Getting a great Wii workout with the Nintendo Wii (R) should be easy enough. After all, this is the active style of computer games. A major selling point of the Wii was that it had you up off the sofa and doing stuff, right from the very first release.
But these days, there are so many choices of games for the Wii that you could spend a long time trying to figure out which ones will give you the best fitness workout. There are games to play with a friend and programs that you can follow by yourself. In this article we look at some of the top choices of games for a great Wii workout that is fun too.
Active Life Outdoor Challenge
This is a mixed pack of workout games that you can do with a friend if you want (that’s the challenge element). You’ll need to try a few of the options to find what works best for you. They will all work you hard, and some are also a lot of fun.
With Active Life Outdoor Challenge you will be running, jumping, pumping your arms and stretching as far as you could wish. Just be careful not to overdo your workout because you might be having so much fun that it is hard to stop!
Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party
This is a game that is available for other consoles such as Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and can give you a good workout no matter which format you choose. The main difference with the Wii version is that you have to keep the beat with your arms. This makes you a little more active.
Dance Dance Revolution is perfect for anyone who likes dancing. As a workout, it gets everything moving. It’s much better than just dancing to music by yourself, where you would do the same moves over and over. Highly recommended.
Wii Fit Plus
With the original Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, you probably do not get such a good Wii workout as with some of the other games. However, Wii Fit Plus has extra games that make it more fun.
The fun factor is crucial in any workout, especially for those of us who have a problem with motivation. And the truth is that any workout that you actually do is better for you than any workout that you don’t do, even if the workout that you don’t do is the best fitness program in the world. Pick something that is fun to do and you will be half way to achieving a regular fitness schedule with your Wii workout.
