Treadmill Incline Calculator

Hey all. I am looking for a way to calculate how many calories you burn on the treatmill, inclined.


I have a new 45 minute treadmill workout, and it starts by walking 5 minutes at 3mph, at a 1% incline. It next increases to walking 2 minutes at 4mph with a 3% incline.


My problem is that I don't really trust the calorie calculator on the treadmill. I've been trying to find sites that might calculate your calories based on incline and mph, but I can't find a thing.


I use The Daily Plate to add my foods and workouts, but it doesn't have anything for incline either.

The only way to get an accurate count of calories burned is to have it done professionally through measuring CO2 output, 02 intake in a VO2max test.
