Dont you mean down. I would hope that you do not want a wii fitness age of 80.

Yeah Don, you could just sit on the couch and get a better score but the point is getting off the couch and doing it. LOL. Come on. We do not want to be couch potatoe gamers.

Haha, Yeah, I just am annoyed with the accuracy that they have in the game, but I suppose it is more of a Points system then anything else.
But I was more amazed at the sitting down and barely moving my hand gives me just as good as an age, as standing up and getting a full body motion into it.

Don't worry about the age being older than you current age. Just have to work at it. I will be in my 40's one day and in the 20's the next. I guess it depends on what game you are good at it. Try doing training mode for most of these games and try to earn the medals.

My skills on wii sports are even worse than my real life ones. I was 68, yesterday and today i was 69. I really thought I was getting a bit better at it, too, ha.

Dont worry about it Heather, the first couple of times i did it i was in my 80's! I have gotten better but one day i can be 23 and the next in my 60's. And i have been playing for a couple months now, so dont worry about the age thingy, let it inspire you to do better!

I know what you mean Heather, I like Wii Sports too. I think I get a great workout with it. I tend to add more to just playing it. For instance, in boxing I tend to jog in place when I knock down my opponent to get the heart rate up and move around alot too. Bowling I though would not make me sweat but I found that if you go through the motions it really does make you break a sweat. Tennis I do full swings like I would in real life. I have to aggree with Don about the dreaded backhand swing. SOmetimes I get it wrong too. I am almost at 25 lbs lost since I have gotten it. That is more than that guy that is getting famous for doing the Wii-experiment. Oh well. I guess I should write a book too.

I am kind of a beginner to gaming in general. My boyfriend is into it. I like the Wii since I can do it better then the regular controller. I like to play Wii Sports a lot.. but I am old. I think I was once able to get into the 30s.. but it went back.. I think now I am still in my 60s. I haven't played in a few days.

Today was not my best bowling day. I lost my pro level status. I was getting so many 9 and split pins. The shots I usually hit I was missing and it was just a horribe day in bowling. I lost my stars on my ball. Oh Man.

Give me golf and hitting the target that is an area I am good at. Yesterday I reached my highest score of 610! 4-100's in a row. Just don't ask me to do that again. As for tennis I am getting there I just need more practice.

Oh Great job everybody!

Great job! I got down from 30 to 27. So that is good. The best I think I have done is 23. Mine tends to jump around alot. I played tennis yesterday for about 30 minutes and finally beat the champs. I think the bad thing that needs to change is anouncing it was a championship match. I sometimes do not know until you see the message board.

That is great Don, I do not believe that I have gotten Wii Elbow yet. I have been getting sore back and shoulders after playing a little too long. I guess it is all good since I am starting to see a little definition in my arms.

Did you ever get "Wii Elbow"? The muscles in side my arm get sore when I stop playing the wii for like a week or two, then kick back into it.

I got my lowest age yesturday, apparently, I am good at shots in golf. Age was 23, whereas my previous was 32.

Man, I did not do the Wii Fitness test on Sunday. In fact I do not think I played the Wii yesterday also. I slacked off one day. I do not think I feel energetic this morning since usually I really only need to take one cup of coffee to get started. I might need 2. I will double hard on the Wii Tonight.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I do great on some games, and keep doing what I've been doing, but then the Wii starts to decide I am not doing it as right as I should. I mean with baseball and bowling especially. Boxing, I start flailing and hoping that my hits land. I'm too tall for my TV so I have to play boxing either hunched over or on my knees.

I am going to try that tennis swing next time I get on the Wii. Sometimes these old wii games seem pretty wiitarded.

Fitness age yesterday was 30. I gained 7 years. Oh no. LOL. It is funny that the Wii says that when it gives your the results. I stuggle with putting on golf. For some reason I was doing great on the baseball test with 15 straight hits and then all of the sudden I start going down hill from there. Do not know what happened there.

We wont hold it against you Jose emoticon Today my age was 29 from 60! Oh and Don i figured out why you swing backward because i was doing it. If you hold the controller with the buttons facing the sensor bar you will swing backwards but if you hold the controller with the buttons face you you'll swing right. I was getting mad cause i was doing it without relizing it and i just happened to look down and seen what was going.

Sorry guys. I did not do a Wii fitness age today. I did do about an hour of playing the Wii and worked up a really good sweat. I was in the zone today making high scores on all the games.

This got me to play wii sports for the first time in a few months. My age was 25 which is pretty good for not playing in a while. Though I did get 2 tennis challenges and tennis is my best sport.
