Play Wii, Burn Calories

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Personal trainer in Scotland explores the benefits of playing Wii every day.

"Zander Urquhart, 32, is thought to be the first fitness expert to adopt the Nintendo Wii as an exercise machine. Four people at a time can exercise using the Wii's unique motion-sensitive controller to mimic a tennis racket, baseball bat, golf club or boxing gloves. University studies suggest players can burn 125 calories during a 15-minute session."

Quite impressive for all those people that thought Wii wouldn't help your fitness!

"A study by Liverpool John Moores University found that in an average 12.2-hour gaming week, Wii players can burn 1830 calories - shifting 27lb a year."

So its quite simple, Nintendo fanboys will be fitter than Sony or Microsoft fanboys, nuff said.
