I just got to try the balance activities and it was pretty cool and I felt it was worth a quick mention that maybe around the PT phase one should borrow a friend's or get one. I get my Wii back in June/July and I'm looking forward to it. Anyone else tried this before? Because it not, DO!
I bought myself a Wii fit as a Christmas gift for myself. I love it! I have balance issues following a few strokes, and it has really helped me. The nice part is, it keeps track of everything for you, and shows your progress, and tracks your goals. I wish you well...
Ok now you are talking my world I love my wii. It has kept me mentally active, I love brain academy. I got the wii fit for my b-day in April. Haven't opened the box yet. If you footies say its good I will open it today and give it a try.
Wii is made by Nintendo. It is a gaming device that is interactive with you and your tv. It runs around $250.00 and worth every penny. The Wii fit is an exercise program that you follow along while it plays on your TV. There is wii sports which is tennis, bowling, golf, boxing, I've never tried the boxing. There are all sorts of games for it. Walmart, Target, Electronic Stores carry them. Games Stop (a store) is kinda cool because you can buy used games fairly cheap and they will buy back games you don't like.
ok so Update:
I've unpacked my Wii and started up Wii Fit. This message will be short because I'm taking a break from it. I've already played 20 minutes today and I hope to do 30 minutes a day on it. I have been focusing on the yoga and balance games. However I have tried the aerobics for the basic step ativity and that has been tricky, yet helpful. It actually reminds me of DDR. As I progress I hope to add more aerobic activities and then once I get my mojo back work towards my strength training. So far so good because I haven't fallen over. Well...there's still ten more minutes to go.
