The calories burned jogging in place varies depending on the person's weight, metabolism, intensity and time of their workout. Discovery Health states that jogging in place for 40 minutes burns 363 calories for people that weigh 150 pounds, while it burns 484 calories for those that weigh 200 pounds.
A person weighing more burns more calories in the same time frame as someone that weighs less. Increasing the intensity of jogging in place burns calories at a faster rate. However, this is challenging due to the limited range of the workout. Incorporating quick exercises using multiple body parts, such as air squats, crunches and push-ups, achieves more benefits in less time.
