Wii Fit Plus

Nintendo's latest innovation for at-home fitness.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Wii Fit Plus is a continuation of the first Wii Fit game created by Nintendo. Featured in this 2009 edition are more exercises, added mini-games and a calorie counter.

This motion-controlled at-home fitness program comes with the unique Balance Board which keeps you centered as well as monitors your weight and movement helping you get the most out of your workout.

The Wii Fit Plus includes 16 different routines that target a specific muscle group or workout genre such as cardio for maximum calorie burn. It also features three new yoga and strength-training exercises in addition to a host of new mini games like skateboarding and a simulated Super Mario in which you trek along your own heart-thumping obstacle coarse.

For those who have the original Wii Fit, you can upgrade to the Plus edition without having to pay the total cost of this latest version. For those who have never used the Wii Fit before, the investment will include purchasing the Balance Board system.

DIET and NUTRITION

Although there is no diet or nutrition plan outlined in the Wii Fit Plus program, it does feature a calorie counter that allows you to track what you ate, view the calories you consumed and observe how your calorie intake compares to the calories you expended during your workout.

Studies show that keeping a food journal or food diary creates more mindfulness around selecting food choices and it also helps to keep portions in check, which can lead to a weight loss or maintaining lost weight.

The Wii Fit Plus calorie counter is simple to use and features a colorful and easy-to-read display panel that allows you to track your own progress as you work to meet your diet goals.

EXERCISE

The Wii Fit Plus program features a comprehensive selection of workouts to choose from. Whether you want a simulated adventure on an obstacle course or a core-strengthening yoga routine, you can select a variety of different exercises and mini games that can rev up your heart rate and burn your biceps.

The program includes 16 different routines, each about six minutes in length in addition to three new yoga and strength training mini games. Games like Super Mario, skateboarding, kung fu rhythm and an upgrade to the Wii Fit version of golf have been added in order to make your workout more entertaining, more fun and more challenging.

All of the exercises use the Balance Board, which relies on a motion-controlled system that allows you to interact with the displayed workout.

CONCLUSION

Wii Fit Plus is the upgrade to the Wii Fit program, one of the best and fastest selling at-home entertainment games.

Wii Fit Plus is an improvement from the original edition with its new features, added games and different exercises.

If you're a coach potato looking to get into shape, a video game aficionado or a gym rat looking for a novel way to workout at home, then the Wii Fit Plus system might be an investment that will pay off in hours of heart-pumping, muscle-strengthening entertainment.

I am a 58 year old female recovering from a fall that left me using a cane for 4 months. I am now 22 pounds lighter, and have dropped 5" from my waist, wear a size 4, down from a size 14 and I owe it all to Wii Fit plus. I am stronger and leaner than I have been in 35 years, but best of all I can now speed walk 120bpm. I feel stronger and more healthy with each time I use the system. This is not just a game, it is a lifestyle renovation, body rejuvenator and the personal coach makes a big difference. I can actually see the progress I have made since starting to use this program 105 days ago, as everything is recorded on a graph. I would recommend this Wii fit plus program to anyone wanting to live healthier and longer, strong and lean, who can't afford the clubs or wants privacy while working out. By combining my personal workout routine, plus speed walking 7000steps every other day and watching my diet, I have found the solution I needed.
