More and More Gyms Posting the Calories Burned Through Exercise

It would seem to me that the only rationale for the posting of gym based calorie burns would be for weight management.

Sure, some folks may well use them to maximize the calories they burn through exercise, but I can't help but wonder whether others will use them as a rationale for eating back their exercise? I also have real doubts about some of the numbers listed - to my eyes they seem rather inflated which in turn might present someone concerned with calories a false sense of security.

Seems to me this would be an area ripe for study.

Does posting this information help people with weight management, or paradoxically might it make it more difficult?
