Looking for the best Xbox Kinect games to lose weight? It’s sad that Microsoft and game developers have given up on the device, but I’ll still support it in any form.
Here is my breakdown of some of the best Kinect games to lose weight. I’ll be constantly adding games to this list, even though the Kinect is a dead technology. It’s still, in my opinion, one of the best ways to burn calories.
|Game Title||Console||Most Notable Trait||Calorie Burn|
|Avengers: Battle for Earth||360||Heavy upper body movement. Chest, shoulders, arms and back are all affected through fighting moves.||11.50|
I am a fan of the Xbox Kinect and what it can do to help people lose weight. Over the years, I’ve found it to be an incredibly valuable tool for burning calories.
Why? Because it keeps me engaged…and that’s the key to a successful exercise routine. It’s easy to get bored doing the same workout DVDs day after day. However, gamers like myself may find it easier to focus if there is a digital goal in mind.
Your Effort Dictates Actual Burn
Keep in mind, these numbers are based on my own personal experience. Using Fitbit devices, I monitor each playing session and record the results. The “Calorie Burn” above is an average number per minute I burn when playing. This is without using weights.
You may have a better or worse experience with any of these titles.
