So as some of you might know Nintendo's Wii Fit is out.
What is Wii Fit?
The short version is: Wii Fit is a game for the Nintendo Wii (game console) and uses a unique platform peripheral called the Wii Balance Board that can measure a user's weight and their center of gravity, and calculate their body mass index when told the user's height. The game has about 40 different activities, including yoga poses, push ups, and other exercises.
Wii Fit tracks a user's "Wii Fitness Age" through a daily body test basing the result on the user's current age, weight, and athletic ability.

So basically i got it today. I measured up @ 112.5kg, a bmi of around 37 and poor posture from the COG test. lol
When you set yourself up in the game it asks you for a goal and a time frame to get to it and coaches you along the way.
You have a range of activities available straight from the box and you unlock more as you play and put time into the bank. The activities are Yoga, Muscle Training, Aerobics and balance training. You can also log your own daily activities into it when you do your daily training.
Anyway its heaps of fun, Cassie(cac33) got right into it.
