  • Dusted off the Wii this afternoon but had to charge the batteries. Tomorrow I'll start back into Wii Fitness or Sports - it's been forever since I've done either but am looking forward to it.

    Today I burned 632 calories doing 10 minutes of running and 30 minutes of calisthenics.

    24 min Gold's Gym dance workout - my 1st time using it. Didn't really like the pauses between all the routines. 217 Cal burned. Somehow also managed to get daughter to do DDR for 20 min too :)

    We made it home in time to do BL, but between a day in the sun and the workout, it looks like we will be in bed by 10.

    About 30 minutes of BL this morning, dance classes tonight.

    Everybody is really on the ball lately!
  • Can I join in? I love using my Wii for activity!

    I didn't Wii it yesterday but I did do an hour of Wii sports resort (bowling, cycling, and swordfighting) this morning after work. I'm hoping to wake up early enough this afternoon to fit in at least a short class of Zumba Core.

    I plan on getting back into it today. I have been really off track lately and it is not a good thing. I will try to post later.

    Checking into buying a used Wii. What do you all think? Do you use it to work out? Zumba? Dance? Let me know what you use yours for.

    Great idea! I use the Wii Fit and Zumba quite a bit. I even use the Sports and Resorts when I need to have a rest day for my legs! I also purchased a pretty cheap calorie burn kit with a resistance tube, weighted gloves and a riser to make the Fit board into an actual step for step aerobics. A few others have mentioned EA active, as well. Mine should arrive in a few days.

    The Wii has been great for getting me back into motion and for those lazy, cold, rainy days. And sometimes we play Wii instead of watching TV at night. We had a wonderful weekend of sun and I was worried that it might get lonely from two whole days of neglect ;)

    Welcome :) The wii is great. Especially on days you really dont feel like exercising, you can put the wii on and play the sports type games. U have fun and it gets you moving. I love the zumba, Ea active is a great muscle workout if you dont go to the gym.


    Well I have had another not so good day with diet. Went to cinema and the popcorn and choc top got the better of me!!

    Havent got round to exercise yet as spent all morning cleaning house then went to movies and visited mum. Going to watch master chef and then get moving with the wii, my aim will be 300 cals.

    Do you have the Wii Fit Plus? You can choose the basic step and your remote will keep time while you switch channels. The fast pace is still a bit slow, but with my riser, I get the blood circulating. I haven't actually done it while watching a show yet, but worth a try if you don't have time to workout and watch TV.

    Oops, forgot to add: I completed the advanced obstacle course on Wii Fit! That and the boxing really get my heart pumping. I sweat with the marching band, but I don't really feel like I am pushing myself that hard. Next time I will try adding in the weighted gloves.

    I use my wii for Wii fit plus, I haven't got any of the other fitness ones, I keep looking at EA trainer which I might get once I get bored with the wii fit games.
    I only got my balance board at Christmas but am loving it, I do 6 days then rest a day (Wednesday is my rest day)

    I am looking to buy the riser for the steps, are the cup ones any good ? they look a bit flimsy to me but they are a lot cheaper than the solid riser although that does look a lot more sturdy.
