Whenever I say anyone that I get my exercise doing Wii sport and Wii fit I get this cynical look and sarcastic smile. It is the look that says using Wii is not real exercise. I the past I had no proof so I could not defend it. Saying “I get a good work out” was not selling anyone on Wii as a way to exercise. I will be the first to admit I am a “lazy bum” when it comes to exercising. I am not consistent and just never had to do it stay trim. I am slim. I could not prove I was losing weight because I have none to lose. It got tired of the look of disbelief so I stopped saying I exercise with Wii. Still I realize the importance of exercise hence I continued to do Wii.
Okay back to the point of this blog post. I read an article this week titled “Study: Nintendo Wii may provide actual exercise”. It is now safe for me to say I exercise with Wii? Studies will say just about anything to prove a point.
