Put away that pen and paper. Tracking your workout routines and charting your progress is such a mundane task, and it distracts and takes valuable time. With its innovative built-in tracking systems, Wii Fit Plus does all of that work for you, keeping track of your goals and activities. You have access to your fitness progress whenever you want it, in a format that's easy to read and understand.
Wii Fit Tracking Features
- Wii does it for you: Every calorie you burn while playing Wii Fit Plus is tracked and charted for you.
- Tracking and customization: Wii Fit Plus will help you select a fitness level you're trying to obtain, and works around your schedule to create a workout routine to get you there.
- Track the things you do outside: It's easy to select the type of exercise you did (light, medium or heavy exercise) and for how long.
Data made easy
The first step to letting Wii Fit track your progress is to register yourself on the game. It's easy to do, and only takes a few minutes. You'll simply enter in some basic information such as your height and your date of birth – the rest will be taken care of by your Wii console. All you have to do is stand on the Wii Balance Board, and Wii Fit Plus will log your weight and check your balance.
BMI and Wii Fit Age? Huh?
These are the two numbers, aside from your weight, that Wii Fit will keep track of for you. BMI stands for Body Mass Index, and it's a measure of your body fat based on height and weight that is used by agencies such as the World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health. Your Wii Fit Age is simply a number that represents how well you can control your left and right balance.
These numbers will help you work with Wii Fit to determine your fitness goals, and help the game know just how challenging to make each workout activity.
Setting your goals
Once you have registered your profile, it's time to set your goals. Wii Fit Plus will help you select a fitness level you're trying to obtain, and works around your schedule to create a workout routine to get you there. Your goal will appear on the calendar, and Wii Fit Plus will provide helpful and encouraging feedback to help you out along the way.
Log your other physical activities
You don't want to waste the activities you perform when you're away from the Wii console. It's easy to select the type of exercise you did (light, medium or heavy exercise) and for how long, and you can see the affect it's had on your progress through easy-to-read graphs and charts.
