the day, and can update your MyFitnessPal calorie goals based on this data.

On the site you can find out more about our integrations at In our iOS apps, tap “More” then “Get Started” In our Android app, open the menu drawer then tap “App Gallery.”

Hope this helps! We wish you the best of luck in meeting and maintaining all your fitness goals!
