So as much as I made fun of the Wii Fit before it came out, I got one this past Friday!! I have to admit, it was a little embarrassing when it told me what my BMI is... And I *swear* it said "Ouch!" when I stepped on it. However, after using it for 3 days, I lost 1 pound! YAY! Only mumblemumblethirtymumble left to go!
I was pretty surprised when I first tried it, it was actually kind of fun! I think that the secret is all of the activities are less than 5 minutes long, so you don't really get too out of breath or tired all at once.
Here's what's included on the disc that comes with your balance board:
Step aerobics, including a game in which the player must step on and off the Wii Balance Board in rhythm to the background music
Heading on-coming soccer balls and avoiding other objects by leaning forward and back
A ball-rolling mini-game
Ski jumping, whereby the player squats as low as possible, whilst maintaining his or her balance, and then quickly stands as fast as possible in order to gain a good jump
