*How do we calculate these numbers? Total number of KBF games bowled during a fixed time frame.
Every 3 games bowled = 1 mile walked. Every game bowled = approx 160 lbs based on an 8lb ball and 2 balls per frame for 10 frames. 100 calories are burned in an hour of bowling. # of games bowled in an hour is approx. 3.5 / number of games bowled = amount of total time bowling.
