Advanced Exercising Challenges on the Wii Fit
You’ve got the high score on heading soccer balls. You’re a professional-level ski jumper, and you can keep ten hula hoops going with barely breaking a sweat. You’ve unlocked every exercise on the Wii Fit, and your couch potato existence is only a fond memory. So what’s next? Here are a few options for you to take your fitness program to a new level. As I said before – Nintendo Wii is more than just a game console.
Wii Fit Plus
The good folks at Nintendo have recognized that the way to keep customers is to keep pace with their needs and desires, so they’ve recently released an advanced version of the Wii Fit, called the Wii Fit Plus. This new system offers several upgrades from the original Wii, including calorie tracking, custom exercise routines, and new training activities.
Adding light hand weights to the strength-training, step aerobics, boxing, and running activities will help you feel the burn and keep your fitness level moving up. Start with only a pound or two per hand, and work up from there, taking special care to mind any pain in your elbows or wrists that could indicate the weights are too heavy. A weighted hula-hoop will also help tone your middle more effectively.
Exaggerate every move you make, from the steps you take during the step aerobics activity, to your punches in boxing. The bigger the motions, the more calories you’ll burn (and the more muscles you’ll use!). Make sure to empty more space than normal so you don’t trip over furniture or knock over anything.
Become the Biggest Loser
Get celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels’ help on the Wii with her own “Fitness Ultimatum” program, or grab the “Biggest Loser” Wii game. Both include tons of exercises, multi-player challenges, and more. Perfect if you’re getting a “wee” bit bored with your Wii Fit.
Jack it up
Get your heart pumping faster by purchasing a Wii Fit step aerobics board that will bump up your Wii Fit balance board an additional 3 inches, giving you more burn for the buck. At under $20, it’s an inexpensive way to turn up the heat on your regular exercises.
Kick off a fitness challenge
Sometimes you need a jumpstart to get you going. Join a Wii Fit challenge, or follow along with a fitness plan. Google “Wii fitness plan” or “Wii Fit challenge” for tons of options. You can follow along or create your own!
If you’re not feeling the burn anymore, or you’re simply bored with your Wii Fit routines, kick it up a notch! You want to be challenged and have fun when you exercise. Then you’ll stick with it!
