Description

From famed Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, Wii Fit is a take on combining fitness with entertainment. The Wii Balance Board designed specifically for Wii Fit comes with the game.

The Balance Board is used for measuring weight as well as the user's center of gravity for a number of exercises and games. Among these are:

Yoga Poses: Deep Breathing, Half-Moon, Warrior, Tree, Sun Salutation, Standing Knee, Palm Tree, Chair, Triangle, Downward-Facing Dog, King Of The Dance, Cobra, Bridge, Crocodile Twist, Shoulder Stand

Muscle Workouts: Single Leg Extension, Press-Up and Side Stand, Torso and Waist Twists, Jackknife, Lunge, Rowing Squat, Single Leg twist, Sideways Leg Lift, Parallel Stretch, Tricep Extension, Arm and Leg Lift, Single Arm Stand, Press-Up Challenge, Jackknife Challenge, Stretch Challenge

Wii Fit also integrates the user's Mii in a similar way to Wii Sports functions, however it also keeps track of BMI (Body Mass Index) and a number of other health related statistics, which can be compared to the other users of Wii Fit across the world in the game's own channel.

The Wii Remote's speaker also gives the player instructions and updates to their performance, which is used especially for those activities which require the player to be facing away from the television screen.
