The Wii Sports revolution
By christophersaul on Nov 07, 2007
I'm really enjoying the Nintendo Wii I got for my birthday, regularly working up a sweat with some nice 20 to 30 minute boxing sessions.
This is exactly what I need - easy exercise that's also fun.
People who say 'why don't you just go to the gym/play tennis on a real court/do some press-ups are missing the point. I want exercise to take up as little time as possible and to be easy and fun to do. Tricking me into exercising by making it into a game and mixing in some electronics is the perfect way to do this.
I can't wait to see what Nintendo bring out in the future. Anything that has me enjoying myself leaping around the living room and getting some exercise in to boot is worth every penny.
My next step is to get some weights to put around my wrists to make my workout a wii bit more strenuous.
