Wii Fit is a video game developed by Nintendo for the Wii console. It is an exercise game consisting of activities utilizing the Wii Balance Board peripheral.

The Wii Fit package includes a Wii Balance Board and a Wii Fit game disk for the Wii console containing 48 fitness training-related games and activities. The Wii Balance Board is a wireless peripheral for the Wii console and communicates with the console in the same manner as the Wii Remote. The sensors on the board can measure players up to 150KG (330lbs) in mass. The balance board measures a user's mass and center of balance. The software can then calculate the user's body mass index when told of his or her height.

Wii Fit was released in Japan on December 1, 2007, and in other regions in April-May 2008. As of December 2008, Wii Fit is the Wii's third best-selling game, with 14 million copies sold. At a retail price of $89.99 USD (and equivalent in other regions), Wii Fit has generated over $1.26 billion in revenue for Nintendo.

Fitness Breakthrough That Creates a Whole New Genre of Gaming
At first glance, the Wii Fit looks like another video gaming gimic like the Nintendo PowerPad or the Zapper. Who would have thought that a video game with a white plastic step would have such an impact not only on the video game industry, but in the fitness world. Nintendo has accomplished something that has indeed revolutonized how we look at the world of video gaming by taking gamers off of their couches, and making them sweat.      When I first heard about the Nintendo …

YEAH for Wiifit .. Making Activity FUN
review by . January 31, 2010
I don't have problems motivating myself to exercise, but variety is essential to keep yourself engaged in the process and striving for continual improvement. This is an excellent way to do just that - the exercises are fun, the graphics are engaging (albeit rather low-rent looking and oftentimes too "cutsy" for my taste) and the routines are effective. I've been very happy to have added this to my work out routine.

I was skeptical that a video game could ever lead to exercise, but my wife wanted this game so I got it. Sure enough, I lost 20 pounds using it. It's definitely a fun and entertaining way for people like me who get bored in a gym. I particularly like how it has a series of games that you can beat, which makes it seem as if your exercise regimen has a larger goal - to get the highest score.     Most of the exercises are aerobic, with some limited strength training. However, it …

I was thrilled when I finally managed to locate a Wii Fit balance board.  I ripped open the box like a 6 year old at Christmas.  Now almost a year later, I continue to use my Wii Fit game about 4 times a week.  I love the aerobics and balance games but the strength and yoga games cannot be replaced by the "real thing".    One key element of the Wii Fit is the abilty to track activites outside of Wii in the "activity log".  Here I keep track of swimming, skiiing, …

My wife and I are in our *early* 30's and we have found that the Wii Fit is the game that we use the most on or Wii. I have delayed writing this review by about 2 months to make sure that we continued our use - and I am happy to report that we are still enjoying using it on regular basis.      One thing to note is that the Wii fit alone will not turn you into lean-mean-fitness-machine but it can be a helpful part of the process. Many of the games are marginal in calorie burning …
