Wii Fit. Got one?

I am excited about the Wii Fit.

I want one.
I think.

Do you have one?
How do you like it?

I think I want one.

I'm waiting to see how many people it makes cry first...

Hap: Get on it, guinea pig! Thumper and I are waiting!

Thumper: How many people have to cry before you get one?

Thumper said...

I'm thinking if anyone cries, I'll forgo the Wii torture...

Hubby brought it home yesterday - wanna come try it out at my house?? I haven't had a chance yet to even read the book - but the box looked fun!

Roses said...

Richmond: I would love to try it at your house, but you'd all have to leave. And take all your mirrors with you.

It's excellent! Never do you feel over-worked but it is a challenge. There are 4 sets of exercises: Yoga, Cardio, Strength & Balance. The Balance is the toughest (for me) but all of them work well together.

It also tracks your stats & gives you the skinny (sorry) on your progress. The down side? You get to see how much blubber you really have as the Wii-Board takes your data & inputs it into a likewise-shaped Mii. Motivating...but not flattering (yet).

I think you'll like it overall & it's well worth the buy. You can work up a sweat in ways that don't involve struggling to open a pickle jar. :-)

Hap: Mmmm... pickles...

Hey, that's great news! I've been hearing pretty much the same from the Wii marketing staff, but it's good to hear it from someone not on the Wii payroll.

I have informed the husband that the Wii Fit is the only thing on my birthday wish list this year.
He's good with that. :)

SWMBO picked one up about 10 days ago. It's huge fun, and a great way to get real exercise at random moments throughout the day.

I'm waiting until the next generation: a transmitter that'll plug right into your colon and generate electrical signals that will stimulate and tone your musculature from the inside out, all while showing you pictures of cheeseburgers.
