The Wii Mania is catching on and people are incorporating it into their daily lives. If you love the Wii like I do then you will want to know how many calories you can burn doing some of the basic games. Here is a breakdown Compliments of “Self Magazine.”
Here’s the Wii Fit breakdown: 30 minutes of
Free Run and Island Run burned 165 calories

Ok, so maybe the Wii doesn’t burn the most calories. However, it does beat just sitting around on the couch or not moving at all.
