HiJust new to this and wanted to check that using the Wii counts?My friend bought me the just Dance Wii game and it's fantastic, has me sweating buckets - just as good as a session in the gym I would think??not used the Wii fit board in a good while so going to dust that off tonight too and do a few games on that too until I've done my 30 minutes.x

The Wii is great - I find EA Sports Active gives the best workout and Wii Fit is the most fun. I rented Just Dance last week but I wasn't keen on the music. You really use your arms with it though.

Lol, i'm sure you do!!!!! I keep my curtains shut when i'm doing it, too many jiggly bits :lol: The wii fit plus has loads to choose from. There are 21 new activities over and above what the wii fit has, and you can customise your workouts too, if you want to!You can do an assault course, have a snowball fight, kung fu, skateboarding etc, great fun - i enjoy it anyway!! x

Anything you do for a prolonged period of time that gets your heart rate up and makes you sweat counts! Even doing the hoovering for half an hour would count if you ended up sweating buckets! :)

We've got a wii and a board thing, also wii fit (but not the new fit plus). I've never used it before and nervous to be honest. Do you have to stand on that board the whole time? how on earth does it work? (it's my husband's, he's never used the board/fit thing either-only plays car games). Thinking might be good way to get some exercise ?
