It is possible to estimate the calories burned in aerobic Wii Fit by using the MET data (Metabolic Equivalent of Task).
But weight is required in order to calculate calories burned.
I use Met Calculations for the following activity: activity promoting video game (e.g., Wii Fit), moderate effort (e.g., aerobic, resistance) (MET= 3.8).
Calories are per 1 hour of activity(same for male or female).
(man/woman) weighing 50 kg = 190 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 55 kg = 228 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 60 kg = 228 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 65 kg = 247 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 70 kg = 266 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 75 kg = 285 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 80 kg = 304 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 85 kg = 323 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 90 kg = 342 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 95 kg = 361 calories.
(man/woman) weighing 100 kg = 380 calories.
