Enter the total canoeing time (min) and the body weight (lbs) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Canoeing Calories. 

Canoeing Calorie Formula

CC = CT / 60 * 200 * BW/150


  • CC is the Canoeing Calorie (calories)
  • CT is the total canoeing time (min)
  • BW is the body weight (lbs)

To calculate Canoeing Calories burned, divide the canoeing time by 60, multiply by 200, then divide by the body weight over 150.

How to Calculate Canoeing Calories?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Canoeing Calories.

  1. First, determine the total canoeing time (min). 
  2. Next, determine the body weight (lbs). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = CC = CT / 60 * 200 * BW/150.
  4. Finally, calculate the Canoeing Calories.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total canoeing time (min) = 120

body weight (lbs) = 136

Frequently Asked Questions

How does body weight affect the number of calories burned while canoeing?

The number of calories burned while canoeing is partially dependent on the individual’s body weight. Heavier individuals tend to burn more calories doing the same activity compared to those who weigh less because more energy is required to move a larger body mass.

Why is the canoeing time divided by 60 in the formula?

The canoeing time is divided by 60 in the formula to convert the total canoeing time from minutes to hours. This is necessary because the calorie calculation is based on an hourly rate.

Can I use the Canoeing Calories Calculator for kayaking or other paddle sports?

While the Canoeing Calories Calculator is specifically designed for canoeing, it might give a rough estimate for similar activities like kayaking. However, because each activity has different intensities and engages muscles differently, it’s best to use a calculator tailored to that specific activity for accurate results.

How can I increase the number of calories burned while canoeing?

To burn more calories while canoeing, you can increase the intensity of your paddling, extend the duration of your canoeing session, or incorporate intervals of high-intensity paddling followed by periods of rest. These methods will increase your heart rate and energy expenditure, leading to more calories burned.
