    I got one on Friday! I love it. Done quite a lot on it so far, spent Friday trying out everything, and yesterday I did 40 mins stepping a few other things (unlocked free step! Yay!) and today did 30 mins stepping whilst watching telly.

    I just wanted to ask, for those of you who just do wii fit/have been doing it for quite a while, have you found it making a positive difference to your weight loss?
    :character00115:
    Do you feel better for it? Actually fitter?

    I plan to do it as well as doing my running (well, running/walking) still, but I am a lazy bum and would rather stay indoors if I can! lol!

    I got mine last April & used it until the end of the summer & felt much more toned.

    Started using it again in December & last April I could never have done it, but the other day I did a run around the island, whilst I definately knew I'd done it I didn't think I was going to pass out or anything!!

    Now I can't be sure that it's because of the WII Fit or just because I've lost a fair amount of weight, but certainly I feel much fitter than I did a year ago. I also know my posture is much better & I think that is down to the yoga.

    Either way, I think it's definately worth doing as I know for definate it helps with posture & toning up.

    I'm just about to start the fitness coach, which I think is a little harder and the cheerleading/dancing one, so will alternate it a little for variety.

    Thanks Lisa, yeah helpful :)

    Nic - I love mine so far, and can see myself getting quite a lot of use out of it. I plan to do something on it every day, even if it's just a few muscle exercises rather than cardiovascular stuff...
    We will see how long it lasts! But I'm much more likely to stick to it than running every night....

    I've not noticed a difference in fitness (I've a LONG way to go!!!) BUT I've definitely had better weight losses in the weeks I've used it

    Wii Fit is great!!!
    I use it at least 30 mins every evening with Daughter encouraging me!
    Yes, I can see the difference and feel fantastic....the one thing I dont pay much attention too is the weight on it, as I weigh on a carpet and in different places in the lounge.

    Yes, avoid the Body Test!! It measures your centre of gravity and also weighs you - which of course can vary sooooo much depending on time of day etc. Stick to the SW once a week weigh for that side of things

    3 hours dancing more than makes up for it!

    My band rehearsal is cancelled tonight so I've got no excuse not to do exercise - I am going to have a run AND do some wii fit. I am determined to lose weight this week, after last week's disasterous, depressing week!

    you don't jump on the balance board at all, and don't worry it's not noisy
    I must admit though, I think the wii fit is great to get the kids a bit more active rather than sat in front of the telly and I think it's good fun but useless for real fitness and weight loss as it just doesn't work you hard enough so you get into a sweat!

    You only step on and off the board, so no falling in on the neighbours!

    I must say, I'm working out quite hard on it, but then I'm doing step on as fast a setting as I can and I am waving my arms round like a nutter too.

    It focuses more on muscles and balance really (yoga and stretching poses) but the CV side of it, whilst I agree with Rachelina a bit, it's not made for intensive fitness, I do think you get out what you put in and if you put more effort into it, it will yield results. It's not magic...!! (if only!!)
