It is so sensitive that it can measure minute changes in your center of gravity.

So what is everyone saying about the Wii Fit?

Well here are some comments and feedback from members of shrinktheplanet-weightloss.com:

  • Jessica says: “I LOVE WII FIT! I got it about 6 months ago and i have been playing it practically the entire time. I can really really feel the burn and i feel like i am doing something great for my body. The games are fun and the exercises feel like they work! Also the Yoga is very close to my yoga class I take once a week. I also enjoy the running. One improvement could maybe be including MP3s or better music. But then again you cant store MP3s on the Wii. O well I don’t mind that much!”
  • Karen says: “The tracking feature alone is excellent. Keeping track of your weight is a wonderful motivational factor for making healthier lifestyle choices outside of the Wii Fit software.”

    I love it it keeps me on an exercise schedule. I lost 15 lbs in 30 days. I do all the yoga exercises, most of the strength training, rhythm boxing and alternate hula hooping & step.

    I have had the Wii fit for about six months and the Wii Fit Plus since it came out. The Wii Fit was lots of fun at first, but as far as any significant weight loss with it is hard to say. The hula hoop and the boxing are OK and I mainly do the free step. I have my board elevated on a “real” step board made by Reebok to increase the calorie burn. I usually set it at 8-10″ high and go for the 30 minute free step. I like the Wii Fit plus better than the original. Most of it is EXACTLY the same with 15 new games added. The best features are that you can custom design a workout and not have to go back to the main screen in between each exercise. It keeps track of the calories you are burning and has a quick weigh in feature that does not make you go through the whole balance/coordination test. If you have more than one person playing the games you can now quickly switch from player to player without having to go back to the main screen and starting over. The new games were fun, but also became boring very quickly. I mainly use my Wii Fit for the free step program now.

    My personal favorite is the “free run.” You jog in place and your Mii (if you take the time, you can make one to look just like you) runs around a sunny little Island, called Wuhu Island. That one does get me sweating. You can even change the channel and watch regular tv while you are doing it. You can do the same with the free step, step aerobics. I also want to get the base for the balance board that raises it up to regular step aerobic height for a better workout. I think I saw them on Amazon.com for $19.99, but they were out of stock the last time I went to buy one a few weeks ago. It is also easy to switch players so that multiple people can take turns and yet it all still “counts” for your own Mii. It also measures BMI and weight and you can set goals for yourself. So overall, I think it is a great and fun product and have no regrets for buying it. Right now, with this weather, I am on it about every other day when I can’t do something else. When it gets warm out in the Spring, I will be out walking more with my son and my dog, and most likely will only do this a few times a month, just for fun.

    It’s practically in the name. The Wii Fit advises that users engage in 30-45 minutes of exercise each day in order to achieve best results. There are more than 40 fitness and strengthening activities available, these include:
    Muscle Stretching
    Push Ups
    Step Aerobics
    Balance games like ski jumping and heading soccer balls
    The Wii Fit lets you record your non-Wii activities as well, to help paint a complete fitness picture for you. Things like walking, gardening, playing a sport or swimming all count, and should be added to your profile.

    I really love my nintendo wii fit, it is a nice change from the usual exercise workouts. I have lost 53 pounds since I started using the wii fit, it keeps me on track with my workouts because it is really exciting and different.

    It is great to be able to customize your workout routines to fit your weight loss and fitness goals.

    I won’t repeat what others have said about how this works, what it includes, or the fact that it is a quality piece of equipment. Nope, all I will say is – I’m a 54 year old female who HATES any type of “formal” exercise (that which is not walking or gardening, pretty much) and I LOVE MY Wii FIT! I just got it last week, waited a few days before getting it set up, and immediately set to learning how to balance my body (not my strong suit) – and finding it amazingly FUN in the process. Turning point was Friday when I CHOSE to get on the Wii instead of go make a sandwich for lunch! And 32 fast minutes went by, twirling, leaning, sweating and HAVING FUN before I finally made it to the kitchen. I am SO glad I bought this! I LOVE racking up “points” and unlocking even more games and the advanced levels. OK, so the graphics and voices are a little less than stellar but honestly I don’t care. I hope this thing lasts forever. Fun for the whole family!

    “I was impressed when we bought a Wii for our daughter last Christmas. Now I’m thrilled. Finally, a video “game” that seems tailor made for me! I’ve only had my copy of Wii Fit for a few days now, but already I can tell that if any piece of home equipment is ever going to help me get back in shape, this is it. Setting it up is hardly tougher than slipping in a DVD, and, unlike the Total Gym I once had, it makes you feel young just using it. The first thing you do is weigh yourself by standing on the included wireless “Balance Board.” After that, everything seems more like a game than a workout, but after 30 minutes with this thing I was sweating just as much as I do at the gym. There are four types of exercises: aerobics, balance, strength training, and yoga. Lasting from a minute to 10 minutes each, specific virtual activities include boxing, hula-hooping, jogging, push-ups, some very fun snowboarding action and this funky tilting game where you push balls into virtual holes. Back to that balance board. You’ll hate what it tells you about yourself, but love that it told you. Besides your weight, you learn your Wii Fit Age, a figure that combines your weight, body mass index and sense of balance. As you exercise, the program tracks your progress, or lack of it. My only two complaints: the voice that speaks to you is little-kid cute, and there are no pre-set workouts. If you’re like me, you buy a lot of video games for your kids. If you can find it, buy this one for yourself. I got mine at list price, but I’d say it’s worth about $150.”
