Weather bad or just hate exercise.....turn on your Wii! There are many great fitness games..and some you don't even realize are for working out....I love dancing games. And for an extra boost when playing Wii tennis I crank some music and dance while I'm playing!
Wii Exerbeat is a new game with a ton of dancing, boxing and family games. It's like Wii Fit Plus on steroids! I can knock of 350 calories in 25 minutes and actually have fun. Never thought I'd hear myself say that!
I have a hard time getting enough exercise between having no gym and lots of bad weather. I was babysitting a friend's 6 year old and she brought a wii game called Just Dance and oh my this can be some decent cardio! She left the game and I used it for an hour and worked up quiet a sweat. I even own a wii fit and never use it because it doesn't feel like it is very effective workout... this is far different, give it a try with your kids : )
