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:|
|Gold's Gym Cardio Workout||100|
|All Star Cheer Squad||177|
|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|
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.
