Default Using the wii vs. wii fit

I love my wii. To be honest, I enjoy the other games more than the wii fit, but I really like my wii fit too. I find that the wii fit activities aren't enough of a workout for me, but they're still enjoyable. The game I use for exercise a lot is "Just Dance". It's a ton of fun, and you get a good workout. I look like an idiot while I'm playing this game, but I think everyone does.

I do highly recommend the wii for working out....

depends on what you need.
wii for one person is 200 and fitplus and balance board is 100
now I got mine with the activity bundle for 2 includs sports pack and the balance board with wii fitpluss from sams club saved like 50 bucks or so. I also got the recharchable batterie pack for the remotes, and then later the sports resort with wii plus, and dance revolution and pad, now the pad is on the small side, like for kids or some asian dude. I don't have big feat just average 8 1/2 - 9 depending on shoe, I danced for years but not used to my foot motion being limited to such a tiny space. anyways look up wii on the net but thing sams club is your better deal with walmart a close second if you don't have a sams card

How does the yoga work? I like to be spotted so that I know what I am doing is correct. And for the running, I assume that is in place???? So I need to spend $300 to get started with WiiFitPlus. Correct? Thank you!

We just bought the WII Sports and WII Fit. Too early to tell about results, but it is F-U-N! More importantly, it does not at all feel like you're exercising...until the next morning (groan).

Downside: It is definitely pricey. The core unit is $200 and the software $100. We had never done video games before and it was hard for us to get an understanding of exactly what we need to make the system work. A young man at Target gave us a 3 minute orientation, and we were good to go.

We already use a weight machine and treadmill, but this WII covers Yoga, Arobics, Strength Training, Balance Games and Training Plus (games using physical acuity). WII sports contains boxing (much more fun than you would think), bowling, golf, tennis and baseball.

It's also great for family gatherings our 5 and 11 year old granddaughters loved it; the 4 year old didn't want any part of it. The adults loved it.

Hope this helps. I'm not able to log on often, but I would be glad to answer any questions if I can. Since I am a newbie with WII Fit I'm not sure how much help I could be, but I'll try.

Dang I wish I would have seen this thread before I posted my own. It is called Kick butt Wii routine thread.

I love this thing and have lost almost 17 pounds and dropped two jean sizes.

As for the cost. I looked at it this way. I spent 300 on a year Gym membership that I could get to maybe three days a week and had to work out with everyone else. Now I can work out daily and by myself. Changing it up.

The Wii will pay for itself. Plus like someone else mentioned when we have kids over it gets used all the more.

I hope they come out with a Yoga routine game. That would be awesome.

How much floor space do you need for a wii fitness program?

I have space to jog in place in front of the TV, and do a bit of movement, but if involve having to move around much more than that, I don't have any open spaces like that in my house. Well, in my bedroom, I have an area on the floor just big enough to do some lying down exercises, but putting a wii or TV in there isn't an option.

The board you stand on is about 12 inches by 24 inches. 90% of the exercises are done on that.

Some of the Yoga takes about a 5 foot by two foot space. If you can lay down flat you have enough room.

Hope that helps
