I love having my WiiFit Plus for the days I simply can't get out to do any other kind of exercise. Doing it regularly is key, but even sporadically for enough time in one session is good too. They have a mix of different kinds of exercises to work different goals. Usually I'll hit up a bunch of the strength training ones, mix in some yoga, do a bunch of balance games and one or two of the aerobics games.
When I use it regularly, I really notice how strong parts of my body (like my calves from the ski jump game) get as well as my overall balance due to that strength.
Next on my list is to get some other games that are more geared toward cardio because WiiFit does lack a little in that area. I tried Just Dance recently and that really gets your whole body moving.
In summation: do it if you can afford it.

I've had a Wii for a while now, and the WiiFit. I'm not one for staying motivated with something that actually feels like working out, so I haven't used it as much as I should. However, for Christmas I purchased "Just Dance 2" for myself, and it is great! I log it as dancing here in the the fitness tracker. The game is so much fun and addicting, I've used it every night since I bought it.

I have the wii fit plus (it has more games than just wii fit, and i think it's roughly the same price, maybe like $10 more now...not sure) and I LOVE it!! It's fantastic and I really do work up a sweat doing it.

I also like that I can use it for my weigh-ins. I don't own a scale, so it means I can still weigh in at home whenever I have the time.

I got Wii for christmas, and I was hooked all break. Gold's gym cardio workout is really fun, it's like guitar hero but with boxing. I also tried the biggest loser workouts, and they def. make you work. You can even track your calories on it, and they give you healthy recipes. I think it is totally worth it. I'm mad I had to leave mine at home for the rest of my family!

The are games available for the wii that do not require the balanace board. I have several. Including the My Fitness Trainer, Gold's gym cardio workout, Jillian Michaels 2009. On Jillian's there is the option to add the board, but it is not required. I love all of these! I end up drenched in sweat!!!

I really can't afford the Wii Fit right now but I bought my children the Wii and it comes with Wii Sport I like doing the bowling and the tennis. When the kids go to bed I do about 45min of it and you can count it as cardio on your fitness tracker. It's actually fun! Hopefully I will see results!

For the longest time i've wanted to splurge and purchase a Wii, now they have WiiFit, with games like biggest loser, yoga, etc. I'm not saying this can replace doing a regular workout but does anyone think it might help add to physical fitness? I'm wicked lazy and hate going to the gym.. just thinking maybe this can give me a little more motivation to get up and go. Any ideas?
