  • All I can tell you is that our family uses it a lot and definitely feel like we've gotten our money out of it.

  • The original Wii Fit isn't that great compared to some of the other options. With the expansion or using the new one (wii fit 2) they've fixed some of the problems in the original.

  • Is it good for weight loss, too?

  • If you already have a wii and plan to stick to it then yes it is. But if you are looking for a fun way to get the heart rate up and you have an XBOX get the kinect.

  • I don't own one personally but everyone I know who does uses it daily and has lost weight on it.

  • I think so. I love it. It keeps me moving, and it keeps the kids moving. No couch potatoes.

  • I'm not sure. It's fun and it gets me moving, so I guess that's good, but I haven't seen any significant weight loss because of it.

  • We love our wii fit plus ans we have the ea sports active 2. The sports active 2 is REALLY worth the money when it comes down to it. It was 40 or 50 dollars and sooo much more of a workout than the fit. I highly recommend the sports active 2. I still can't get past a 10-5 min routine b/c they are so intense.
