@chiefeagle02 I love DDR. It's one of my specialties and I can always find space to put a mat. Or I like to play without the mat. I also think DDR is a great group fitness tool, but most adults aren't familiar with it and only some kids are willing to DDR. But I'm going to change all that. I've developed a technique where I can teach anybody to DDR at expert in about an hour.

@The_Fox Unfortunately you are not alone in that attitude. Most personal trainers pooh pooh the Wii and the various fitness games. But I have studied a number of games for a number of years, and this console will revolutionize the fitness industry. Exergaming is real and it's effective. What concerns me about exergaming is that people are underestimating what they are doing on the console so don't prepare and comport themselves accordingly. They don't play seriously, with form, technique, focus and grace.

@Squiggle55 I have been playing and studying new ways to play Wii Fit Plus for the past 6 years. Check out my articles on Examiner.com. National Wii Fitness Examiner and I post workouts on Youtube and Facebook Wii Fitness Examiner. I guarantee you you will discover new ways to play old games.

@GN004Nadleeh Did you know that in Maine, psychiatrists can prescribed a patient a Wii gaming console? Probably not. Many are using the Wii console in hospitals, senior centers, rehabilitation clinics, etc. So there are those of us who believe that exergaming does work. Also, the quality and genius of the games Nintendo has created for the Wii are unparalleled. Go get Wii Music and play it for an hour. Experience the genius.

@GamerJunkie As a fitness professional, I was absolutely enraged when Wii Fit came out. You can hear me on my Virtual Fitness Wii FAB BlogTalk Radio show bashing it before I even tried it,. But I had to eat my words. Wii Fit Plus is an amazing, inventive and ever-evolving fitness journey for me. I am now a leading expert (and probably only) Wii Fit Plus expert.

@Tuurtledove So true. And it's safer than running off to the gym and taking a fitness class. The Wii games are intuitive and the Wii console is easy to use. If used properly, people of all types of fitness backgrounds can benefit. Another thing, it levels the playing field, so you don't necessarily have to have age groups. And seniors love the Wii. This is a huge and generally overlooked market by any fitness professional. And this goes for all Wii activity programs. Sticking a Wii in a room with no structure or program is not what you want to do, Trust me. Get trained. Play seriously.

As a Wii fitness expert, I can prove my claims that you can get a great workout using the Wii. I enjoyed reading the article. I'd like to add that the Wii gaming system will revolutionize the way we do fitness, just not yet. As a fitness professional of various group fitness arts, I have a great respect for the quality of this gaming console and the undiscovered gold mine of fitness activities that one console can offer groups, yes groups. Check out Wii Fitness Examiner on Facebook. Check out my videos on Youtube. Check out Virtual Fitness Wii FAB (For Absolute Beginners).
