We analyze caloric consumption by practicing our favorite hobby by comparing it with other sports, and you will be surprised at the calories you burn in your Airsoft games.
Well, maybe this question comes to mind the day we consider losing weight and the inevitable question comes to mind:
How many calories do we burn when we are jogging across the Airsoft field?
Keep in mind that in addition to moving, we carry all the tactical equipment, to which we add the weight of our replica airsoft, ammunition, transmitter, accessories; it all adds up.

Here we are going to present you some data and the benefits that our favorite hobby gives us:
Moving tactically and running you're already burning calories
During Airsoft games and events you run, walk, climb, sprint ...
It has been shown that running at 9 km / h burns twice as many calories per minute as walking at 6 km / h.
