Easy fitness with your Wii?!

I’m all over new ways to get a work out without going to the gym. Not to mention if it incorporates video game consoles. For reason it just makes it that much more enjoyable because I’m playing a game. Now Nintendo comes along now with the Wii in many family households and introduces Wii Fit, formerly known as Wii Health Pack.

Wii Fit

Wii Fit looks like a basic white step on the floor. It actually is the next generation of ‘core’ workouts from home. This little board includes a disk with all sorts of fun games, workouts, and even measure your BMI and center of gravity. The game will keep track of your daily exercises and as well as give you an out of Wii Fitness Age just like the popular Brain Age game.

As of what we know as of right now the game includes specific games such as: Hoola hooping, Ball rolling game with your feet, Step exercises, Hitting soccer balls with head motions, Ski Jumping simulations with bending knees and popping up for jump, Push up exercises, and finally Yoga stances.

This is a new age of gaming why not add games that add fitness to the equation? This is just what Nintendo was thinking about when they came up with the Wii Health Pack.
