Getting into Wii Fit U is more fun than running to the gym.
Wii Fit U will be here soon and just in time for all those people who want to better their lives and bodies in the new year. It will feel like you’re joining a new gym without having to leave the house. All you need is a Wii Balance Board and you’re all set. The game, which is launching on January 10th, has all sorts of muscle training mini games like running in the obstacle course or scuba diving.
“Wii Fit U makes fitness fun. It’s as simple as that,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Wii Fit U is a great option for busy moms and families who want to stay active in the comfort of their own homes – which is perfect during the cold winter months.”
The game takes the best of the original Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus and has new activities that take the best of what the Game Pad has to offer. The Fit Meter, the new add-on for Fit U, measures. syncs with out of game activities. It measures what you do in real life such as steps taken or calories burnt and then the player loads the data onto Wii Fit U. If calorie totals aren’t met, the game will suggest activities to perform to meet the target. On the plus side, everyone in the family can have their own Fit Meter and upload their own data.
Celebrity fitness trainer Kathy Kaehler is even getting in on the Wii Fit U fun. Her resume looks pretty good in terms of who she has trained, like Jennifer Aniston and Cindy Crawford. “As a mom of three kids, I know how difficult it can sometimes be to find time to go to the gym,” Kaehler said. “The exercises in Wii Fit U are designed to accommodate busy schedules and can be accomplished throughout the day. Plus, it’s a fun activity for the entire family.”
You’ll be able to set up personalized workout routines as well as use recommended routines to hit on precise areas of your body/skill level. Miiverse will have gym communities where you can view your favorite workouts and track group calories/popular activities. The option of buying a bundle that has the game, Balance Board, and Fit Meter will run you 90 dollars and one that just has the game and Fit Meter will run you 50 dollars. The eShop one-month free trial is still active until January 31st so act fast. You can upgrade to the full version by buying a Fit Meter and syncing it to the game. Nintendo is trying to make getting in shape fun and if the past is any indication, they know what they’re doing.
