how many calories burned in trx class?

Does anyone have a good estimate of how many calories are burned during a typical TRX class (1 hour) at the gym?

I have a heart rate monitor, but I'm not sure if it would be accurate for TRX since it is not really 'cardio' based, at least I do not believe it is.

I am trying to track my calories in and out, so a fairly conservative estimate would be fine, I just do not have the slightest idea what to use =)

Thank you!

HR monitors are accurate in any context. In fact usually moreso with with lower intensity workouts.

I would estimate 300-500 for an hour class. Choose the 300 if you're trying to lose weight.

Estimating the number of calories burnt in a TRX class (or any fitness class for that matter) all depends on a number of factors:

1- How many minutes you are ACTUALLY exercising (continually)?
2- At what type of intensity you are exercising during those minutes?
3- How much you weigh specifically?
4- Are you male or female?

I do like the suggestion to utilize a hear rate monitor to measure your calorie expenditure as well as underestimating your calorie burn if you are trying to lose weight (or use the lower end of the range).
