SLNL: Wii Fit Plus

Wii Fit Plus and Balance Board

Running on the Wii Fit Plus
The Wii Fit Plus is one of the most popular home fitness items of the new year! It's a good way to go in your efforts to shed those holiday pounds. Fun and health for the whole family! Great for kids, and adults. The Nintendo Wii Fit Plus and Balance Board is the perfect addition to your wellness arsenal.

The Wii Fit Plus faces new competition with Microsoft's Xbox 360 release of the Kinect. The Kinect is counting on capitalizing off the insane popularity of the Nintendo Wii and utilizes the same motion-control concept technology. Unlike the Wii Fit Plus, the Kinect motion control gaming system focuses on more graphics than it's predecessor. The Wii Fit Plus does however have the fun and kid friendly graphics. There is a great recap and comparison of the two gaming systems at titled: Kinect Vs. Wii.

Wii Fit Plus Games

The Wii Fit has some amazingly great games. Among some of the hottest titles are The Biggest Loser Challenge, Just Dance 2, Michael Jackson The Experience, and Gold's Gym Dance Workout. Are we sensing a theme here? I think fans of the Wii Fit will be pleased as year progresses and more titles become available (hopefully with a larger variety of video game options). One final item of interest is the Nintendo Wii Fit Board Anti-Slip Grip Foot Pad Silicone Skins, that are available in an array of colors and help to customize your Balance Board for under $10.

  1. To give you my perspective, I've taken some dance classes in my life, though not Latin-style dances. And I'm a good 100 pounds overweight, so to say that I'm out of shape is an understatement. I use the Wii Fit every so often, and while I love it for the yoga stretches, I really wanted to incorporate more cardio than the Wii Fit offers. I saw this game advertised back in June and have been looking forward to it ever since. I bought it yesterday and have played it twice. And I REALLY like it a lot.
