My mother raised me to live a very active and healthy lifestyle and because of this I love to work out and keep fit. I am 26 with a 2 year old son and am now staying fit with use of the Nintendo Wii Fit Plus. I have always wanted a Wii Fit! Through my pregnancy with my son I wanted the Wii Fit to control my weight gain and then I wanted a Wii Fit after to lose the baby weight. Now finally I have my Wii Fit Plus and while I don’t need to lose weight I would definitely like to stay at my current weight especially during the upcoming winter months.

I have been using the Wii Fit Plus for one whole month now and have stayed within my personal weight goals that the Wii Fit has you set. Generally I use the Wii Fit in the morning when I wake up because it does a body test which measures your weight and BMI (body mass index). The body test can be done in depth with the Wii Fit which will also assess your balance and analyze your stats to come up with a Wii Fit Age. I think mine was age 27 which wasn’t too bad I suppose. I’m fairly obsessed with measuring my weight every morning and sometimes that is all that I use the Wii Fit for but you don’t have to do a body test if you don’t want to.

After the body test I start with Yoga everyday. I have always wanted to do yoga but I was too scared to take classes because I didn’t want others to judge me if I looked silly trying to do the poses. I tried to do yoga on my own by looking at pictures online but I never felt like I was doing it correctly. The Wii Fit Plus instructs you on how to do each pose and encourages you to work on your balance so that you get the most of each pose. I am now officially addicted to yoga through the Wii Fit and even do the poses on my own without the video game. If I did nothing else with the Wii Fit I would be completely happy and satisfied. The yoga poses stretch and tone your body and make you feel so good that your body starts to crave the poses!

There are other categories on the video game such as strength training, balance, and aerobics. The strength training is my other go to because it has me do moves such as squats which I really love because the balance board makes sure that you are doing them correctly. The balance section has entertaining games like tight rope walking which is fun but it doesn’t seem to burn many calories. The aerobics section is really fun if you like video games mixed with cardio. There are creative games like hula hooping and flying. I usually do the aerobics games when I am feeling bored or when I play with the kids. This video game is absolutely family friendly and there is definitely something for everyone.

So far the Wii Fit is doing exactly what I hoped it would do. It maintains my weight, helps me stay toned, relieves stress, and provides plenty of entertainment! If you already have the Wii I would definitely recommend trying the Wii Fit! If you don’t have a Wii there are packages available where you can purchase the Wii Fit Plus along with the Wii console. Have fun!
