Calories Burned Playing Wii Fit Games

I'm in full support of anything that gets you off the couch and moving, so I'm a fan of the Wii Fit. Although many say that exercising with the Balance Board may not compare to a real workout, anything is better than nothing, right?

To find out how many calories you'll burn working out with the Wii Fit,


I used our Calorie Burner Counter Calculator to calculate the calories burned based on a 130-pound woman. I couldn't find calculations for specific Wii games, so I used calculations based on similar activities and intensity levels. Just like with any type of fitness, the more active and intense, the more calories you'll burn.

Activity: Calories burned per 30 minutes:
Skate It 85
Gold's Gym Cardio Workout 100
All Star Cheer Squad 177
We Ski 118
Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 100
EA Sports Active 89
Don King Boxing 180
Ski and Shoot 118
Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2 (using the Dance Mat) 207
Yoga 118
Tennis 170
Bowling 39
Baseball 95
Golf 75

Do you play any of the Wii games regularly? Do you wear your heart rate monitor when doing so? If so, I am curious how many calories you burn — tell me in the comments section below.
