Wii Fit Plus


Top 5 reasons to work out on the Wii and Wii U:

  1. It's suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
  2. It's fun, so it keeps you engaged and more likely to stay with it.
  3. It's customizable, so you can tailor a workout specifically to you.
  4. It's less money than a gym membership and personal trainer.
  5. It's private, with an on-screen personal trainer right there in your home.

With more than 22 million copies sold worldwide, Wii Fit Plus and Wii Fit U are the premier fitness games on the Wii console. There are more than 70 activities covering aerobics, balance, cardio, strength training, and yoga. Players can create customized routines to fit their skill levels and fitness goals. Exercise is combined with fun games and mental stimulation to keep players entertained and active.

Interactive fitness gaming in the comfort and privacy of your home

Players interact with the games and activities in front of them. Exercises aren't just shown they're taught. The Balance Board and Wii Remote let your Wii console monitor the movements that are made, so the on-screen instructor can gently correct and optimize their workouts.

For a fraction of the cost of a gym membership and personal trainer fees, a virtual trainer will guide players through a customized program designed to fit THEIR needs. So even if you are a beginner or just getting started, Wii fitness will conform to fit you.
