Wii Fit

One of these showed up at our doorstep yesterday. The Mrs. and the kids hooked it all up and we were ready to play after the T-ball game last night. Aerobics, strength training, balance training and yoga are all included with your own virtual trainer. Was it fun? Oh Yeah! Was I a little stiff and sore this morning, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't. I tried some of the strength training, yoga and a couple balance games and apparently worked some muscle groups that cycling does not. Is it the silver bullet to weight loss and 6 pack abs, probably not but it is a whole lot better than sitting on the couch. Oh, I forgot to mention my Wii Fit age is 55, I guess I need a bit more training.

Very cool. My roomies work (Avera) just got one for the rehab unit at the hospital. They had an inservice for it yesterday and she thought it was pretty cool!

That does look fun. I've gotta wait until the wii comes down in price. 250 isn't horrible for an excellent gaming system. But we don't play the games we do have often enough and I hope to get a mountain bike one of these next years.

Eventually there will be a used one at Last Stop CD shop.

It is funny how a person ends up sore the next day. I played my sister-in-laws wii over christmas. Ouch.
