  • Summary: The active-play phenomenon started by Wii Sports now spreads to your whole body thanks to the pressure-sensitive Wii Balance Board (name not final), which comes packed with Wii Fit. The board is used for an extensive array of fun and dynamic activities, including aerobics, yoga, muscle stretches and games. Many of these activities focus towards providing a "core" workout, a popular exercise method that emphasizes slower, controlled motions. Family members will have fun staying active and talking about and comparing their results and progress on a new channel on the Wii Menu. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. An excellent combination of honest training and highly entertaining partygames. Losing weight has never been this much fun. [May 2008]
  2. But none of these activities would be possible if it wasn’t because of the Wii Balance Board, which, in my opinion, is one of the best interactive peripherals ever invented.
  3. Wii Fit is a great supplement to your existing exercise routine, but I don’t think it will ever replace a gym membership and proper eating. However, it does provide at least one very unique experience: the improvement and awareness of your center of balance.
  4. Wii Fit has its highs and lows, but comprises a range of games that encourages us to return to the workout. It's not for every player, but for those who like to exercise.

    Wii Fit feels very much like a version 1.0 trial run that's going to be made obsolete by a better sequel in six months. For now, it's absolutely worth giving it a try if you have a Wii, $90, and some extra pounds to lose.
  6. If you're in the market for a new fun way to exercise that helps break the occasional monotony of working out at the gym, look no further than Wii Fit.
  7. Wii Fit is the Cliffs Notes version of exercise, and as anyone who’s ever tried a fad exercise program knows, there are no shortcuts to fitness. Nintendo obviously means well, but the balance board will soon enough end up in the same place where every other piece of home fitness equipment does: the garage sale.

    Kids that stay all day long playing video games should try having some fun and doing some exercise at the same time. My sixteen-year old son, who is overweight and never works out, is now having a great time with Wii Fit. And the activities that make him really move his body, like stepping and running , are his favorite ones. This may not be the â Expand

    "Wii Fit" mixes fun and exercise into one, for a great time to spend losing calories. Guaranteed worth your money, as there are several mini games that are fun and enjoyable, while you are losing weight along with it. Expand

    The Wii Fit works wonderfully, it has a simple easy to use system that works great, for the controls it uses the Balance Board which works wonderfully, it has some mini games that are really fun that actually helps your fitness, it also has some yoga and some great training outside of the main workouts, this is a game that's easy to grasp but difficult to master, all in all this is a great package that will have you coming back every day to try and master everything, a game that can be enjoyed by gamers of all ages.

    Wii Fit is an interesting game in the sense that it is trying to get people to work out and have fun at the same time. The Balance Board can let you do Yoga and push-ups, oh boy! Wii Fit works very well and seems useful at first but it does not measure weight correctly. Also, the game criticizes you if it thinks you are overweight by making your Mii look fat. Except for being rude, the game turns out to be pretty good, particularly the Balance games, with a more emphasis on fun. It might not be worth a large price, but its a decent game for fun, but if you're looking for serious excercise, its better to exercise without a tv screen . Expand

    Pretty impressive for a game to make exercising fun and it actually makes me sweat more than i do at a gym so if you want to lose weight and have a Wii pick this game up. Expand
