I bought Wii Fit for the Nintendo yesterday and I love it! I did Wii Fit age test, which is based on results of a variety of balance tests and my first result was 65 yrs old! The funnny thing is that’s how I’m feeling, older than I actually am. The result of the balance test also tells you how good your posture is. Having bad posture means that you may develop spinal, pelvic or other problems. My result indicates that I have bad posture and tend to lean slightly to the left. I now understand why. I often sit with my legs crossed or stand with my weight shifted on my left leg only.
Wii Fit is the perfect fitness toy when you don’t feel like doing the regular exercises but need all the activities you can get. There are more than 40 activities which are divided into four main categories: strength training, yoga, aerobics, and balance games. One of my favorite is running. It feels like I’m out jogging at the park with other “Mii’s” (characters) running around. You get to follow an instructor and if you run too fast you may be led by a dog instead, or you may trip and fall. As you do more exercises, you’ll unlock more activities, either a new one or more advanced.
The neat thing is that it keeps track of my BMI, weight, and fitness age with graphs, and time spent on each of the main categories of exercises on a bar chart. I can preview it by weekly, monthly, or yearly. As you lose weight and getting slimmer, your “Mii” will also getting slimmer. Wii Fit will definately keep you fit while having fun.
