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.
Which Kinect Games to Lose Weight Work Best?
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.
I’m also recording calorie burn while wearing the Gymenist 2-pounds weighted gloves. This is based on the data pulled from my Fitbit Charge 3.
|Game Title||Console||w/o Gloves||w/ Gloves|
|Virtual Smash, from Your Shape: Fitness Evolved||360||13.20||14.19|
|Kinect Sports Season 2: Tennis||360||12.63|
|Avengers: Battle for Earth||360||12.49|
|Fighters Uncaged||360||In Progress|
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.
It’s all about gamifying fitness any way you can. Whether you play Kinect games to lose weight or rather take to the golf course, find something that keeps you engaged.
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.
You may have a better or worse experience with any of these titles.
