Wii Sports for exercise


 
 So, I've been thinking about getting a Wii for the kids (and me!).  I found an interesting article on using the Wii for exercise at:

http://wiinintendo.net/2007/01/15/wii-sports-experiment-results/

It resulted in weight reduction, lower BMI, lower heart rate, and less body fat.  Basically, you just dance around for 30 minutes a day

Actually, after the first time my kids and I played Wii Sports for about an hour at a relatives house, our arms were aching the next day...

Is this the future of exercise?

Would be sad if it was. But on the other hand, have you ever tried to compete against an eleven year old girl in Dance Dance Revolution? :)

I suppose the point of using the Wii is that one is more likely to exercise if it's enjoyable. I know that's the case for me. Working out in a gym (even the free one at Sun) is boring and I just can't seem to stick with it.
