Nintendo Wii Fit Balance Board
Advantages: Portable and a well laid out workout session!
Disadvantages: A tad pricey but worth it!
If you haven't noticed already the Wii fit or even the Wii console alone has become a bit of a big deal since its release! The new breed of console is soloed out by its unique 'movement' based games, started out with the sports based package such as tennis and boxing and has since progressed through different platform games and now fitness is the new rave!
Anyone with a Wii console, Wii fit board and some floor space can now convert their living room into a gym! The whole system comes in two parts, the board itself and the game that goes into the console. The game can be found for around £20 in most stores now which of course sounds very appealing seeing most console games at the moment are closer to £40! The surprise is when you find that the board that goes with it costs around £70 depending where you find it! but is it worth it or should you just plod out of the house and sign up for a gym membership?
I was surprised when i first went on the Wii fit at just how responsive the whole system is! Each movement made is picked up perfectly and allows the workouts to be effective for each part of your body! Once you have the system running you are offered a range of workouts, even if you don't have the time for a full workout you can set it up for a simple quick fitness session! The workouts show you how to position yourself on the board and for how long as well, so theres no worrying just instructions to follow, got to be cheaper then a personal fitness assistant right!?
To board is said to take around 23 stone and judging by the sturdiness of the uni i would say thats about right however despite is strength you are advised not to jump on it!? a bit silly yes but not something you would probably test after spending £80 on it!
I wouldn't have believed before that a workout on this device would be of any real benefit to my fitness but after using it quite a few times you can actually feel a difference!
Overall i would say that the price is very much worth it for this unit! As long as you stay committed to actually working out on it then you will start to feel the differences and so will your wallet compared to a years gym membership and personal trainer!
Summary: Great overall unit!
