Wii Fit is all the fitness "games". You don't need the carrying case if you aren't taking it anywhere. You don't have to get the yoga mat but it helps if you have hard wood floors. I do recommend that you get the silicone cover. It just keeps it cleaner and easier to wipe off.

Love my wii fit! good luck!

The silicone is for keeping it clean. How many people are going to be using it? If it's just you. I don't see it as a big deal to get right away. If I younger kids doing it I would consider getting one. My sister has one and the kids run around barefoot outside and then came in and played it. It got a bit dirty.
The Batter pack I feel is worth it since you can charge it when not in use
and it will always be ready. I'm a big believer in rechageable batteries. Now the matt I bought but I don't use it. I think it said something about you might want to use this for thick carpet. I don't have the book handy but it does say something in there about it. Mine works just fine without. I do use it for my other workouts. So it's not a waste and it is nice thick one. The carrying case I didn't buy since I won't be taking it anywhere. I just put in the box when I finished. The controler comes with the Wii game. The balence board is purchased separate you get the wii fit game with it. I hope this answered some of your questions.
