In Pictures: Wii Fit

  • An included on-screen fitness trainer will provide you with tutorials and encouragement.

  • The Wii Balance Board during activities allows players to follow along to movements ensuring they have full control of the on-screen activities. This allows personal improvement goals to be set to effectively help you to stay fit.

  • Wii Fit comes bundled with the Wii Balance Board and is set for a mid-2008 launch in Australia.

  • There are four training categories including Aerobic Exercises, Muscle Workouts, Yoga and Balance Games.

  • The game allows up to eight people to track progress and monitor performance. Once you insert the Wii Fit Disc into a Wii console, a new channel – Wii Fit Channel will be added to your Wii Menu system.

  • Nintendo turns the living room into a fitness centre with Wii Fit and the Wii Balance Board.

  • There are over 40 different activities within these training categories such as Hula Hoop, Ski Jump, Press-up Challenge, Rhythm Boxing, Rowing Squat, Lunge and classic Yoga poses such as Half Moon, Tree and Crocodile Twist.

  • Wii Fit encourages family members as a whole to take an active interest in understanding their own fitness in a fun and entertaining way, in the comfort of their home.

  • Once the Wii Fit Channel is added it enables users to not have to insert the Wii Fit Disc into a Wii console in order for the Wii Balance Board to scale your weight, calculate your BMI (body mass index), measure the centre of your bodily balance and conduct a balance test in order to calculate your Wii Fit Age.

  • Wii Fit comes bundled with the Wii Balance Board, an accessory developed exclusively for the Wii console. It is a pressure sensitive, wireless balance board that goes on the floor – so someone can stand on it in front of the TV. It senses weight and shift in balance in any direction.

  • Each category will help you develop bodily balance control ability, burn fat in the body, help tone and condition muscles, as well as help increase aerobic stamina.
