Secrets of Success

Wii Fit Works!!!



I bought myself a Wii fit, and the EA sport active game to go with it. I love it. I can burn over 200 calories while my baby sleeps, without even leaving my house. And it's fun!

  • My entire family has a lot of fun with the Wii "active" games. I'm completely addicted to Just Dance 3. The kids are so over mom...they can't beat me!! LOVE IT, LOVE IT! Finally, something I can win at. Thanks for the info regarding the other games...has anyone tried Zumba?

  • My mom bought the family a Wii for Christmas two years ago, with the intention of getting the Fit and exercising. Bless her Heart, she has never used any of the games, but I have EA Sports Trainer 2 and both Zumbas. The Sports Trainer kicks my Okole, and you know you have worked out. I use my HRM to calculate my calorie burn, rather than the average the machine calculates. Since I am rhythmically impaired, doing Zumba at home with the game is better than just trying to follow a DVD, because you earn points for doing the moves correctly, and I don't have to worry about harming innocent by-standers! emoticon - by HWNHMMBRD

  • I love EA Active! - by SACHABEE
  • I so want to purchase this. I'm hoping. For the next sail. - by SUCCESS68
  • When I first got my Wii-fit, my grandson, who was 12 at the time, set it up for himself all unbeknownst to me, and got really really upset because it told him in no uncertain terms that he was obese (something his family members knew but didn't want to talk about too bluntly or hurtfully; we didn't want to send his already fragile self-esteem plummeting.) Well, I wouldn't recommend that method much but it at least opened up some conversation about health and exercise and taking care of himself.Reading this made me think more about needing some new exercises for mine. I'd like to try Zumba. If it's available for the Wii-fit, has anybody tried it? May have to try EA active as well. - by DEELYNNE1

    I have it, but I haven't used it since the first time I used it...years ago. I think I broke it through. I remember trying to use it again and it wouldn't work. I'll have to try it again because I had a blast! - by JESSZZ123

  • I love the EA workouts as well and I wish they'd come out with an update. - by QSULLIVAN
  • Wii does work! I have RA and it's something I can do that doesn't hurt. The Just Dance games and Zumba are a lot of fun also. Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 & the original Biggest Loser are great too. Have fun! - by TARAR0312
