What It Is
When Nintendo launched the Wii their intent was to create a gaming system that would appeal to everyone from gamers to grandparents. Wii Fit is an extension of that mission and hopes to turn our living rooms into home fitness centers for the whole family. Wii Fit, which comes with the Wii Balance Board, is a series of games and exercises that utilize the board as a controller with the goal of getting players moving. Exercises include perfecting yoga poses, blocking soccer balls, swiveling your hips to power hoop twirls and pulling off the perfect down-hill sky jump. All of these exercises are controlled by the way players stand, balance and move on the board.
