Getting fit, Wii Fit!

Tonight was the start of the new aquaspinning season. It showed that it was the first time since June. Pfew... muscles burning... It was tough to say the least! Still, I noticed I could keep up slightly better than before. The reason for that might be my new hobby!

Some time ago Ron discovered the Wii (esp. Wii Sports) and it was love at first sight! :-) It was inevitable: we had to get one too! We made a 'deal': Ron got his Wii Sports and I got Wii Fit with balance board. I had read a lot about it. The board had to be ordered; it is very popular. Last week we got a call: the no. 1 and 2 on the waiting list didn't answer, so we could come and get it. Yay! Wii Fit
We installed it that same day and I started immediately. There are 4 exercise area's: yoga, muscle, cardio and balance. You can set goals, keep track with graphs and lists, do a body test, etc. It has so much advantages: I can do it in the privacy of my home, do it at my own pace and most important: it's fun! I like exercising this way. Since we have it, I've used the board every day and I plan to keep on doing that. Even if I'm very tired, I try to do at least some exercises taking it easy. There are many to choose from. The guidance of the personal trainers (a male and a female one) is good and clear. I'm not that bad at the yoga and cardio, muscle is very hard and balance varies. I have my favourites, but I try to do all the exercises regularly. I'm really happy I have the Wii Fit! I'll keep you posted about my progress.

  5. I got the Wii Fit also and I really like it! I've been using it for a couple of weeks now, and, if you do it regularly, it can really help.
