    would 30 mins of step (infront of the tv nothing mad!!) help with the losses?? :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    ive started at the gym on sunday - and 10 mins cardio and 20 worth of weight exercises is really taking it out of me (im on ss) so I would be careful - the guy told me at the gym 30 mins cardio like step burns 400-500 calories, so if ur ssing that is nearly all your calorie intake gone xx

    do exercise but just listen to your body - but the truth of the matter is nobody has actually told me if this will help with weight loss, im doing it to start toning up

    i think it would make a massive difference. go easy though. i started an hour-long step class and thought i was going to fall over i got so dizzy the first week... it had to be dropped for a while until i up my intake. but half an hour in front of the telly... i think it would work wonders... in fact... i may do it myself... ha.

    harder i would say. do you set the sound to come out of the remote? sometimes i do that and then stick a dvd on. so the remote ticks away and then tells me when i'm done.

    think you activate the remote speakers from the actual wii menu rather than in the game... can't remember now though, ha.

    This thread has inspired me too so thanks for that - I love the step class on the Wii and after reading this I'm going to get my step out and gradually ease myself back into the world of exercise.

    Hi I have a lateral thigh stepper - I do about 1000 steps at the lowest intensity and it takes me 20 mins ( non stop) and the calories counter says that i have burned about 180 calories. I have been fdoing this for about 6 weeks now I am sure that it is helping me tone up.
