I use my Wii Fit and EA Active games all the time. It's my main source of exercise since I can't afford a gym membership and it's too cold to go outside right now.
The one thing I do though is make sure I put the effort in to get my heart rate up. So I'll continue moving in between exercises as the Wii is loading and I'll throw in some leg moves with the dance workouts to increase my calorie burn, etc.

Yes, I have noticed fantastic success with my Wii.
I bought my wii on the 28th of Dec and have used it since. In just over twenty days I have lost ten pounds.
I don't know if it is the Fit+, or the AE Sports active responsible for this, but I have felt my sides taking shape nicely. I weigh well over 200 pounds, and was pleasantly surprised to discover curves on my sides where tires once were. The belly ... is an entirely different matter.
Does the wii work?
- My face turns red, my hair is soaked, and I have a towel to wipe the sweat from my face before it drips onto the floor. Get the right programs and put an honest effort into it, and it will work for you.
I use Gold's Cardio to get the heart pumping
AE Sports Active - Overall body strength and training
Fit+ - for after workout stretches (Yoga) and core muscle strengthening and toning.
(My tracker reflects total weight loss, and not the unfortunate weight gain over Christmas and on vacation. If I included that . ... instead of 15 pounds lost it would say 25. There are always consequences to our decisions.)
May God grant us the ability to choose wisely, May God grant us the courage to say no, and may we be thankful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we do without.
Unemployed and we hate driving to gyms, so the Wii has been fantastic. We aren't couch potatoes anymore!
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

Welcome! I have been working out on my wii active for 2 weeks now. I re measured last night and I have lost a total of 3 inches! I contribute most of that to the wii, since I only went to the real gym twice. I use the wii active every morning, and sometimes the wii fit in the evenings, but not so much.
Hi My name is Cindy, i just rejoined SP and currently have the Wii fit and EA Active @ home catching dust. im going to make use of it today. Has anyone been lucky with the WII instead of the gym? Still cant find time to join a Gym!!
