The Wii gaming console released by Nintendo has helped people lose weight because of the physicality of the games. Games such as Just Dance along with others require brisk movement to score points and play the game.
So how many calories do you burn playing Just Dance?
Of course this number depends on a variety of factors including size, fitness level, age and gender. It also depends on how long you play the game for too.
The average person will burn between 175-250 calories per 30 minutes of playing Just Dance. That’s a pretty good workout! It really is no different than being involved in an aerobics dance class.
The average 3 minute song will burn between 17 and 25 calories. Just Dance is a great way to lose weight, increase your cardiovascular conditioning, and have fun with your entire family. Forget the membership at the gym and do Just Dance 3-5 times per week and you’ll seriously be able to lose some weight.
One pound of fat is 3,500 calories. Let’s say you played Just Dance for one hour and burned a total of 500 calories. That means you would burn enough calories to lose a pound of fat after playing Just Dance only seven times.
If you get bored with Just Dance you can purchase Just Dance 2 and Just Dance 3 for a whole new set of songs and fat-burning dance moves.
