For Christmas my husband bought me a Wii, so I really wanted to get Wii fit. I am enjoying it but find it hard to really get a good work out on it. I just don't feel like I am working out that much when I don't do any cardio.
Does anyone know of any good Wii games that really make you sweat? A game with really good cardio that helps you burn fat? What about that Biggest Loser game?

I've been enjoying EA Sports Active (on my PS3, but the same game) and it does incorporate cardio along with strength exercises. My favorite one is "mountain biking". You hold a squat while you're biking downhill, jump over dirt ramps and do a high knee run in place to pedal up hill. I just got the Biggest Loser Challenge game too but haven't really done enough to comment on...but I'm doing it again tonight!

Okay, after having done the Biggest Loser Challenge workout again tonight, I'd rank both BL and EA Sports Active as a better overall workout with more cardio than Wii Fit. :)

EA Active is really good - LOL I have tried it a couple of times and can't finish the 30 minute session....

On Wii Fit Plus you can do 'free walking/jogging/boxing' (actually perhaps that's on the normal Fit too?) - I usually do that to feel like I'm getting a decent cardio workout
