Wii Fit (Wii)


Leave it to Nintendo to find a way to make working out fun. Wii Fit comes with the unique Balance Board, a pressure-sensitive, rectangular platform. The Balance Board can measure your weight, evaluate your balance, and talk to the Wii to give instant feedback as you perform a variety of exercises. The game keeps track of your progress as you go, so you'll always be motivated to top your most recent results.
