we have a Wii fit Plus and I think its great - except when it tells you off for missing days of training! As someone who buys things to help her get fit and then uses them for 3 weeks and gets bored the Wii Fit has lasted longer than my usual fitness kicks, if only becuase it cost a whole lot more than the gym balls from the supermarket or the ab cradle from the sports store - I've invested in it so I WILL use it! I also find its helpful for my partner who is very overweight and loathed to exercise. I just wish Fitday had an acitivity on the system for the Wii where you could add the number of calories the Wii told you you had burned.
I really enjoy the Wii Fit....I alternate daily doing the Wii Fit Plus and workout videos that I have. After I do the Wii Fit Plus training I can really feel it in my legs and arms! I feel that the workout videos that I have really get my heart rate up and get me moving.
When I record my calories burned from the Wii Fit I chose yoga as my activity and then alter the time so that the calories burned match.
I received the Wii console and Wii Fit Plus w/ balance board for Christmas. I LOVE IT! I started tracking my food intake on fitday.com at the beginning of October and joined my local gym in November. I was averaging 1.0 to 1.5 lb. weight loss per week, however, in December, I hit a plateau and hadn't lost any weight in three weeks. After Christmas, I added a daily 30 minute workout on the Wii Fit Plus and low and behold, I lost 2.4 lbs. that first week and then an additional 4 lbs. the following week! I'm sure it's my body's way of adjusting to my daily workouts (as opposed to 3-4 times a week before I got the Wii) and I certainly don't expect these type of results this week, but I was ecstatic when I saw the results. My favorite game is the free run. I can just start that game for 30 minutes, switch to my favorite TV show (the Wii remote takes over and guides you through the rest of the game) and before I know it, my 30 minutes are up and I'm sweating up a storm. I still go to the gym, but having my Wii at home assures me that I will get my workout in no matter what (NO EXCUSES!). I highly recommend it.
THis is exactly what I do and great results after this first week of 6 workouts in 7 days, only one day at the Gym! I do Free run for 1/2 hour 6 days per week
(sweating and breathing hard and I figure I can always go faster as I adjust)
and 3 days of strenght trainging just go through all the exercises now but trying to figure how to use those best...
I think it is a good workout if you do free run and maybe work up to 2x a day
free run....but after a few months, in the spring, maybe I'll see if I can take my jog outside....in the past I have ony speedwalked outside.
Wiifit is great because I don't have to go anywhere or worry at all about wha I am wearin so takes much less time out of my day!
I love my Wii Fit Plus!! I also got it for Christmas and now I'm addicted. (I can think of worse things to be addicted to, LOL). I love the fact that I can change up my routine every day. I get bored with working out very easily and the Wii definitely keeps me entertained. I haven't lost a whole lot of weight but I've lost inches and to me, that's what matters most. Because of the Wii Fit I am also more concious of my center of balance and have alleviated some knee problems I've had for years. I believe it is a great tool/investment for someone who is tired of being a couch potato and wants to get moving.
I also got a Wii and the wit fit plus for xmas. I have since used it for 30 minutes 5-6 times a week since - i have not gotten bored and even when I think I'll only do my daily test, I get motivated to do the workout since I have hooked it up. I customized a yoga routine to start and try to do 20 minutes of an aerobic activity. So far so good.
I just got a Wii fit plus, and have done the yoga, boxing, and advanced step. The running and strength training i haven't looked at simply because i don't think I can do them. I hate to exercise! Any suggestions to get motivated?
I have Wii Fit . I think it is fun, but I haven't seen any results. I have noticed though, that Wii fit have improved my posture. I mainly do the Balance Games because that is what I like to play. I don't play yoga or strength training often but I'm sure if you kept doing it some results .
