Wii Fit
Jon bought Wii Fit as a birthday present. I love it. Why? Because there are 4 types of exercise you can choose from:

  1. Yoga
  2. Strength Training
  3. Aerobics
  4. Balance Games
Let's Get Started!

Step 1
Turn on the balance board, wait for signal to step on it that Wii can measure your BMI and weight. Needless to say, I scored high on BMI which is bad and I am overweight. What's new?

Step 2
Select your personal trainer female or male. Both are not good looking and do not encourage me to do the work out. It does not matter to me which personal trainer I choose.

Step 3
Select your workout. Simply follow the instructions to begin work out and Wii will measure your performance with point system. You will enjoy your work out if you follow instructions and believe that you can DO IT. I love yoga and strength training. You can really feel the difference. I have a bad sense of balance and failed miserably in aerobics and balance games.

What the difference between normal exercise DVD and Wii Fit?

Wii Fit is more interactive and intuitive. It knows if you are tired or loses balance. Wii Fit has 40 exercises in 4 categories you can choose from. I doubt you have 40 exercises in one DVD.

Well, this is a personal choice. If you prefer the normal exercise DVD which fits your lifestyle, go for it. Meantime, I am considering giving up my Pro Club membership and work out with with Fit Fit (my nickname for Wii Fit).
