The Mayo Clinic notes that the number of calories a person burns in an hour of exercise depends on the individual's weight and the type of exercise. A 160-pound person burns 533 calories in an hour of high impact aerobics, needing 6.5 hours of such exercise to burn 3,500 calories, two more hours than a 240-pound person needs.
