The Wii and Mii

January 1, 2010

So in an effort to improve midwinter activity levels in the house, I bought us a Wii.  I’d played with other people’s before, and they were fairly benign fun.  Laura indicated an interest in the balance board/fitness pack.  Kian, being a six year old, was an easy sell.

I am now compiling an official list of which Wii games most closely resemble a workout.  I’m not including the ones designed to do so, but I could put together a parallel list of games that provide the best workout without feeling like one (the snowball fight might be a contender).

Right now the top three sweat-inducing games are: boxing, canoeing (which should be kayaking, really, since that’s what you’re in) and cycling.  Of these boxing is the one that’s most likely to make you want to heave in a hurry.  Maybe it’s the adrenaline involved adding extra  oomph.
