The Wii and Mii
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.
