The minute you step on the Wii balance board, you are committing yourself to a healthier lifestyle. You do yoga, strength training, aerobics and balance exercises. Don’t forget to check your weight every day.
I have to say that this game changed my life. Not only do I have an alternative to the exercise bike, I can squeeze in a few minutes of working out when I don’t have the time. Still, I don’t like that you have to check your weight every day. You’re probably wondering what the difference between checking your weight on here and on a scale is. Well, the scale not only weighs you, it weighs your clothes. The balance board allows you to remove your clothes from the equation. You can also do a couple of balance exercises to see how old you are physically.
The yoga and strength exercises help tone your body. You can change the gender of your trainer if you feel like it. For yoga exercises, you have options that don’t even require the balance board. For strength, you won’t need to use the balance board for some of the exercises, but you will need the Wii remote. You can also change the number of repetitions you want to do for each strength exercise. Oh, and do not do any exercises that require you to get on the floor if you have a very excited puppy unless there is someone else with you.
The aerobic and balance exercises both have you use your own Mii in a fictional setting. With aerobics, you are spinning a fictional hula-hoop, taking steps on the balance board, punching a fictional bag, and running at a steady pace. The balance exercises have you pretending to be a goalie, catching fish as a penguin, walking a tight rope high in the air, and other things. The aerobics exercises help you burn fat while the balance exercises-, well I’m sure you can figure out what those do.
This game has creative ways of working out and keeps track of your weight. I give this game 10 out of 10; it completely changed my life. Just don’t get it as a birthday present for your girlfriend or your wife; it’s completely insulting.
