Default Anyone have a Wii Fit?

What is your favorite exercise you do with it? How many exercises comes with it? I am so not techno savy...but I am looking for anything to keep me motivated? Is it worth the $$ ??

I do and I absolutely love it! Totally worth the money! I haven't tried the boxing (little afraid to ) But I've heard that it's a very good workout on the Wii Fit. Looking forward to trying it! I just love the hula hooping and penguin slide (seeing my character as a penguin makes my niece happy!)

I love my Wii Fit!! They are really hard to fine here though... the price ranges from $100 to $150, but you also need the Wii console as well which is about $269.99 (canadian pricing)

I really like the yoga and the games. Ski jumping and boxing are really fun! I'm still mastering penguin slide - though I agree - seeing myself as a penguin is a hoot!

It is more of a workout than I thought it would be, and overall - I'm loving the wii and the wii fit!

The Wii Fit Board is really cool - when you first sign on - you will get your Body Mass Index, Weight, and Your Actual Age rather than you biological age. The scale is amazingly accurate and with every sign on - you have the option of receiving fitness tips. The board comes with several games. When you accomplish or excel any of those - you receive upgrades (or something similiar - I have reached a couple of those but have yet to open them). The system will ask how much weight you want to lose and actually track it for you with a graph. This may sound intimidating but it isn't - it's all about you and you and the board are the only ones who will know - when you reach your goal - it's truly great to see! I hear the snow boarding game is good and there have been mixed reviews on the Jillian Michaels game for the board. If you don't already own the wii, go to toys r us.com or walmartl.com and look for the bundle - you should be able to get a good deal - the board alone runs about $90. Hope you get for you won't be disappointed!

Anyone know what the weight limit on the board is, lol. I know my scale has a weight limit of 440, and it was really hard to find a scale that strong.

I've read 300 pds and 330 pds. I got it this christmas and i LOVE it! It's just fun. And some of the activities don't seem like they are doing much at the time but I'm really feeling it today (ouch). I got the sports pack too (came with the Wii) and even those ... I had to turn down the apartment heat when we tried boxing.
Just make sure you are using your wrist strap!

Glad I saw this post...
I got my wii fit for Christmas and it says I weigh a lot less then the gym's scale does. We're talking a difference of 15ish pounds...

Anyone else get this?

I have the wii fit also and at first I loved it. But I've grown very bored with it and haven't touched it in at least 2 months. The boxing was my fav. and the hula hooping was fun too. They did make me sore at first. Over all it is worth it. I'm just one of those people that gets bored VERY fast and nothing holds my attention for long, lol.
