You wouldn't think a discussion about
a game console would belong on a prostate cancer forum. Ruthie and I got a Nintendo Wii for Christmas with the Wii Fit excercise board and software. I have been working out every day with it and it is very enjoyable and will have me sweating quite well by the time I am done. It actually measures weight, BMI, posture, balance, and weight shifting. It provides full trainers and links to the internet for information and such. It also contains graphs that show you your progress, and advances you with each workout. It has Yoga, strength training, balance games, and areobics.
I need to lose some weight, no doubt, and to me working out has always been boring. This is quite enjoyable and it also has an added benefit ~ the kids love it too. I have never been a gamer, but this is something that if you are considering an exercize device, you should look hard at the Wii Fit. The kids and grandkids will love ya for it, too.
There I did it. I recommended a Wii game console for the fight against prostate cancer. And I meant it too...lol
Here is the link to the Wii Fit, check it out...Click Here. If you try it you will likely buy it.
