Nintendo Wii Fit

The word on the streets is that Nintendo is getting ready to release their Wii Fit product in the next couple of days (Wed May 21). The Wii Fit is a combination balance board and fitness program for the Nintendo Wii console. It is a hardware and software package that makes it fun to exercise. It includes aerobics, yoga, balance, and strength training. In addition it helps people set/track fitness goals and measure their BMI (Body Mass Index).

Since the current Nintendo Wii console distribution is still being controlled by eBay sellers (since they are buying up all of the available inventory for resale), I am sure the new Wii Fit product will follow the same course. It may drive up the demand for the Nintendo Wii Console even more since Moms, Seniors, and every other segment of the population will get in on the frenzy. You can use this site if you are really itching to try and get your hands on a console: (

Overall, I think this is great. Anything to help motivate us to get off of the couch to exercise can't hurt. Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the game is rated E for Everyone (ESRB Rating: E).
