Default Wii Fitness game

I must ask this, has anyone tried the Wii-Fitness game? Does it actually helps with your working out?

I don't have it, my parents do. I never got to
explore all of the options with it that it has.

The part of it I did work with was a lot of Yoga
type moves, concentrating on keeping core
centered and balanced.

I did read an article that speculated that it
would not create a fitness revolution because
most would simply not use it (similar to all
routines and such).

But I've also seen a video where a mid-teen
guy managed a lot of weight loss doing
Dance Dance Revolution.

I'd say if you think you'd stick with it and treat
it like an investment in yourself, you could see
some results from it (with that and proper
nutrition, of course). The key is to simply do
something, and that was the idea behind the
Wii Fit....to get people to do something and
disguise it as a video game.

It depends on what motivates you. My FIL who has NEVER done any fitness routines started competing with my MIL on some of the games and it has been incredibly good for both of them. I think the idea that it can be done in the home and let's be honest the competition has worked for them. As with all fitness concepts motivation and keeping interest is key.

Its good for a light workout, if your training to maintain your weight or shed a few pounds, buts I dont believe it will work out if your trying to lose a lot of weight.

The key to weight loss is moving. Wii fit is an easy way to get yourself motivated to beat your last time or score, all while being in the comfort of your own home. I'm sure the more time and intensity you spend using it the more likely you will be to lose excess weight.

Default Doesn't hurt

Well, it doesn't hurt. It probably isn't the most effective work-out routine for weight loss but if you are starting from zero exercise then yes it can be a great way to get into it. Do you already have an exercise routine?
