What is Wii Fit ?

January 17th, 2009

The WiiFit utilizes a pressure-sensitive Wii Balance Board (name not final) to determine a gamers center of gravity, balance, weight, and how they lean and shift their body. Depending on how you are leaning, the board can tell if you are slightly leaning to the right, when your right foot will apply additional pressure, and less pressure is being pushed on by your left leg. This allows the Nintendo WiiFit to be able to play an extensive array of fun and dynamic activities, including aerobics, yoga, muscle streches, dances, and many other games. All of these activities were made to be fun to play, while providing a “core” workout, an excercize method that emphasizes slower, controlled motions, to burn fat, and build muscle. People of all ages will have fun staying active and comparing results with the easy to view graphs that the game provides on a new channel on the Wii Menu.

The board is wireless, so you can place it anywhere in the room where you have the room. The board is incredibly thin, and does not take up a giant portion of storage. You can play the game in any outfit you have on, and simply move the board under the bed when you are done playing. You will be having so much fun playing the games that you will not even realize all of the calories you are burning. The game has an on-screen calibration to show you if you are doing the excersizes correctly, and to the fullest extend of staying fit. The game scores you on your BMI (Body mass index), rather than showing your weight to the entire room, which make it more confortable to the weight-shy gamer. This is the perfect way to lose weight, gain muscle, and ultimately, have a blast!
