It's a toss up for me between bowling, tennis, and boxing. I hate golf and baseball I like being the pitcher but not the batter.

Okay, I tried the boxing for the first time tonight and I kicked it's butt. emoticon

I knocked out every one of my opponents in the first round. How? I have no clue, but I'm not gonna argue. It was the best workout my shoulders have gotten in a LLOOONNNGGG time.

I enjoy bowling, but tennis is definately my favorite. However, once I made pro I keep losing :)

I like bowling, still working on my score. Also, like the boxing for the workout, terrible at golf, need to try the tennis. I've been using the Wii Fit since we got it and really like that as well.

The only Wii Sport I've tried so far has been the Bowling and we really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to trying out the other games soon.

Just to play, bowling, probably followed by tennis (which feels more like ping pong to me, since you don't have to run the court).

I had a game that was all strikes for the first 6-7 frames...no joke...I was even in shock...but it's no longer on my record, since we switched Wii systems (thought it wasn't working right, turned out it was just our Internet connection wasn't sending an important "packet" of information and so our Wii wasn't getting registered right). Definitely much better on Wii than real life, but then, the ball's lighter too. emoticon

For working out, I like the boxing, but I'm not good at it.

Boxing is my favorite. It is a great workout. I wish I wouldn't favor my right side so much while trying to knock my opponent out. Then it would be a more even workout. I am trying to get myself to pro.
I like the boxing for Wii Fit too. It is a more even workout, but took time to get the timing right.
The gaming aspect is more fun in the sports version. Nothing can substitute for knocking someone out.

My favorite is tennis. Last night, though, I was concerned about working out just one arm, so I played a couple of games as a righty then lefty. I then really challenged myself and played a few two-player games with two remotes as a lefty and and righty. It took awhile but I got the hang of it and got a heck of a workout.

Bowling is fun to do with the kids, but for when I want to "get my sweat on" I definitely prefer tennis and will play it for 2-3 hours at a time.

I'm taking off this Friday from work for a pre-planned "mental health day" and basically plan on being in front of the tv playing tennis, boxing, bowling, and Wii Fit all day. If I'm feeling frisky I may head to my neighborhood pool for a couple hours a well. It's an "ALL EXERCISE!" vacation day!

I went out to our bowling center last night, nonsmoking, and I am very please with my scores. I took my kids cosmic bowling with their friends. I bowled 6 games and it has been awhile since I last bowled. I scored 150, 156, 200, 201, 209, 139, not too shabby and we had a wonderful time.

I will do what I can with what I have for Jesus sake Today.

I would have to say bowling is my favorite then tennis. I am actually pretty good at bowling in real life but tennis no way. I can get a good volley going in real life tennis but I rarely won any games even when I used to play alot some 30 years ago.

My favorite is the bowling, and I don't miss the smoking amell from being in the bowling centers at all, what a bonus.

Tennis is fun with my children, they are really good at it.

The boxing I haven't done yet and the golf I just don't do well.

I do enjoy it very much as well as my family, we are on it everyday. It is a real treat to see everyone encourage each other yet be competitive at the sme time.

I will do what I can with what I have for Jesus sake Today.

For fun with the family - bowling.
For a good workout and lots of sweating - boxing. (almost makes me want to get a punching bag!)

I haven't tried boxing yet. I gotta do that.

But otherwise, I like bowling for pleasure, but tennis gives me a better workout. And I'd pick baseball before golf.

I like tennis, too. I tend to trade off between various tennis-things (hit the round targets and hit the ball back in training and then the tennis games against the AI) and hitting the bags in boxing.

I like tennis. I get into it more than the other sports. I like to play some golf once my arm get tired though. What's your favorite?
