Enter the total time you spend in an infrared sauna into the calculator to do determine the total number of calories burned.

Infrared Sauna Calories Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total calories burned in an infrared sauna:

C = T/60 * 500
• Where C is the number of calories burned
• T is the total time spent in the sauna (minutes)

To calculate the number of calories burned from a sauna, divide your time spent in the sauna by 60, then multiply by 500.

How many calories are burned in a sauna?

The current estimates on calories being burned in an infrared sauna are in the range of 400-600 calories depending on the person and temperature the sauna is at.

The higher the temperature and the larger the person, the more calories they will burn.

How to calulate calories burned in the sauna?

Example Problem:

The following example problem outlines the steps required to calculate the number of calories a person burns while sitting in a sauna:

First, determine the total time spend in the sauna. For this example, the total time spent in the sauna is 45 minutes.

Next, determine if the sauna is at maximum temperature or minimum temperature. For this example, the sauna is in the average operational range.

Finally, calculate the number of calories burned using the formula above:

C = T/60 * 500

C = 45/60 * 500

C = 375 calories
