To be able to work hard enough to burn 600 Cals in an hour, you have to be REALLY fit.

Not according to the calorie counters on my gym's Precor ellipticals. Can do over 500 calories by their count in a 28 minute fat burning workout with a five minute warm down with quite modest exertion. They wouldn't put it up in digital numbers calculated to three significant figures if it weren't completely accurate, right?
