I'm able to use the Wii Fit board that I bought almost 3 years ago. When I bought it I didn't know that it only had an upper limit of 330 pounds and it's been sitting in a corner unused (pretty much like the Wii itself, once I got my PS3 I barely touch the Wii). I decided to fire it up yesterday and found that it actually has me weighing less than my current scale which is nice when I want an ego boost
So far I'm not terribly impressed, though it would probably help if I had a better location in the house to work that didn't shake when I'm jogging or doing steps on it. However since the TV broke upstairs, I took the basement TV up there and I can't really do it down there. I'll see if I can find a way to work with it upstairs, I found the core exercises to be challenging at least so maybe I'll stick with that and get cardio elsewhere.
As a lifelong gamer, I'm interested in using games and software to get in other exercise besides walking (not to mention that in Wisconsin, I won't be able to walk outside without falling on my ass in a few weeks). Has anyone used some of the other exercise "games"? Are there any out there that are worth it? I'd prefer to have something I can put on the PS3 on my main TV so the whole house doesn't shake when I'm bouncing around.
