I have the WII and get upset that it doesn't register my movements. I think the Kinnect by XBox is suppose to be a lot better.

I have a Wii, I do have the Dance Dance, Michael Jackson, Zumba and Jillian Michaels games for it and while I do have great fun, I don't consider it a workout program. It is a fun way to get in extra movement on the weekends.

I have a Wii and the Wii Fit stuff with the board. They were a gift. While it is fun, and definitely more active than a traditional game system, I don't really consider it a great form of exercise. The dance games are fun and can be good cardio. It's easy to do things wrong and get hurt however. It's also a good way for me to get the kids off the couch and moving on days when everyone is feeling lazy.

The Wii is not a fitness program. It is a gaming system used to play video games. You can buy the Wii fit package that has the balance board, and you can buy workouts and active games to play with it. I like the bowling and the dance games, I've never tried the actual fitness programs on it. If you're looking to get it solely for the workout, honestly, I'd skip it. They are rather expensive, plus you'd have to buy all the games. I'd just invest in some good weights and a few DVDs or a gym membership (if you'd use it).

I kind of know what wii is, but want to know more & am wondering if it's a good exercise program. If it is, what's the best one for a beginner?

Only those who risk going too far can find out how far they can go.
