I was glad I had the balance board this weekend. My DGD's were spending the day with me Saturday and wanted to play Walk It Out. The younger one had no pockets and the nunchuck holster was too big for her leg and too small for her waist. She played WIO using the balance board and the older one used the nunchuck holster. That way they could play multi-player and the little one wasn't left out.
BTW, they were just thrilled to brag to me that they were able to get the rainbow on their first trip around the island. Nothing like a little "Neener, neener, Grandma. We're better at this than you are." to make kids giggle.
I do consider the WiiFitPlus games a workout. Well, not ALL of them. Some of them are somewhat sedentary, but I don't include those in my program except as "cool down." Are they all intense, high aerobic exercise? No. But for me it doesn't have to be high-tilt all out to be worth my exercise time.
I don't think anybody has mentioned Gold's Gym Cardio Workout yet, either. That is one of my favorites. Fifteen minutes with that baby gets me going. Thirty minutes has me breathing hard and sweating like who'd'a thought it . If I go for 60 minutes or more, I have to take a break every 15 minutes or so to rehydrate and catch my breath. I find it great stress release, too. I can "virtually" punch people's lights out and some days that feels beyond wonderful.
I also like Just Dance - which does not require anything more than the controller and the nunchuck, which is nice because it is really fun with multiple players. (I like playing it with the DGD's.)
Won't I look good in my publicity photos when I am the leanest, meanest, most agile writing machine I can possibly be?
