I just wanted to see if anyone has tried everyones favourite personal trainer and gym rolled into one console - The Nintendo Wii. More specifically, Wii Fit.
I can't wait to try one, but I ain't buying one
All the out of shape people I know are obsessed with it.. "do the Wii" is a phrase that's now replaced "going to the gym". Personally I think it's great to get people moving around more and as I keep reading, 'a good introduction to exercise'. Common sense will tell you that's as far as it goes...
But now i'm getting hit by peoples new found Wii confidence. "I have excellent balance, stability and posture", says Quasimodo plus 60lbs of fat. People that i've never heard use any of those words (stability, balance, posture) now claiming to be the picture of health...
Me: "ok.. who told you that"
Quasimodo plus 60lbs: "the Wii"
(then proceed to go outside, find nearest wall and bang my head off it a few times)
I guess my tone probably implies that this should be in the pet peeves thread, but I do like the Wii. I'm not a console guy, but I found the Wii to be fun. I've not used Wii Fit, yet. When I heard of it's launch I thought it was a great idea, but now i'm seeing lot's of people who are under the false belief that they are healthy. There's always going to be a negative.
Just thought I would 'throw this one out there'.
p.s apologies if th Wii has been discussed already, I missed it if it has.
