What is MET?

MET stands for metabolic equivalent of task, we use MET value to estimate energy expenditure. The MET value is the ratio between the working metabolic rate and resting metabolic rate, which refers to the amount of energy being expended relative to the amount of time spent doing Country or Western dancing.

* There is no way for METs to accurately estimate the energy cost of physical activity in individuals when taking into account differences in weight, adiposity, age, gender, and intensity of movement, as well as environmental conditions. The result is that energy expenditures will vary from individual to individual even when the same activity is performed.
