I just purchased a Nintendo Wii. Any suggestions on games? I prefer to keep it fun and not too regimented except for the Biggest Loser Challenge which I am going to use for structure.

I have a Wii and I LOVE it! My favorite games are Wii Sports (which I believe came with your Wii), Wii Sports Resort, Rayman Raving Rabbits (seriously, funniest game ever. You play as "Rayman" whose friends get kidnapped by Raving Rabbits (demented silly bunnies from space) and you have to get them back and escape. It's such a funny game and you'll get a bit of a workout too! Mario Kart is great too.

Just Dance 2...it's AWESOME and both my 11 yr and I love it to pieces. Great way to sweat while you have some fun!:D

Zumba on Wii should be good (I have it on xbox, but the wii version got better reviews). It has different workouts to choose from: 20-, 45- and 60-minute workouts for beginner, intermediate and advanced. Zumba fans will especially like it, just try to keep moving and you will sweat ;) I like that it gives the whole workout at once, not just one song at a time. Wii Sports could give you some arm workouts (boxing). Just Dance 2 and Wii Sports Resort may be worth looking at since they get you moving and will probably be fun.

Gamestop usually has decent (honest) reviews on games; Amazon has lots of reviews, but not sure on their accuracy. If you have a Gamestop, try to buy used and you have 7 days to trade if you don't like the game (or try to rent before you buy if you have a movie store). Hope you find something you like :)

We just got the Wii for Christmas! My sister, nephew and I were up until 2 in the morning, playing the Wii Sports and Wii Resort! FYI, the kids, who the system was intended for went to bed at 9pm! I can't wait until we get the fitness pack and some of the fit games!

Here's a discussion some of our chicks had on Just Dance 2. Sounds good (positive game feedback).

Just Dance is great. I used it as a work out just this week. I also like the boxing on Wii Sports.

I have the Fit Plus and love it. I do a 20 minute routine and then play games. It has really helped my balance.

I've started a January Wii challenge thread to try to motivate myself to get back in the Wii habit.

I have EA Active, more workouts and Sports 2 and love them all. They are great workouts and a lot of fun. I'm not such a big fan of The Biggest Loser but I know some people do like that one too

I'm so glad so many of you like Just Dance 2!! I was searching the forums about that game and found this thread. I have been wanting the game and will be buying soon!

I have quite a few... Yoga experience, Gold's Gym Cardio workout, Wii Active plus more workouts, Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. I am going to look into some of those other games you have mentioned they sound like fun especially Just dance!

I love Gold's Gym Cardio workout. Great arm and upper back workout. When I'm doing it, I work up a sweat, and the next day I feel a bit soar from the it, like I was lifting weights. Of course the more I do it the easier it gets, but I love it just the same.
After reading some of the replies, I might have to go buy Just Dance 2!!
