    Does anyone have a Nintendo Wii?

    I bought the Wii fit and the balance board but I find I work out and sweat (eww) more from doing the Just Dance game. And I enjoy it more... :confused:

    Has anyone else got one?

    Yes i do the full yoga session everday and 1hour of free step with hand weights and i do an average of about 3850steps per 30 mins. Its works up a sweat and well i lost 5,5 lbs this week and now my size 18 trousers are getting a bit loose so i think the exercise on it is working lol. Have also started adding in the mucsle routine but it is a killer i shizz ye not. Just be careful and dont over strain :D. Its also great fun to play

    I have wii fit and fit plus, love the free stepping so I can watch the telly. Just getting back into it after a few months. My daughters friend brought round just dance and just dance 2 and I really enjoyed them as well, think my arms will ache from that and my legs from the stepping!

    I love doing the yoga & muscle workouts on the wii fit & the games on it are fun but apart from the stepping I prefer using my crosstrainer for any cardio I'm doing.
