Hi!! I just discovered this group and sooo glad I did. I live at the top of a very steep hill, and I don't want to walk..cause when I go down, I have to get back up, so I plan on using my wii games and wii fit. I love to dance and did classical ballet, tap, and jazz all my childhood and teen years and have been in tap classes as recently as 3 years ago. The only reason I'm not now is MONEY LOL LOL I love just dance 1 and 2 and have bought the wii fit dance academy, plus I have the biggest loser, wii fit active and hope to soon get the michael jackson experience
I'm Kathy, 46 from Australia, married with 2 kids aged 11 and 14, and lots of furbabies
Hi, I love using my Wii to exercise. I use WiiFit Plus, and all of the Just Dance games. I have Zumba and a couple other Wii exercise games, but my favorite are the Just Dance games. I will have to look into the Exerbeat, as this is the first I've heard of that one :)
My favorite words to live by:
Live life fully while you are here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect--just an excellent example of a human being. ~Anthony Robbins

I too got a WiiFit for Christmas 2010 and used it the first week after then probably once a week for the first 6 months of the year. Then in June I had a wicked medical scare and it just struck me "I can not live like this anymore" I started with the WiiFit Plus and just recently got ExerBeat. I was a dancer before I gained all my weight and have really enjoyed this one. I like having the rhythm and you burn quite a few more calories than the other.
I am excited to be doing this and grateful to have so much support on this site!
I have a Wii Fit that I received for Christmas (2 Christmases ago) and it has been gathering dust in the corner of my room for over a year. Since we have had over 55+ days at or over 100 degrees in the great state of Texas, I needed to find a way to get my cardio done indoors. I think my Wii will do the trick.
I've got some great ideas from this Team's posts already so I'll be heading to the store to pick up a few new games.
See you around the boards!
Not all those who wander are lost

Hi, My Mii name is WeWii and I'm addicted to Exerbeat. I've been a sparkperson for almost a year now, mostly focused on diet and general exercise. The only Wii exercise game I liked until Exerbeat was Gold's Gym Cardio, and that only so-so. Exerbeat is so much fun it's all I want to do now for exercise. Hope I don't get sick of it!

My name is Temesha, and I am from Virginia. I joined Spark to help me lose weight in order to improve my blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol and to improve my chances of conceiving. I have always loved video games, so I am hoping the Wii fitness games will keep me motivated to work out. I look forward to taking this journey with all of you!
I have already completed a 30-Day Challenge on EA Sports Active. I will be starting the 6-Week Challenge on EA Sports Active More Workouts next week. After that, I plan to move up to EA Sports Active 2. Has anyone had success with using the leg band from EASA 2 to hold the nunchuck in order to do EASA and EASA-MW exercises? I hate the leg band from the first game, so I'm hoping using the leg band from the second game will work.
I have heard so many positive reviews here and on YouTube of Walk It Out and My Fitness Coach, so I have also ordered those. WIO should arrive this afternoon. Can't wait to try it out..
Hi , I just joined Wii exercise team. I received my Wii last Christmas. I used it constantly for the first month and then injured my knee so it's been collecting dust since. My knee is ( mostly ) healed so I'm ready to get back to it and hopefully when the weather cools I'll have anchored it firmly in my daily routine.
