I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I discover an good answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably know..

I have the Wii fit and it has become a family affair. Just started using a few of the fit things but the balance games are fun. I even tried a bit of YOGA nothing like a 300 pounder doing yoga exercise...

Wii Outdoor Adventure and Wii Personal Trainer are also good ones. We also have a Wii Fit. All of these can help you get moving without even having to go outside so they are all helpful. The Wii Fit is very hard to find unless you want to go to eBay or something like that to buy for a lot more than they are in the store..

I got mine several months ago. Played the wii sport a number of times, my shoulder actually started to bother me after too much baseball. Then later I got the wii fit, which at least got me up off my @ss occasionally. Unfortunatley for me the novelty wore off and I resumes my normal laziness. Wii Fit was hard to find for a good long time, but it appears to be much more readily available in stores now...

I have a Wii and the Fit Board..

I actually purchased the Wii/Fit right when I started Nutrisystem with the idea to exercise as part of this "life change"..

Since that time I have to say that the Wii/Fit has made it easy to exercise. The routines are varied and can be hard or easy depending on your fitness level..

I would never tried Yoga, but the Wii/Fit made it fun and interesting..

Now, four months later, I have found that the Fit software just doesn't challenge me enough..

I recently purchased "My Fitness Coach", which doesn't require the Fit board (and doesn't use it). This program is plenty difficult since it will adjust the exercises to your fitness level. It also will allow you to use other workout ads like balance ball, step, hand weights, and heart rate monitor. I highly recommend this software..

I still use the Fit board to "weigh" myself just to keep track on the system and for some of the balance games (which are fun)..

I also understand that EA is coming out with a fitness program that will utilize the Fit board..

Overall, I do really like the Wii and I rarely play any other games on it..

In the four months that I have been using the Wii, I believe I have only missed a handful of days other than when I was out of town on business..

Try doing the Wii Fit Step Aerobics while holding hand-weights and Boxing while wearing ankle weights. I get a MUCH better workout that way..

I love my Wii Fit!..

I remember that there was a big problem when the Wii came out. It seems that many people got too into the game and the remote came out of their hands smashing their way through too many TVs...

I have a Wii. I also have Wii Fit. The key with Wii Fit is that you have to go through a little boring stuff and it will advance the reps and the activity times as you get better. The better you are the harder they make it. They also unlock more and more activities as you log more and more Wii Fit Credits..

I have unlocked all activites and I am at 3 or 4 stars, with 4 being the highest, on all activities..

My balance has improved 10 fold. I have a stronger upper chest and lower back and my core muscles have greatly improved..

To increase resistance I have added ankle and wrist weights to my routine. I also do the aerobics holding 10 lb dumbells..

I hope this helps!..

Thanks for the insight Markimus. Recently I added the Wii Fit to my Wii. It's pretty good. I usually spend about 15 - 20 after work. I spent a little more this past weekend. I have a lot to work on.

How did I miss this thread before?....

I contend that you can be old school, past 17 (way past in my case) and still be a gaming geek..

You just have to remember to get off your butt and do some actual exercise as well....

Among the machines that I have progressed through:.


Atari 400.


Mac 512e (before they had hard drives).

Vendex 8088.

Various home assembled 386 machines.



And, I currently have 3 on my desk...Gateway (modified), iMac 24" and MacBook...not counting the work PC Thinkpad....The wife has two and the sons two more...Our house can basically out compute NASA circa 1968....

Anyone need some old computer parts or software?...I could start an e-bay store with the old technology crap in my garage...

Please remember to put the emphasis on 'geek'. Gaming is for kids and wannabes. A guy I know asked me to come over to his place and play Guitar Hero. I dragged over my beat Telecaster and classic Vibrolux Reverb and gave him an earful. Who needs a plastic toy and software?.

You wanna be a shooter? As I posted here back in the day, when I reached goal weight, I got myself and the missus CCW permits and some shiny new guns. That was my "reward". We go to the range once a month to keep sharp. This spring we are taking a tactical shooting course run by ex-government types I know. It's gonna be cool..

Get off the couch - doing the real thing may be more challenging, but it's fun, rewarding, and you actually get to meet some really cool people who don't just sit around stinking up your living room and eating out of your fridge...

Respectfully, I both agree/and I disagree with what you are saying..

Yes, Rock Band and guitar hero have nothing to do with actually playing a guitar. You have to not confuse reality with diversion. They are seperate and each one has it's place..

Nothing beats the sound of an old telly or strat in practiced hands. I wish I could play one...and one of the reasons that I don't play either of those video games is that if I were to invest the time...it would be in lessons to play the Esquire standing in my upstairs office that I've never been able to figure out on my own...not to pretend I could play one..

But, just because you spend time playing a computer game doesn't mean that you can't do real life stuff too. They aren't mutually exclusive..

I know lots of folks who game online and have interesting lives that aren't 100% in front of an LCD monitor. My group that I hang out with in WOW includes:.

A Baptist Minister, a Canadian Mountie, a fellow who is spending a year in China teaching English, a flooring salesman from New Jersey, a computer programmer from Germany and a construction worked from North Carolina..

None of them are glued to their chairs, they all do other interesting things and then once in a while we all connect to attack some random pixels together..

I actually know a guild made up mostly of lawyers from the Bay Area...now there's a group you can derive some real pleasure out of beating up...even if it's just electronically..

Just like eating right, it's about balance and doing things in the correct proportion...

1972 on an IBM 370 running OS/MVT. I don't remember what the MVT stands for. If I wanted to run a program that was larger than 128kb, yes I said 128kb, I had to get departmental permission from the chairman. I had to provide the reason why I wanted to run a job that was that big, and they would run the program overnight as Class D lowest priority...

Yes, like any exercise, Wii Fit will only help you lose weight if you use it. And outdoors is free..
