Not so much as individual games on Wii Fit and Wii Sports--but whole games (that you would go to Wal-Mart or somewhere and buy)...possibilities include things like "Mario and Sonic at the Olympics" and "DDR:Hottest Party" 1 and 2.

Wii Fit and Wii Sports can be included in the list, but what I'm looking for is just the names of different games that work you out--even things like Rayman's Raving Rabbits or Samba De Amigo (just specify if it works just your arms, please).

And if you wish to include info on them, feel free to start a thread in the games review section of the team (the last forum section). I am hoping to keep this thread as short as possible and have just the basic info here.


Thanks for all your help!! emoticon

Going to repeat - though you asked not to - wanted to get this note in. In this week's Woman's World they report: "You burn just as many calories per minute Hula Hooping as you do walking on a treadmill or huffing and puffing on an elliptical machine - also works several tough-to tackle torso muscles."

From Gregory Florez of the American Council on Exercise states: "Just five to ten minutes of Hula-Hooping tones your entire core, including hips, thighs, abs, and lower back, as well as builds strength and endurance."

This discussion was about an ordinary old-time Hula-Hoop. I would have to say that on the Wii, it is a more vigorous workout.

I'd have to say Wii Fit Hula Advanced. Trying to break others records will really make you sweat!

I swear I'm at ONE Minute at a time!
2013 IS the year I get under 200 lbs!

Okay, all...I'm going to be working on an FAQ. It's still in the planning stages, but I'm working up something that will answer newcomer's questions (You know, the thread's that keep popping up with similar questions).

Anyway...I want to get all that info in one handy location for us all. And this is the start...one of the common questions is:


~~~~~What games for Wii will give me a workout or at least get me moving?~~~~~


IN YOUR REPLY--post:

~~the name of the game (only one per post, full title, please NO repeats)
~~and one of the following (which ever applies)

"it gets you moving"
"it's a workout"
"it really makes you sweat"
