Saturday I didn’t have time to go to the gym. We were out and about and then I had things to take care of at my house. So, in the evening I thought I’d give my new Wii game “The Biggest Loser” a try and see if I could get some kind of a workout done. I wasn’t expecting much, but I figured something was better than nothing.
I did the “easy” one first for about 28 minutes. Okay, I was sweaty and it worked me a bit. Then I tried the middle level “challenging” for around 20 minutes.
It kicked my butt.
I didn’t realize that jumping rope in place or doing jumping jacks was so hard still. Whew!
So, I take back everything I thought about how that workout wasn’t going to do it for me. I was sweating just like I do when I jog.
I also tried just the Wii Fit Plus and it can get the heart rate up as well.
Now I know I truly can do the Wii at home on days I just can’t get over to the gym. Yay!
Oh, and I didn’t use shoes for the easy workout, but I did for the harder one. I don’t like exercising without shoes.
Anyone have hints on whether you use shoes or not when working out with the Wii?
