I have owned the Wii Fit for a couple of months and as a family we love it for all different reasons, me personally I use the Step fit and I watch telly whilst doing this and time just goes by and my fitness has improved greatly its safe and i am in my own home the rest of my family love the competion and try to beat each others scores !! lets face it, its raining outside and it beats Monopley !!! It is expensive but I must admit we have not got bored yet and I have with some of the others, and anything that encourages my children to be fit must be a bonus ??
