The Wii Fit

I have finally bought a Wii fit. It says I have a fit age of fifty nine. The worst of it- I agree with it!!
It is great fun, and we have now all had a go. I have told teenager that I will be working on it full time when he is away, so that when he gets back I will be really good on everything and will hold all the house records. He is not convinced.
I think it will be really good for toning up. I like the stepping exercises though my co-ordination is dire. I am really woeful at the heading and the tightrope. Must practise.
Oh yes.... and I must mention the hula hoop exercise. It is so difficult but it must be so good for the waist line. Watch this space for progress.

I see my Grandkids playing on these wii things, looks good fun. I remember years ago when the actual Hula Hoop was in vogue, it was a really good exercise tool, I spent many an evening after the children were in bed, Hooping to Chubby Checker's song 'Let's twist again' in my living room. It certainly toned me up and I was always trim.
I expect Chubby Checker was a bit before your time and memory, but I am sure Google remembers him!!!
Have fun Jo, and well done with the one bite of the Hot Cross Bun..

Love Granny

Just found your blog and am pleased to join your followers! I loved the Proverbs in April and the view from Adelaide Hill which I remember well.
Good luck with the wi-fi. (P.S. I am 59 - I just wish I had a fitess age of it. I guess I'd be about 118 and the machine would tell me to lie down and call an ambulance!)

The Wii Fit is one of the best things I have ever bought - I'm trying to persuade my mother to get one. You can do as much or as little as you like, and it keeps a record of everything.

We've had ours for about 6 weeks, and yesterday I finally became a professional at tightrope walking. That 'game' has improved my balance a billion-fold. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we're enjoying ours!

you will be doing much better in no time. A friend on mine got it for christmas and said it is very hard, that they are having a love hate relationship....the toning is amazing apparently. good luck.

It is also a nice 'ornament' in the conservatory, and a talking point when you have visitors. "ooh you have a Wii Fit?"

I don't use mine anymore because it keeps telling me off for not popping in more often - reminds me of my mother!
