I didn't want to start a new thread because I know this subject has come up before, but the search function thinks "Wii" is too short to search .... I liked what I had heard about Wii Fit on DF, so we have been thinking about it for a while. We finally got it on Tuesday after a bit of shopping ... it's hard to find either the Wii console or the Wii Fit accessory in stock in our area ... DH, daughter and I have become addicted to it. Yesterday (Saturday) we played most of the day. In fact, daughter and I were supposed to spend the day shopping for furniture for her (we owe her a birthday present), but after DH reminded us for about the tenth time that we should get out there and shop, daughter finally said, "forget about furniture -- I want Wii Fit for my birthday." DH and daughter are showing their competitive sides. They keep trying to knock each other off the scoreboard in the balance and aerobics games. I am usually a distant third to them ... except in the yoga and strength categories that they don't do as much. I didn't expect very much of a workout, especially because I thought I was in fairly good shape for my age. But my thighs are a little stiff this morning ... wow. Somebody put a lot of thought into measuring the effectiveness of various exercises. I am very impressed. It seems more fun than most other exercise programs, especially because of the competitive aspects. This may keep us doing it more regularly. The only downside is the possibility that "weaker" competitors may be intimidated. In areas where DH and daughter are stronger, I'm mature enough to try to focus only on my own progress. Unfortunately, our son is the classic couch potato. I think he has done it only once. I suppose it's hard enough for him to have consistently lower scores than his father, but it must kinda hurt when his younger sister, and even his mother, are so far ahead. We're trying to think of ways to encourage him to "just do it".
