My daughter bought this great Wii training program:
We LOVE it!
It’s really surprising how many things you can try to get in shape-how many tools are at your disposal. This is a wonderful tool. The instructor is a cartoonesque person, which for some reason feels better-less “military.” more “human”.
With this program you can choose how you want to work out on any given day: Yoga, Cardio, Step, etc. and even what level of difficulty you want to do for that day. How many minutes you want to work out-as few as 15, as much as 60.
The instructor asks you how you feel today before you make your selections and if you’re really not feeling it, you can select, “You’re lucky I’m here!” And the instructor? She praises you for even showing up. Yeah, that’s awesome 🙂
This program tests your current fitness levels and then tracks your progress. It’s really worth the price of buying the Wii system!
I love that even in the middle of a workout, you can pause and reduce the level of difficulty if it’s just too much for you. And at the end of your workout, even if you stop right in the middle, it tells you how many calories you burned for that time period.
I was playing around with the cardio portion and was SO pleased to see that the instructor was teaching at MY level. I could totally do what she was doing and I even understood it. I’m a total dweeb with physical instructions. I don’t know why, it’s just how my brain works—or doesn’t work. But, I could actually understand get what she was teaching.
I’m looking forward to working out with this program over the next month!
