In the fitness world it seems that every day there is something new on the market. The same goes in the world of technology. It seems lately these two worlds are colliding more and more. One of the latest crazes is Wii Fit, for the Nintendo Wii. This game system provides an interactive approach to your health. With possibilities such as the balance board, the yoga mat, and exercise mat. (I'm sure there will be more accessories to come.)
After entering your height and age, the Wii fit uses the balance board to weigh you and record your BMI, placing you in a health category so you know where you need to improve. It guides you through a series of exercises such as push ups, lunges, pilates movements and yoga poses. This is a great way to keep kids that love their Nintendo active! The only negative part about it is this focuses more on strength and muscle tone and doesn't work very much on cardiovascular health which is a very important aspect to the overall health picture. But anything that gets you stepping is a step in the right direction!
