Doesn't sitting in a hot sauna burn calories? Is it considered cardio?

Thanks for taking the time to contact us. There are always some exercises that vary for each individual, making the calories burned difficult to calculate accurately. We like to research each exercise before adding it to our database, making sure we have the most precise formula. This formula is based on an average.
If you know roughly how many calories you are burning with a device like a heart rate monitor or activity tracker, then you can override the calories burned field by tapping directly on it and then put in your information. You can also add a new exercise yourself, just go to “cardiovascular” and then “create new exercise.” Your estimate will be added to your personal database, and not the main database.
All the best,
