    About the Calorie Calculator

    Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

    When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

    Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

    About

    In 1887, the town of LaVilla, with more than 3,000 residents merged with Downtown Jacksonville. For nearly a century, LaVilla saw the growth of major African-American civic, social, church and business groups which are evident in some of the historic buildings still standing. LaVilla was also a cultural center, with entertainers like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Ray Charles frequently visiting this jazz hotspot.
    James Weldon Johnson an American author, politician and early civil rights advocate was born in Jacksonville in 1871 and attended Edwin M. Stanton School, then an African-American school in Jacksonville. Johnson converted Stanton from an elementary school to
    a twelve year school for African-Americans. There is an unprecedented opportunity to bring Lavilla back with its significant history and heritage as the cornerstone to the neighborhood.
