I love exercising no matter what the weather is. You use the step and the remote to control and track your exercise. The system is motivating and fun.

    The wii fit is a wonderful tool for getting into shape. There are also many other wii games such as the biggest loser, my fitness coach 1 and 2, EA sports active and walk it out, to add variety to your workout.

    So many people enjoy the active movements of the WII, but there are so many more that can not get up there and keep up with the technical stuff required to enjoy it. Back to the basics for them.

    I like the Wii Fit Plus and also other games for it such as Just Dance, Just Dance 3 and the Gold's Gym Cardio workout. There are a few others that I want to get but they will have to wait for now.

    I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A WII

    I definitely need to utilize my Wii more often, especially during the nasty weather months.

    We have Wii Fit and I do the 20 minute run while on the mini trampoline. My goal is to stay ahead of my kids and husband on the distance in the time (without cheating of course). We have just discovered in a drawer Exerbeat for the Wii and it has boxercise, karate, aerobics, latin dancing on it...and as you do it it keeps track, has a daily challenge to do and takes you around the world which unlocks more exercises. There is also a fun family area that you can 'swim' in to get the farthest, toss the pizza, punch down a wall etc... fun, fun, fun if you can find it. Doing Exerbeat makes sparkfitness tell me that I need to adjust my fitness for my calories I do it so much. lol

Added bonus... We noticed the more we do it (my husband and I) the more our three boys do it too so they can try to beat our scores. BONUS!!!

    I love Wii Fit Plus! It sure has been the ticket to exercising when the weather has been dangerously hot and humid this summer, and when winter approaches and I am working during daylight hours, it will be nice to know that I can get in a good workout without leaving my home!

    It sounds to me as though I need to get a Wii - Wii and Zumba seem to be the great combination to aim for !

    This is a good reminder to try the Wii, we bought it for the Grandkids, butshould be using it for us too. We bought Wii Fit, but don't use it..
CMBELISLE 8/23/2012 9:25:00 AM

    I've been using it as an alternative to help mix things up a bit. It has been a wonderful addition to my "home gym" and keeps me going.
NANCYKALED 8/23/2012 9:10:00 AM

    I'll have to bring mine out! I've been using Coach Nicoles's bootcamp dvd. Love it! emoticon

    I also love my wii fit plus. I recently got the zumba for wii as well. What a work out!
RROWELL 1/1/2012 10:48:00 PM

    I do 1 hour a day on my Wii Fit Plus but have just started. What are other good Wii titles to help with people just starting?
JELLYBEANSOUTH 4/7/2011 8:16:00 AM

    Seeing my Mii get thinner was one of the things that motivated me on Wii fit as well! Also, Just Dance will work you out. You will be so busy dancing, that you won't even realize you are sweating!
MARIAHTHEBEE 1/21/2011 4:02:00 PM

    wow, its great to hear that everyone likes the wii (fit) so much! i was a little skeptical at first, sense my generation was more into the good old handheld controllers and games like zelda and mario bros. but i have decided to buy one when my glorious tax returns come back! thanx for the reviews!
LAFFWITHLINDA 1/19/2011 11:57:00 PM

    I love my Wii. It is -29 degrees here in Arctic Village so going outside for a walk is not a good idea.
DAWNFIRE72 7/3/2010 7:08:00 PM

    I love my Wii Fit as well. I also have other exercise titles for the Wii that help to mix it up.
GROOVY1977 5/14/2010 4:10:00 PM

    I love the Wii! It is a great way to involve the kids too!
EAGLESMAIDEN3 4/8/2010 5:26:00 AM
