Wii Fit Plus

It has rained so much lately, I've considered building an ark. With summer past (did we actually have a summer this year?), I dusted off the Wii Fit. At Best Buy last night to pick up a new DVR (more on that debacle in another post), I noticed the new Wii Fit Plus. I had read about the upgrade. Intrigued, I bough the new program.

It is awesome! Leveraging the good start of v1, Wii Fit Plus has fixed all the shortcomings of its earlier predecessor by adding new functionality, additional exercises and games, calorie tracking, and most importantly a multi-player option! Oh yeah, now the whole family can participate in the fitness aspect as children and pets can be weighed and measured for BMI. We immediately tested Gilbert and his weight was exact to the results from his 2 year well visit! Oh yeah, all the saved data from Wii Fit transfers over. Nice!

I posted last year how I'm a fan of Wii Fit. I am definitely a big fame of the Plus. I was a sweaty mess after doing some of the new fun games such as the obstacle course and snowball fight not to mention my favorite, the hula hoop! The yoga and strength exercises always surprise me with how difficult they can be if done correctly. Especially the push up test.

So, if you have Wii Fit, spend the $19.99 and get the new program. If you don't have Wii Fit, the new Plus gives it to you all at the start.

I need to dust of the Wii fit before I do any upgrades but it does sound like fun!

I've been on the fence about getting the Wii Fit, and you may have just convinced me! You should get a commission:)

I'm glad to hear your liked the Plus. We've been going back and forth about upgrading, but after reading this we'll definitely be purchasing.
