Calories Burned Playing Sport

January 7, 2019 - 2 years ago

It’s a sad fact that sport often get overlooked as a serious contributor to your fitness. People scramble to sign up for marathons and bootcamps, but seldom aknowledge that their weekly game of Netball is in fact a MAJOR part of their fitness and health journey. 

We have seen HUGE transormations of members who have gone from not being active at all, to playing 3-4 nights a week, and shedding the kg’s. 

Not just that, we are passionate about the element of incidential excerise.  Running on a treadmill for 45 minutes is a CRAP idea, compared to sprinting around a Dodgeball court with a huge smile plastered on your face.

But here are the facts. We did some research and looked into how many calories, on average you burn in a 45 minute game of sport. Of course, this is based on the average age and weight of an average joe. 

Sport Calories burned per 45 mins Calorie equivalent
Softball 280 kcal McDonalds cheeseburger
Touch Footy 449 kcal 3.5 beers
Basketball 449 kcal Half a box of pizza shapes
Cricket 280 kcal 3 paddle pops
Flag Gridiron 505 kcal 2.5 bags of (single serve) doritos
Dodgeball 300 kcal (a guesstimate) 2 Margartia’s (Ole)
 Frisbee 449 kcal 2 ciders
Volleyball 168 kcal 1 packet of skittles
Hockey 449 kcal 1.5 hotdogs
Soccer 393 kcal 2 Krispy Creme donuts
Lawn Bowls 168 kcal 1 bubble o bill
Netball 449 kcal (a guesstimate)  4 Gin & Tonics

Do you agree with these numbers, do you disagree? We would love to hear from you. If you play sport please share with us how many calories you have burned at your fave sport!If you want to get specific, you can go here, enter your age, weight, height etc and it will spit out a good estimate for you. But even better, is a fitness watch. Your heart rate can determine the calories burned. Go hard or go home. 

Choose a nearby location, find a sport you used to love, and join us for a 10 week season, starting in the next few weeks.
