I like the idea of turning the wii info into usable feedback. I especially find it difficult to translate the wii to strength exercises that I am tracking on Sparkpeople. i use calories burned for things like from the aerobics page and some of the things on the wii fit plus tab (not sure what it is called, at a friends house so can't just look at the screen), like the bike for my aerobic exercises. I usually use a generated wii workout on my non-strength days, and a treadmill on strength days. The most calories I can burn on the wii is free run in place for 254 calories, but 3.5 mph at 5 degree incline can give me 300 in 30 minutes. I am not sure that the wii fit age really means anything. The wii fit age doesn't really correspond with weight change as much as performance on the body tests. I have difficulty with the standing still and balance walking in place, so if those are the tests I am older than the memory and dual balance days. My chronological age is 49, wii fit age is usually in the high 20s low 30s, so call it 19 Nothing is unlocked denominator =0, uuuuh I guess I don't really have an answer, but a feedback tool for the wii is intriguing.

I'm a math guy. I have been thinking about the feedback our devices give us (albiet absent the fitter-than-thou attitude), What we seem to need is a personal fitness quotient based on Wii-Fit data. I'm toying with the following:
1. Enter your Chronological Age and Subtract Your Will Fit Age. The "delta" goes in the numerator.
2. The denominator probably needs to relate to the number of routines and options not yet unlocked. This would be a measure of not having used the Wii Fit enough yet. So count the grayed-out options.
3. Divide numerator by denominator.
Does this work? And what did you calculate?
