Ode to the Wii Fit.

So I got a Wii and a Wii Fit for the children area where I work. I own a Wii at home, but I play by 360 more than anything else (plus I love Netflix). I had heard a lot of hype about the Wii Fit, that it will “replace” going to a gym, and all kinds of things. I’ve been playing Wii Fit for about a week now, and while I’ve noticed a slight decrease in my BMI, over all I still get a better workout at the gym.

That being said, this is great for people who are not active. This is still a step in the right direction. It gets you up and moving, and you are working out (although most of it is low impact) which is always good. Today on Wii Fit I burned 60 calories (and then in Zumba I burned about double of that). I’m not patting myself on the back, but for a lot of people who could be a big feat. I also like it because kids want to play it. There are so many cool and fun games for kids, they don’t tire of it. Getting kids in the habit of working out regularly will do wonders for them later down the line.

So, Nintendo Wii, I salute you!
