The Nintendo Wii Fit The Next Fitness Revolution

Apr 27, 2008
Are you getting fat and flabby from gaming too much and coach potatoing? Do you find the only exercise you get reaching for the bowl of Cheetos? Are you fed-up and wish you could do something about it, while not giving up your gaming passion? Well now there's a solution to your unhealthy woes. Now you can get healthy without stopping your gaming. Get fit while still playing games. Enter the Nintendo Wii Fit. Already sweeping across Japan, this new addition to the Wii will release here in the states this May.

If you have been living under a rock, or are just not a gamer, then you may not be aware of the Nintendo Wii Fit. Well, in short it is a fitness revolution. A wonderful idea by Nintendo allowing you to get up and get active while playing games. The Wii Fit comes with a pressure-sensitive balance board that looks like a thin bathroom scale. Just put it on the floor and step right on. Once on the board you can experience all sorts of fun and challenging fitness-oriented activities, such as, aerobics, yoga and various stretching and balancing routines. Actually, the Wii Fit comes with over 40 activities and exercises for you to choose from. In addition, it will even check your Body Mass Index (BMI), give you a Wii Fit Age, and keep tabs on your daily exercise progress. It is the hope that the fun interactive aspect of the Wii Fit will engage and hook people in ways traditional exercise cannot.

If you tend to like getting outdoors to cycle and/or run then obviously this tool will not get the job done for you. But if you like to exercise in the privacy of your own home on your nice cushy living room carpet then it could be the answer to all your problems.

There are many people heralding this breakthrough in fitness. I am one of them. This is a bold step for Nintendo. And a wise one as well. No longer will the Wii be a thing for gamers only. The Wii Fit will capture the interest of all sorts of people, ever widening Nintendo's fan base. I can certainly envision a future of Nintendo exercise. Whole exercise and fitness clubs devoted to this appliance.

Now I don't know if the Nintendo Wii Fit is right for you or not. But I am convinced that regardless of your current exercise regime, or lack thereof, it would provide an excellent starting point or supplement for you. Do make sure that before you buy, you try it out first. Run over to your local distributor (opportunity to exercise) and see if you can give it a whirl. Only you can determine if the Nintendo Wii Fit is your next fitness revolution.

Be aware the Nintendo Wii Fit is so hugely popular that there are predicted shortages for the U.S. release. If you want to get one you will more than likely have to place your name on a waiting list. Also, in order for everyone to be able to get one of these wildly popular units many retailers are limiting the amount that you can purchase. For instance, Amazon is limiting your purchase to three per family.
