New U Fitness First Yoga and Pilates
Use your Wii to practice yoga and pilates in the comfort of your own home.
From the makers of New U Fitness First Personal Trainer comes another fun and helpful workout game for the Wii gaming console: New U Fitness First Yoga and Pilates.
When you first begin the game, you will be able to choose your personal trainer, and then decide if you want to focus on toning or meditation. The toning classes can be quite challenging and will really force you to use your muscles during a 30-minute (on average) workout session. The calming classes are more relaxing and focus on meditation skills, which can be very useful after a stressful day.
This fitness game contains 117 yoga and pilates moves to help you strengthen your core and gain stronger and leaner muscles. To ensure proper form, you can use both the Wii Balance Board and Wii MotionPlus to track your movements. Every exercise has a video of a real-life yoga/pilates instructor doing the exercise, so this will reduce confusion and make it more apparent for you concerning how to do each move.
The game also has the ability to make a customized workout just for you. Whether your goal is to strengthen your core, sculpt longer, leaner muscles, or anything else, you can create a workout that will help you accomplish those goals. The game also keeps a record of your progress so you can see just how far you have come. If your goals change at any time, you can change your program without losing your records.
You can choose a difficulty level setting for each game. Unlike most games, these levels actually correspond quite nicely with real-life levels. For example, someone who has never taken a yoga class will do just fine with the beginners level, while a die-hard yoga-addict will get a challenging and rewarding workout from the advanced level. The game progresses with you, so you will not need to buy another game as you become more skilled at yoga and pilates.
