WII
« on: December 29, 2009, 11:42:18 AM »
Against my better judgement got her indoors a Wii+Wii fit plus,coupla Q's-:

is it any good for toning up(lets face it she's overweight and got an arse as wide as the gulf between America and the rest of the world).

I also need to get some shape back(not as obese but overweight) by a few LBS.

what do my friends at DP who own this gimmick recommend doing that can help.
ta in advance

Norm.

There are two simple parts to losing weight, Eat Less, Move More.

The Wii, if used regularly will help with the moving more part of that.

Honestly Norm..  It wouldn't hurt using Wii Fit if she uses it regularly.   I am planning on getting it.   My wife and I both want to do it.

I recommend getting rid of Wii fit and get EA Sports Active.  Wii Fit is more of a western medicine type deal.  It's Yoga and stuff like that.  More about balance and such then actually helping you get in shape.  EA Sports Active gets you moving a lot more.

I just saw a commercial for that.  I wonder if it's any good?

I have EA Sports Active.  It's very good.  I actually have both Active and Wii Fit.  Active is 100 times better, IMO.  But keep in mind, I've been a football player (american) for 25 years and I prefer a tougher workout.  Maybe if you are looking for something a little easier on the body, you might prefer Wii Fit.

Anyway, here is the website if you want to check it out.  http://www.easportsactive.com/home.action

I have Wii Fit Plus and have used Active at a friends home a number of times.

Actually, Wii Fit will help you to lose weight. It has many different types of exercises, balance and flexibility challenges. They range from beginner (very easy) to very advanced which require a lot of flexibility and strength. This is especially true with yoga which is not all about flexibility but also requires a lot of strength to execute properly.

EA Active focuses mostly on bodybuilding and weight loss. This is more for people who do not want flexibility and desire a more vigorous workout all around.

Both are very good products but if you want a less intense workout, when you start, I'd say go for Wii Fit otherwise go for Active. If you have the money do both. LOL
