I bought a clip on pocket from Toys R Us that I just clip on to whatever workout pants I'm wearing. It's similar to this: http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?p

I need the pockets because I'm doing push ups and planks and need both hands free. I guess it measures whether or not I'm in the right position if I put the remote in my pocket. That's why I think the belt will work for me. Maybe I'll get EA Active as well.

I use both my pockets and then by accident, I held it in my hand when I was doing Step Aerobics and it worked just fine.

I think I'm going to try the belt from Zumba. Lol@U Rae. If my husband found me putting masking tape on the remote, he'd go crazy. He's a fanatic about the Wii. It is his baby.

Ah yes, I've used the leg strap with WIO. I find it actually works better than my pocket, but you've got to have the right pants/shorts so it doesn't slide down your leg!

I wonder if you could use the leg strap from EA Sports Trainer or the waist belt from Zumba

For Walk It Out if I don't have a pocket I just put it down my pants. The nunchuck just rests on my leg. Works fine.

Well, back when we had a topic of where to make it read the best for the "free run" on Wii Fit, someone had the best of luck putting it in her sports bra....that could be an option for you, as well. lol.

I use the waistband as well. Even in the shorts I have that do have pockets I don't use them. I have trouble keeping the remote in my pocket. I guess they just aren't deep enough.

I use the waistband like you mention whenever there's not a pocket in my shorts or when the pocket is too shallow. I tuck it into the back of my waist and find that more comfortable than in the front.

One suggestion I've seen before was to take small, babysized socks, and safety-pin them to your shorts for those workouts. I've never used it myself (I have shorts with pockets that I use for those workouts,) but it was a suggestion that had good reviews.

Just hold it in your hand. Some wii games have belts that hold the controller, I don't like that either. i just hold it or put it down if it is not required.

Well....depending on your size, you have two options.

Onestopplus.com has shorts with pockets that go up to 6x (most go up to only 4x though..)

This kind onestoplus offers goes up to 6x (and only $14.99 before shipping)

www.onestopplus.com/clothing/7day-Kn
it
-Shorts-by-Only-Necessities.aspx?PfIR>d=210000&DeptId=11569&ProductTypeId=1


If the link doesn't work, they do have an option to search under active wear than shorts/capris. Or just do a search for 7 day knit shorts. They offer this type of shorts in S (waist size 12) up through size 6 xL (or waist size 42-44W.)

Another website to order a pair of shorts or a couple from is a website called Making it Big. They don't offer much selection in the way of active wear (and can be on the spendy side) but they offer everything from swimwear to business casual to shoes and everyday wear that start at size 2x all the way up to size 8XL.

Okay team, I have a rather odd question. I have a couple of games that have parts where I am supposed to put my Wii remote in my pocket. None of my workout shorts have pockets. emoticon I have looked for workout shorts that have pockets, and can't seem to find any. Can anyone give me an idea of where to look?

Thanks in advance for any help. Right now, I'm just tucking it into the waistband of my shorts, and it's not comfortable at all. emoticon
