Wow thanks - I have been looking all over for a way to add "other" exercise/calories burned so that when I use Active or B/L I can still get it counted on FitPlus. I will look for it tonight.
I appreciate the hint. Jody emoticon

No, you don't get fitness credits; I'm bummed about it, too. But the Wii plus does have an area where you can add activities/exercise you've done in addition to the Wii so you could add the fitness minutes there if you want to. Go into your charts, then look at fitness minutes. There's an icon on the upper right you can hit to add outside activities.

We took our Wii over to my parents last weekend and introduced them to Wii Fit +, we all played multi-player for about an hour. No one got fitness credits, but it was a lot of fun.

When I was playing with my son, neither of us got fit credits for our games.

Besides, they go by so quickly, I don't think I worked up even a little bit of a sweat and certianly didn't et my heart rate up.

It's kind of fun to do, but I don't think I can count it as exercise.

Yes, the only person who gets fit credits is the one who is logged on, or signed in. If your hubby was playing and you were the 'switch' player, then none of your credits are counted.

Added after reading the above:

Oh, I'm sorry. I thought that I had been credited when my hubby and I played on our fit+. I didn't mean to mislead anyone.

hello!
I signed in to my wii and played my DH for about 30-45 min. multiplayer function and noticed that the little piggie counter did not give me cals/credit time for the multiplayer function. Is this normal?
Seems like a drag that I don't get fit credits for playing against my DH??!? Thanks!
