Zumba Core (Wii) Calories

Quote  |  Reply
Hi, I recently purchased Zumba Core for Wii. It came with a belt that you place around your hips with the Wii remote to measure calories. I did a medium intensity workout for 1 hour and it said I burned 600 calories! I'm 5' 4" and weigh 138. I'm also 13 years old. That's great, but I'm a little skeptical. It seemed too easy to burn that much. Though, after, my leg muscles were twitching and I was a little sore. Anyways, is this accurate? Is it even possible?? Thanks!

If you had fun doing it, than who cares!  Sustainable exercise is activity that you enjoy doing.  When you attach numbers to it (calories burned, for example) it will become a disastrous, self-punishing, chore.
