I've always wanted to check out the Wii Fit and since I was given a 10 Minute Solution Wii game to try, I asked Kate or Katy if I could keep her Wii for a spell.
This situation comes with a lot of parts and I wondered whether or not I would be able to get the whole thing going but it really wasn't difficult at all.
Wii told me that I was obese. Thank you, Wii. My fit age is 27. So, ha, right back at ya.
I was all over the place on my first Wii outing: I did the tree pose. I bowled and boxed. I stepped and I kept an imaginary hula hoop going around my waist. Although I did get hit in the head by at least two flying hula hoops, I really enjoyed keeping the hoop twirling.
I also liked boxing but it was disconcerting when I got hit. Yeah, I liked to deliver the punches but I didn't like to be on the receiving end of any.
The thing about 24 hour fitness clubs (especially ones with gymnasiums and hot tubs) and the Wii is that both entities have the capacity to capture my attention for a good portion of the day which is a good thing, kind of, unless you get obsessed with stuff like me.
Here's the Wii and its parts all ready to go back and since Kate or Katy has not emailed me, I think I got everything back in the box. Thanks, girl, for letting me keep your Wii for awhile. It was fun while it lasted...
In general, I really dig this segment over at The Wall Street Journal called What's Your Workout? where, usually, a CEO is interviewed about his or her regimen.
Heath Bell was featured and the pitcher revealed that he lost 25 pounds doing Wii workouts. The pitcher also credits Wii for helping him with balance.
Do you have a Wii? If so, what's your favorite Wii game or activity?
