How many calories can you burn using this console - an example
Many people are using the Kinect to get fit and one thing they want to know is how many calories can you burn while working out. This video shows a guy working out on Kinect Sports. He does some boxing and some track and field and works out how many calories he burns. In just under 20 minutes he burns around 118 calories using Kinect sports, meaning that in an hour he could average 354 calories. This pretty good and much more fun than the gym.
Burn calories while you dance to a range of different music such as rnb, hip hop and pop. There is an unlimited number of dances as you are free to download more as and when you want.
Zumba Fitness Kinect Dance Game
If you enjoy dancing you may prefer the Zumba fitness game to the other sports games available for the Kinect.

If you are unsure what the game may be like I would encourage you to watch the Zumba Fitness demo video below. As with all forms of dancing this game will help you burn calories and achieve weight loss provided you are following a healthy balanced diet.
