Wii Fit

Last week we got the Wii Fit. Terry has been looking for it ever since it came out a few months ago, but it has been sold out everywhere. He got lucky and found it online. So, it came in, and we did the first test to see what our "Wii Fit age" was. Terry got on first. It takes two things into consideration calculating your wii fit age: your weight and your center of balance. Well, Terry is a bit overweight; strike one. And he has really bad balance because of his past knee injury; strike two. Terry will be 32 in October. Any guesses what the wii aged him? 42! A little more than 10 years difference. Poor Terry, he has a lot of work to do to get down to 32.

Then I stepped on to get my wii fit age. Now, I must admit, I am not in shape. But I am doing good with my weight. I was right where I should be. The balance test went pretty good. I am 24 years old. My wii fit age? 20! I guess that I am doing pretty good then, although I definitely want to use the wii fit to get in better shape.

So far, we are both quite impressed with the wii fit. It tracks your progress every day, whether you have time to exercise or not. The exercises are really good. There are all different kinds, such as yoga and strength training. The exercises that I have tried so far are easy to do, but certainly work your body. I just hope that we will keep up with it and reach our goals!

FYI, the wii fit age changes every day, depending on how you do on the balance test. The second day getting on it Terry went up to age 48, while I went up to 26, so it does jump around quite a bit.
