While many of us desperately need or want to lose weight, there are many obstacles in our way. Gyms are expensive. Gym membership fees can cost around $1000 dollars per year. Even if you can afford to go to a gym, you will probably still need someone to show you what you need to do. But personal trainers are even more expensive. Depending on how frequently you go to the gym, you could be paying hundreds of dollars per week on personal training fees.
And then there are the home gym machines. Some of these are great, some of them are terrible. It can be very confusing when all of the manufacturers are claiming that their particular apparatus is the miracle cure you need to get a super flat belly. Of course, these claims are always exaggerated, and some of them are even outright lies.
The other hurdle that prevents people from losing weight is a lack of motivation. Gyms can be depressing and boring. Team sports are a great way to combine fun and exercise, but often they simply do not fit into your schedule.
However, hope may be at hand. A few years ago, Nintendo started a revolution when they released the Nintendo Wii. Not long after the Wii’s release, scores of fitness related games were available on the market. Suddenly, people were able to work out at home, for only a few hundred dollars or less, and have fun at the same time.
The first such game to be released was the Wii Fit game. Losing weight with the Wii Fit is as easy as following the instructions on the screen. The game has a wide variety of mini games and exercises that you can choose from. Or, if you do not feel like choosing, then you can choose from many of the workouts available within the game. The range of different activities is impressive. You can even learn yoga with this game if you feel so inclined.
Wii Fit also keeps track of various aspects of your progress, both in the short term and long term. For example, the game tracks the calories you burn while you work out, and it tracks your BMI over weeks or months.
Wii Fit is available with various Wii bundles. Most of these bundles will include the balance board, and if you want to get the most out of Wii Fit, buying the balance board is a must.
There is also now a sequel to Wii Fit called Wii Fit Plus. The sequel will be more expensive in stores, but it includes a greater variety of exercises. Wii Fit Plus also offers several features, such as the ability to create your own workouts, that are not available in Wii Fit.
Before you make an online purchase of a Wii Fit game, we recommend that you visit the review sections of stores that are selling the games. These review sections have comments from people that have already given the games a good test run. You will find that some people love the games, whereas other people cannot stand them. The best way to decide whether or not a game is right for you is to look at what people like and dislike about the game.
Another thing to keep in mind is that there are other Wii fitness games on the market. Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus may be the most popular, but have a look at what else is on offer before you make a decision. For instance, if you think you would like to do a lot of walking as part of your exercise routine, then you may like to check out Walk It Out. If you want to get some nutritional advice to complement your exercise program, then a game like Nutrition Matters may be a good buy for you.
