I believe the heart rate watches/monitors such as Polar,(the kind you use with a chest strap) can give you a fairly accurate assessment of calories burned based on your metabolism. I think the more current treadmills found in the gyms like 24 hr. can be used with them.

I was so mad from my last post i forgot to mention people who load up way too much weight on the lat pulldown, grunt and scream, then drop the weights in a loud crash. After this they get up and look around to see who was watching. Reminds me of gorrillas who beat their chests.
I saw an advertisement in the health section of the L.A. Times for Vibram "Five Fingers" shoes. They look like a cross between socks and shoes. Might be good for squatting or deadlifting, but I don't think i'd want to be seen at the gym wearing them! Here's a link. http://www.vibramfivefingers.com
