Is playing sports and losing weight while having fun really possible? With the Nintendo Wii Fit Balance Board it seems so.
With exercises aimed at improving balance and posture, changing the body mass index or simply relaxing, Wii Fit uses the latest technology to help people achieve physical well-being.
The first step is to step onto the Wii Balance Board, to get an overview of your fitness level. By measuring BMI ( body mass index ), analyzing the center of gravity and calculating athletic ability with a few simple tests, the software determines the Wii Fit age, a unique value for this game, ranging from 2 to 99.
Wii Fit features over 40 different exercises in four training disciplines.
The very interesting and useful thing in this period of the year, when you want to lose weight in view of the swimsuit test, is the availability of aerobic exercises, exercises to improve balance and posture, strengthen muscle mass and relax with yoga positions.
We have calculated that by repeating the game called "Step Dance" 3 times for a total of 30 minutes, a person of average weight (about 70 kg) and 170 cm tall has an average calorie consumption of just under 300 calories, the equivalent of an 80g slice of fruit tart.
To help and stimulate people to follow a sort of constant workout (the real strong point of the device), the Wii Fit includes a special Wii Fit Channel which allows you to keep the data relating to the statistics of up to 8 people, also taking into account the exercises performed without the use of the Wii Balance Board to ensure an accurate view of the state of well-being.
