I'll be the first to say it but this is highly unlikely. No matter how you look at it. Let's say OP was on the machine for 10 minutes (I'm assuming it's more because 10 minutes of saying at the gym?). Now let's say the repairman was at 1 minute max, there's no speed that can make the repair guy catch up even if OP goes slow.
If you want the machine to count your calories, you usually have to enter your age and weight into the machine. Now, there is a good chance that the maintenance man was in a hurry and clicked something random for both measurements, like "11" for age and "40 lbs" for weight, leading the machine to count calories much faster. Myth.busted?
This isn't an lol. The OP is actually out there getting in a workout. Just keep it up, don't worry about what any1 else is doing. Slowly you'll progress. You should be proud of yourself for testing yourself with an intense workout. Maybe it was designed for something other then burning calories.
69- do you know op personally? no didn't think so. so who are you to tell someone you've never met that they are "kidding themselves" about a workout being intense. whats easy going to a very fit person may well be very intense to someone not as fit. you don't know op's situation,maybe they are very unfit,or just coming out of healing from an injury,or have a condition which makes working out abit tougher for them. don't judge so quickly.
maybe thats what was wrong with it? be proud of yourself anyway. :)
ever consider he didn't fix the machine right and the calories burned count was wrong?
