This bundle includes:
Wii Fit attracted millions of new players to the world of video games. Now Wii Fit Plus offers a range of new features and enhancements to help players reinvigorate their workouts, along with exercises and balance games designed to keep them fun. Players will find a new dimension to the Wii Fit experience as they easily set their own customized workout routines or choose 20-, 30- or 40-minute workouts based on how much time they have available. Users will also be able to choose from specialized workout routines that focus on an individual’s personal fitness goals or certain target areas. And with the addition of activities like Skateboarding and Rhythm Kung Fu, players will be using the Wii Balance Board™ accessory in a variety of new and fun ways.
Wii Balance Board
The Wii Balance Board™ accessory was created from the ground up to work with Wii Fit. It's an innovative peripheral for Wii that's simple, fun, and it's a great way to get you off of the couch and into the action. The Wii Balance Board is more than just a scale —it can read your real-life movements and bring them to life on screen, just like the Wii Remote™ controller. Realistically snowboard down a mountain or walk a tight rope—it's just one more way to get into the game.
Please Note: The Wii Console is not included with Wii Fit.

|The Body Test
The Body Test in Wii Fit is a short and simple set of activities used to gauge your body's performance. After choosing a Mii™ - a virtual caricature unique to Wii - to represent you, use the Wii Balance Board to measure your center of balance, Body Mass Index (BMI), and body control. Based on these results, you can also determine your Wii Fit Age. The whole family can engage in the Body Test and compare their progress together!
Your Body Test will begin simply by checking your center of balance. After stepping onto the Wii Balance Board accessory™ with your feet spread equally apart, Wii Fit will check the balance of your posture and your BMI. Once the measurement is complete, you will be able to see where your center of balance is located and what your BMI is currently.
Your BMI, or Body Mass Index, is determined in Wii Fit by a formula comparing your weight and height. You'll even be asked for variables such as the weight of your clothes, so Wii Fit can provide you with an accurate measurement. Once your BMI is displayed, you'll have the option of seeing your weight as well, but that's completely up to you. In fact, you can even protect your information from other users with a private PIN number.
players under 20 years of age:
After discovering your BMI, you'll then test your body control. Wii Fit measures your body control by using two randomly selected balance tests. Perform the tests by following the simple on-screen instructions and giving it your best shot. After completing these tests, you'll be given your Wii Fit Age.
|Wii Fit Age
Your Wii Fit Age will be calculated based on your balance-test results, taking into consideration your actual age. Keep in mind: Your Wii Fit Age is only a measurement of your current performance, so if you're unhappy with it, you'll have another opportunity to improve it the next time you play.
Once you've completed the Body Test, you can stamp the calendar, so you can keep track of your activity. During your first and subsequent Body Tests, you'll be asked if you'd like to set a BMI goal for some point in the future which can be customized to fit your schedule. Check out the "What is Wii Fit?" section for more details on charting your progress.
|Training 3D Demo
All activities in the Yoga and Strength Training categories allow you to view a 3D model of your chosen exercise, as performed by a virtual trainer. You can even view it in realtime, from almost any angle and depth, until you completely understand the correct body movements and positions. Want to learn the perfect pose? Study it here.
During and after many of the Wii Fit training activities, you'll gain important feedback on your performance. For example, during Yoga and Strength Training, you will receive detailed animations of where your center of balance is during your workout. Afterwards, based on your performance, you'll receive personal feedback that can help you improve your following sessions. Understanding your balance during workouts is essential to a good training.
In addition to the standard four training modes, there is also a Favorites section included in Wii Fit. In this section, you can select from a list of 10 activities you choose most often—it's different for each user.
|Wii Fit Bank
As you do your daily training, you'll earn more Fit Credits that go into your Wii Fit Bank. As your Fit Credits add up, more activities will become available to you. To put it simply: The more you play, the more activities you'll be able to do.
Training is at the core of Wii Fit. You can spend as much (or as little) time as you want trying out all of the 40+ activities Wii Fit offers. Each game is designed to help you work your way to a more fit you. Depending on your preference, you can get a structured workout with an in-game personal trainer in Yoga or Strength Training, or for something faster paced and less structured you can try your hand at the Aerobics or Balance Games.
As you progress in training, it's only natural you'll get better at the Wii Fit activities. When you reach certain benchmarks in training, new levels of difficulty will become available, increasing the number of options you have for your workout. Continuous training will also lead to receiving new tips on how to combine trainings. One example is combining the Warrior pose from Yoga with the Lunge from Strength Training. Who knows what else you'll unlock?
|How did you do?
After every activity, you'll receive a star rating indicating how you performed along with your results. This is then compared to the other users who play Wii Fit, so you can see how the rest of your friends and family scored compared to you. If you are not satisfied with the rating you achieve, you can try as many times as you'd like to improve your score.
