With Wii Fit for the Wii video game console, Nintendo hopes to
get you off the couch and into games that are all about exercise and
fitness. But, this isn't like some boring aerobics class where you
can't wait to be done. You exercise by doing fun things like
Hula-Hooping or ski-jumping.



Wii Fit is a combination of a special balance board controller
and software. The core component is the balance board. This rectangular
wireless device sits on the floor and looks like an outsized bathroom
scale. When you stand on the Wii board, it can measure your weight, as
well as determine slight shifts in balance as you lean forward, back
and from side-to-side. Nintendo includes more than 40 minigames that
use the board's measurement capabilities in the software.



The Wii Fit games fall into four
categories: balance games, aerobics, strength training and yoga. At
first, some of the games aren't available, but as you spend time with Wii Fit,
the software keeps track of your exercising and rewards your efforts by
unlocking new games. In all of the games, your animated Mii character
on the TV screen mimics your movements.

Under balance games, you will find Soccer
Heading, where you stand on the balance board and head the soccer balls
being kicked at you. In another activity, you control a tilt platform
with balls on it, where the object is to roll the balls into holes. All
are intriguing, but kids will particularly like the ski slalom and the
penguin slide.



For aerobics, you can Hula-Hoop, run in place
(next to, but not on the board), rhythm-box and do step-aerobics (where
you step on and off the board in a Dance, Dance, Revolution
-type activity of matching your foot positions to those shown on the
screen). You can even unlock an open step mode where you continue to
walk on and off the board while watching TV on another channel. The
board will keep count of your steps.

There are about a dozen different muscle-toning
strength exercises, including lunges, push-ups and leg extensions. You
can also learn numerous yoga positions and are critiqued on how steady
you are while doing them.

Since the Wii board is also a scale, it can keep
track of your weight over time. By inputting your height as well, you
can determine your Body Mass Index (BMI), which is a standard
measurement of body fat used by the National Institutes of Health and
the World Health Organization. It will chart your progress, and help
you develop a plan to attain your ideal weight and BMI.

However, since BMI is an adult measurement that
has been adjusted to accommodate kids using the game, the BMI presented
for kids may not be accurate because they are growing so quickly. And
since the BMI is shown in terms of a classification of underweight,
normal, overweight or obese, you may want to bypass this aspect of the
game for kids.

Like Brain Age for the Nintendo DS, this
software comes up with its own crazy calibration called "Wii Fit Age,"
which it measures every time you use the program. To assign your "Wii
Fit Age," the game keeps in mind your real age and has you perform a
couple of balance tests. The concept is that as your core muscles get
stronger, your balance will get better and your "Wii Fit Age" will
decrease. For one of these balance tests, you must try to stand
perfectly still for a short period of time while the board calibrates
how much you move. In another, your body is represented on the screen
by a red dot, and you are challenged to move the dot by leaning so as
to bump into blue boxes that will disappear from the screen.

Wii Fit provides easy-to-understand
charts and rewards that motivate you to keep using the program. And it
can keep track of up to eight family members. But beyond the charts and
graphs, the games in the program are fun to play. Navigating a bubble
through a maze by moving your body is intriguing. Hula-Hooping without
hoops is hilarious to watch and exciting to play. And with little
characters called Miis joining you in everything you do, you never feel
alone.

The Wii Balance Board has one drawback. It
doesn't want you to jump on it. Unfortunately, in some of the
activities, jumping seems like the natural thing to do. When chomping
teeth are bearing down on you while balancing on a tight rope, you will
want to jump over them. Pay attention to the instructions when the game
tells you to crouch down and extend up with your knees to mimic
jumping. Likewise in the ski-jump activity, if you jump instead of
extending up from a crouched position, it will stop the activity to
tell you not to jump. This sensitivity to pounding may also explain
why, when you are running in this program, you don't do it on the
board. You are asked to run in place on the floor with a Wii remote in
your pocket to act as a pedometer.

Wii Fit delivers on its slogan "Fitness
Made Fun," and it will get both kids and adults exercising. It will
tone muscles, improve balance, burn calories, and yes, make you sweat.
And it does all this in a light-hearted manner. It's a good program to
explore if you are new to fitness or if you need fun games to motivate
you to move. However, if you are a serious, hard-core athlete, while
you will find these activities interesting to explore, don't give up
your gym membership yet. Wii Fit is an excellent introduction to what can be done using this new Wii Balance Board.

Step onto the Wii Balance Board and into a fun way to get fit.


* Control on-screen action with your movements on the balance board as
you work your way through a variety of challenges aimed at getting you
off the couch and into the action. Check your Body Mass Index (BMI), see
your Wii Fit Age and keep tabs on your daily progress towards a more fit
for you.

* Get fit with more than 40 activities and exercises, including strength
training, aerobics, yoga and balance games. Whether you're doing a yoga
pose or snowboarding down a slalom course, there's an activity for
everyone.

* Challenge your family and friends to get in shape! Create your own
personal profile and set goals, test your balance, track your progress
with daily workouts and unlock new exercises and activities.


Create a Profile:


  • Before you jump into doing exercises and activities, you'll start by
    creating your own profile. Choose a Mii, enter your height and age
    information, and do a few quick tests:

  • BMI Check: BMI, or Body Mass Index, is a measure of body fat based on
    height and weight that is the standard used by agencies such as the
    World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health. To
    check your BMI, you'll enter your height then stand on the Wii Balance
    Board and let it read your weight.

  • Wii Fit Age: After you've checked your BMI, you'll do a basic balance
    test and find out your current Wii Fit Age. This basic balance test
    measures how well you can control your left and right balance. Based
    on the results, you'll be assigned a Wii Fit Age.

Categories:


  • Wii Fit features four main categories to choose from: Strength
    Training, Aerobics, Yoga and Balance Games. As you spend time
    exercising, you'll earn Fit Credits that unlock additional exercises
    and activities within these categories. Wii Fit also tracks the
    activities you do the most and puts them into the Favorites category.

  • Strength Training: Put your strength to the test with muscle-toning
    exercises like Single Leg Extension, Sideways Leg Lift, Arm and Leg
    Lift, Single-Arm Stand, Torso Twists, Rowing Squat, Single Leg Twist,
    Lunge, Push-Up and Side Plank, Jackknife, Plank and Tricep Extension.
    Challenges include Push-Up Challenge, Plank Challenge and Jackknife
    Challenge.

  • Aerobics: Get your heart pumping with fun, interactive Aerobic
    exercises like Hula Hoop®, Basic Step, Basic Run, Super Hula Hoop,
    Advanced Step, 2-P Run, Rhythm Boxing, Free Step and Free Run.

  • Yoga: Work on your balance and flexibility with Yoga poses and
    activities like Deep Breathing, Half-Moon, Dance, Cobra, Bridge,
    Spinal Twist, Shoulder Stand, Warrior, Tree, Sun Salutation, Standing
    Knee, Palm Tree, Chair, Triangle and Downward-Facing Dog.

  • Balance Games: Get into the action with fun, balanced-based games like
    Soccer Heading, Ski Slalom, Ski Jump, Table Tilt, Tightrope Walk,
    Balance Bubble, Penguin Slide, Snowboard Slalom and Lotus Focus.
