Wii Fit Games: Wii Fit Plus

Wii Fit Plus is the sequel to the ground breaking Wii Fit game. Wii Fit changed the way people viewed exercise. Suddenly folks from all walks of life were able to bring fitness activities into their homes without being bored out of their minds. However, for many people, Wii Fit was not the answer to their fitness needs. The Wii Fit game did not include much in the way of structured workouts. Since then, various fitness games for the Nintendo Wii have entered the market that do include such workouts. Wii Fit Plus is one of these games.

The structured workouts are designed for different fitness levels, so there will certainly be workouts that are suitable for you. If you are confident in your ability to make your own workout, then Wii Fit Plus allows you to program your own personal workout into the game. This is a particularly useful feature for people who have some experience in regular exercise and understand how to make a good workout program.

In addition to structured workouts, Wii Fit Plus is an improvement on its predecessor in a number of ways. It has 15 more games than Wii Fit. Some of these games may seem a bit odd, but they are just meant to be a bit of fun. You can flap your arms like the wings of a bird to go on a virtual flight. You can even get on a skateboard and do half-pipe tricks.

You can work on your headbutting skills for soccer. The rich variety of games and skills you can perform is what really sets Wii Fit Plus apart from the old Wii Fit.

One of the biggest selling points of Wii Fit was the fact that it could teach you Yoga. Wii Fit Plus has retained and improved on this feature. There are now more positions you can learn, including some very advanced ones.

There are many sellers currently offering Wii Fit Plus as part of a Wii bundle deal. Since the balance board is used by the game, all of these bundle deals offer the balance board as part of the Wii Fit accessories package. If you do not yet have a Wii, then you may be able to find a bundle that includes the console, game and balance board all in one.

As mentioned above, there are a number of different Wii games that help you improve your fitness. Wii Fit Plus is just one of these. Before you buy the game, it is important that you know the differences between the games. Otherwise, you may end up wishing you had purchased a different game, such as EA Sports Active or Gold Gym’s Cardio Workout. EA Sports Active is good if you want to have a nice combination of cardio and strength training in a highly structured program. Although structure is possible with Wii Fit Plus, it does not compare to the rigidity of the EA Sports Active workouts. The same can be said when comparing Gold Gym’s Cardio Workout to Wii Fit Plus. The main difference between Gold’s Gym and EA Sports Active is the fact that Gold’s gym focuses more on cardio workouts. Aside from that, the games offer many of the same features as the others.
