100-Day Exercise Challenge Day 11: Wii Fit is fun!
And a great workout!
Don't believe me? Just ask my arms, my legs, my core...all of that! If you are not putting up a sweat, you're not working it right! Running in place for 10 minutes, Kung Fu, boxing, hula hoop for 10 minutes (now that's a beast!) and various other games. Yes, games, but this is a workout for real.
And it can be real easy for the beginner or make it advanced for the die-hard fitness gurus. I was one of those when I first got the Wii Fit that felt it did not give me a great workout. Weeeellllll....fast forward nearly two years later and I think I was smokin sumthin sumthin. WiiFit is totally a workout! aybeM I had not unlocked all the goodies. Maybe I was looking at it as a game, not as a workout. Maybe it was me.
Okay, it was.
I workout like a beast, hardcore, P90X, Insanity, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs, Tae Bo, The Firm, WATP, you name it I have done it. And I am always willing to try something new. I think Wii Fit is the perfect way to workout when you REALLY want to have fun with exercise.
AND, if you are competitive like me (yeah, just a little) then you want to keep trying to beat your best record, well, that's how I keep going. I racked in 65 minutes and burned 258 calories (well, according to Wii, I don't trust their numbers). And I kept going because I wanted to hit my target calories for the day, and I did! I also wanted to beat my Kung Fu score (didn't) the obstacle course score (I did) and try a few new games. I wanted to unlock some stuff and didn't. Well, i;ll go at it again soon.
If you have been stalling about getting Wii Fit, STOP! WiiFit and WiiFit Plus are great additions to your workout.
