HI, My name is Febe, and I just caught sight of this Wii Discussion.
I have the old Wii, and use it ALOT-- I belong to a gym, but some days can't get there.
Wii steps in.

I also love using Wii Fit Plus, I set up a 22 min. Stretching program that there is little stopping in.. it just goes from one stretch, yoga, to the next. in the end, I'm 22 min of movement for that day. From there I go to some balance games...
Sometimes I pop that dvd out and jump into Wii Sports Resort. When I"m done there, back to Wii Fit Plus, because it keeps a record of how many mins. I played.. and in the case of the stretching and yoga, balance games, also the calories.

For me, it' s a fun way to get that extra movement into my day. I get up about 5 -- so I have time before I like my morning tea at 7 to play and move. Then my day begins and by 9 I'm out-- I"m disabled but do volunteer and spend time with friends... the point is if I can begin each am with some time on Wii then I"m doing great.

I wish everyone had a Wii.! :) Febe

I am an on-again, off-again WII user, depending on how busy I am with the rest of life, and the weather. When I am on-again, I love the Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, Zumba, Dance, Dance marathon, etc.

One thing that I like about the Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus is the variety. There are games to help with flexibility (ie, yoga) and balance and muscles (boxing), and many of them also involve the brain, so it seems to be a good all-around workout. A couple of the games, especially the one where I have to run on ice and jump over falling logs, can really get me winded and sweaty. Sorry, don't remember what it's called. I've been going to the gym lately instead of hanging out at home.

Our family has a Wii which I never really got used to doing, but I just got it out again this week and started using it. Because it's not continuous like a DVD it seems like I waste a lot of time, however, I do find benefits in the testing....you get immediate feedback on what you're doing right./wrong and tips. For the moment it is keeping me move on a daily basis, so I'll keep doing it for now.

Just Do It! Concentrate on your positive choices not past mistakes.

I haven't used a Wii mainly because I'm afraid of spraining a joint without any real weights, tennis racket, etc.

Thanks for your input, Else. When I was doing P.T. for my broken leg, they had one there that other people were using and it looked like fun. I don't have any Wii anything (I'm so behind the times), probably because there are no youngsters around to beg for it...LOL. I will be investigating. Thanks again!

Hi Mary, I use the Wii Fitness program and just started using the Wii Fit Plus. The con I find is that it is not continues like a DVD would be but the pro of this is that you can repeat the same exercise without having to rewind it. It looks like the Wii Fit Pro has a 'routine' feature where you can set up your fitness program. I have not tried that as yet but did try to set it up. I do like the yoga and strength training it offers and it does go through a good demo which you can play over and over again. If you have the program try it. If you don't and want to buy go for the Wii Fit Plus as it does the same as the Wii Fit but more.

I've been nursing an injured knee, so step aerobics are out of the picture now. I have done my step tapes without the step. It's very confusing stepping without a step...LOL. I'm waiting for my doctor's appt. before I get on my bike, but I've been thinking about the Wii fitness. I can't walk...don't really like it and always hurt myself when I try to do it for fitness. I want to like it, but it always takes a toll.

So, do any of you use the Wii for your fitness program? I'd love to hear pros and cons. Thanks in advance.

Mary
