i have a wii fit and i generally like it but feel like there's a lot of screens and messages to get through that it slows me down. In the game though, I like the rhythmic boxing and the hula the best, I just have to make sure my blinds are closed when I do the hula because i think I look rediculous, but it's fun!!!

So many great suggestions. I think the Dance and the Zumba sound super fun!
Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

Oh what great ideas, I didn't even know they HAD Zumba for the Wii, and will be buying that as soon as I can, along with a few other things. (a platform to raise the Wii balance board up 3 inches, to make the step games more challenging, a wrist band so I don't have to worry about throwing the remote lol, and others)... It's my mom's Wii but I absolutely love it!
I love the wii fit plus, there's yoga moves (for balance and strength) and some of the strength yoga moves are a real challenge! There are lots of great games for balance, and the hula hoop plus is great. It's a lot of fun to me, and doesn't really feel like a workout, but I love it anyways.
Zumba, however, just might wear me out lol.

I bought the new UFC Training game for Wii. I have been running/exercising outside, so I'm thinking I'll probably dig more into the game when the weather starts turning worse and I want to balance off the treadmill work w/ something else.

I love Wii Tennis. I'll play with my left hand for a match just to change things up a bit (and it's hard!). I'll do the Tennis training games, too. Always trying to beat my best score.
Today I have my weekly weigh in with Wii Fit and will do some step aerobics.
We bought a system for our bedroom, because my 7-yo grandson (who lives with us) chimes in too much when we play in the family room (when I'm trying to get a good workout in). I'll play tennis and bowling with him for fun.

I like wii bowling and horseshoes. I need to be careful not to twist. I have had a back fusion.

Definitely agree with Just Dance, it doesn't even really feel like you're exercising because it's so fun, especially if you grab a few friends to join you! It can be a really good laugh :)
The only wii game I feel like I get any workout with is the boxing but I love it!

If you like cardio, Zumba, Just Dance 2 and The Michael Jackson experience are my personal favorites. If you have Redbox (movie rental machines) near you, they are now carrying wii games. For $2 you can rent the game and see if it works for you before spending the money to purchase. That is how I found both the Just Dance 2 and Michael Jackson. Rented them, loved them, bought them.
If you aren't familiar with Redbox, go to www.redbox.com. You can search to see if they have any near you.
