MET (Metabolic Equivalent of Task) is a measure to estimate the energy cost of physical activity, independent of weight, where 1 MET = 1 kcal/kg/h. It is also known as “normalised energy”. This measure was introduced by Stanford University in California and has been used globally for more than 30 years.

The MET values used on dacadoo are based on the Compendium of Physical Activity that has been put together by Stanford University:
