Wii Fit - Does anyone own one?

We bought a Wii over the weekend! As a family we have been having so much fun playing with it.

I've been looking at the Wii Fit. Before I spend all that money on one, I'd like to hear what people think of it. Is it worth the money?

You really do use muscle groups that you forget that you have. lol! We play basketball shootout, bowling, tennis, skeet ball, darts... With the Fit you can set up your own personal training sessions.

Any opinions out there?

I'm waiting for info too. We will probably, maybe, get a WII at Christmas time & I've wondered about the fitness add on too. I guess not many have bought one yet.

I don't own a Wii but have heard some great things about it. I would love to learn more and would consider getting one. they sound like a lot of fun - especially the fitness part.

We have been having a blast with our Wii as a family. We love playing darts, bowling, golf, tennis and baseball. We've rented a couple of games that haven't been too much fun like the carnival games but otherwise it's been great.

I want to get a Wii fit but I want to hear some opinions beforehand.

Try this thread for a few thoughts on the Wii fit. Personally, as a family, we love it. It is lots of fun. Also the Wii is good socially when all ages are visiting.

Thanks, Meg! That's my other thread and I didn't realize that people were posting there.

I think that between you and Lee, you've talked me into buying one....maybe for Christmas. I agree, even with the regular Wii, if you play the sports games like tennis, you have to be burning calories. We have a blast with our Wii so I'm sure adding the Fit to it would be great, too.

We have Wii fit and I absolutely love it! I do the yoga part of it every day to help with some issues I have with my spine and I've discovered that I love rythm boxing My lil guy enjoys the activities and views them a lot like he used to view computer games...lots of fun and lots of laughs as we get more fit together.

My ds and ddil have the Wii fit (they are college students). They both say that it is a lot of fun, but I don't think that they use it as much as they used to. They go to a gym for working out, and they pull out the Wii Fit when they have friends come over.
