Remember the battle over the estate of dead hedge fund manager Seth Tobias and his go-go boy pal Tiger?

I never did trust those calorie-counters on the cardio machines at the gym: “Even if you wanted to get a rough estimate of the calories an average person your size might burn at the gym, you might not want to trust the displays on cardio machines, with the possible exception of treadmills, said William Haskell, an exercise physiologist at Stanford. And with treadmills, the calories are not accurate if you hang on the bars. Dr. Haskell once studied people using treadmills. Hanging onto the rails reduced the number of calories burned by 40 to 50 percent. The same thing happened with stair-climbing machines. ‘I’ve seen people hanging on stair climbers who think they are doing 1,200 calories an hour,’ Dr. Haskell said. ‘They probably are doing 600 calories an hour.’ As for the calorie counts on machines like stationary bicycles and elliptical cross trainers and stair climbers, all bets are off, researchers said.”
