"An instantaneous, customizable workout"5.0 starson by PluckyMom
Pros: I love the routines which you can customize to work on areas of preference. Tonight, for example, I let the game design a workout for me that targeted back, shoulders, arms, hips, and tummy - while also giving me a warm-up and ending with relaxation.
Cons: I wish there were more Advanced Step routines. I love those! It seems that you can't unlock Advanced and Expert levels on some activities. I wish you could.
Summary: I got a Wii Fit Plus for Christmas, and I admit it - I was less than enthused when I saw it there waiting for me. But I started using it on Dec. 27, and I haven't missed a day since (it is now January 15). The truth is that I had not been getting adequate exercise for some time, and it was showing. At 41, I was losing flexibility, and I often would get tight and pulled muscles. While I often intended to take walks and get aerobic exercise, I just wasn't finding time, too. With two younger children, getting to the gym was too hard - the travel time there and back added on to the time of the workout was too much time away. A significant reason for my love of the Wii Fit Plus is the fact that as soon as I am ready to exercise, it is ready for me. Plus, I can work out for a spell early in the day, and then do a little more later. Unlocking new levels and achieving personal bests is very fulfilling. I also love creating my own workouts each night. My muscles have been sore, and I can tell that my muffin top is vanishing as my core gets stronger and toned. . I also love that my entire family of four is now invested. Everyone wants to work out and get better at their favorite activities, including my 5-year-old. And in these cold snowy days, that's great!
