Purpose: To determine the energy expenditure and relative exercise intensity during a BODYJAM session. Methods: Nineteen female (age 20.1 ± 1.14 years) subjects completed a maximal treadmill test and a 55-minute BODYJAM session. Heart rate and RPE recorded throughout the BODYJAM session. The HRs that were recorded during the workout were inserted into individual HR/VO2 regression equations to estimate VO2 and energy expenditure. Results: It was found that subjects exercised at an average of 73 ± 3.5% of %HRmax and 52 ± 6.6% of %VO2max. Energy expenditure averaged 393 ± 86.4 kcal/session and RPE during the workout averaged 11.5 ± 1.91. Conclusion: The BODYJAM session meets the standards set forth by ACSM to improve cardiorespiratory fitness and body composition, despite being perceived a light exertion.
