    I have!! It was delivered last weekend!! :D I've wanted one since they came out, but finally bit the bullet and bought one. I haven't got the Wii fit yet (funds are a bit tight now this month) but I will get one in the future :)

    I bought Just Dance for the Wii - it's hilarious!! Made me realise that I'm about as coordinated as a stampeding elephant! :D :8855: I love dancing though, so I'm hoping it will help me shift some weight!

    yep i have a wii and wii fit, i try to get on it 2 or 3 times a week on "the biggest loser usa" i really want to get a dance game for it as this will be more fun then just exercise so i will have to look at the cost and see if my budget will cover it ... i spent £20 last week on new thomas take along trains for my daughter as a reward so this week should be my turn for a treat !! :)

    I have the Wii, Wii Fit, Sports Resort (I really burn up the cals playing table tennis as I really do get into it lol) & my son has just bought me Greatest Loser. Wii Fit & Sports Resort are fun, although you do burn lots of cals, but Greatest Loser is more serious - you really do feel the burn!

    Yep, had one since they come out and love it. Try to get on it at least twice a week, for half hour. I tend to do the free step, as you can watch telly at the same time, but I did do 40 minates on Just Dance the other day, lordy, my arms were killing when I finished! Ha ha! All good fun, and anything that keeps you moving and exercising is good in my book!

    My son keeps asking for one and I told him we will wait until the price comes down a bit. Just wondering what is the difference between the Wii Fit vs Wii Fit Plus? Better games on the Wii Fit Plus?

    I think they are just different games, and I think it tells you how many calories you've burnt off.

    There are a few more games on the wii fit plus, i think its just the new version!

    Is just dance something that can be done on the wii board?

    No, it's just a Wii game. You basically mirror the dancer on the screen, and get points for how spot on you are. It's knackering, but fun! :D

    Well it came a few days ago and so far we are all really enjoying it - the balance games are hilarious. On the wii fit i have been doing the step plus activity. Does anyone know if the routine changes after a while? Only been on it about 4 or 5 times and it's a bit boring already! Also, can you lengthen the time? 5 minute routines aren't enough really and i'm very unfit! The instruction manual doesn't have any answers.

    No the routines stay the same, but you'll be able to open the step free style, where you can lengthen the time, and watch telly at the same time!

    I find wii fit a bit too easy although its fun!

    Theres some good fitness games available though - I defo recommend EA active (£13.99 from amazon or play.com at the moment) and also my fitness coach get in shape (just £7.99 on amazon at the moment. Defo best to get online they seem to be pricey in the shops.
