Ever though playing videogames without using much of your hands but hey moving your whole body- I mean playing a video game along with physical exercise. Yeah it’s quite possible and guess what it’s once again Nintendo that has brought this innovative feature with Nintendo Wii Fit. Wii Fit is a video game developed by Nintendo specially for the Nintendo Wii console. And what’s more Wii Fit and the Wii Balance Board will surely help you turning your living room into a fitness centre for the whole family indeed!

The Wii Balance Board resembles similar to your run-of-the-mill scales found in the bathrooms of many homes. It’s a simple, white rectangle that gauges the force being applied to it. It knows when you shift your weight on it because of this pressure sensitivity and does so with pinpoint accuracy. The software can then calculate the user’s body mass index when told of his or her height.

Wii Fit includes roughly more than 40 types of training activities designed to appeal and make active to all the members of a household. Training falls into four fitness categories:

  • Aerobic Exercise: 10-minute exercises that are designed to get the heart pumping.
  • Muscle Conditioning: Controlled motions using arms, legs and other body parts.
  • Yoga Poses: Classic poses that focus on balance and stretching as also Deep Breathing, Half-Moon, Warrior, Tree, Sun Salutation and many more infact.
  • Balance Games: Fun activities, such as ski jumping and heading footballs, that challenge the player’s overall body balance.

Also the Wii Fit Age is measured by factoring the user’s BMI reading, testing the user’s centre of gravity and conducting quick balance tests. Such is a power of innovation of this behemoth indeed!
