The Wii Fit is a product designed to get you fit in the comfort of your home. You can choose from four different categories: Aerobic Exercise, Muscle Conditioning, Yoga Poses and Balance Games. The Wii Fit comes with the Balance Board, which is a new peripheral with pressure sensors. It is used for various activities.
Before you start exercising you create your own personal profile. This includes giving your height and age information. Your BMI will be checked by standing on the Wii Balance Board, which will give your exact weight. You will also be asked to perform a basic balance test to give you a Wii Fit Age.
Once you have been assigned a Wii Fit Age, you can start exercising. The Wii Fit will guide you through the fitness categories with the help of a virtual personal trainer. The aerobic/strength training will engage you in exercises that will strengthen and tone your muscles, from sideways leg lift, arm and leg lift, push-up and side plank, lunge and more. Additional challenges will push your exercise goals even further.
The Aerobic category increases your cardio vascular workout and exercises like super hula hoop, Advanced Step, Rhythm Boxing and more will get your heart pumping and your mood increasing. The Yoga category includes Yoga Poses like Cobra, Bridge, Palm Tree, Chair and more to improve your balance and flexibility.
The Balance Games are lots of fun and involve exercises on the balance board, from ski slalom, tightrope walk, soccer heading to lotus focus and more.
The Wii Fit allows you to keep track of your fitness progress, set exercise goals, see graphs of your BMI improvements, your Wii Fit Age and more. Up to 8 family members can have their own personal profiles in Wii Fit and can compete against each other.
The Wii Fit caters for all ages and activity levels. It is a fun and healthy way to get fit at home.
