Hi, all! I just joined this team, nice to meet you! Right now my fitness program consists of alternating Wii Fit with EA Sports Active every other day, and I use the Wii Fit for the weigh-ins (no wishful thinking or leaning against the bathroom wall!). I'm looking forward to learning what people think of other Wii fitness programs, since I know I'm eventually going to have to change it up to avoid boredom, which is the number one reason I personally quit anything.

Hi Everyone,

I just joined this group because working out with my Wii is starting to get boring. I got the Wii last Christmas, but didn't really get serious until like April of this year.

I have Wii Sports, My Fitness Coach and just got EA-Active for Father's Day. I started using Wii Sports boxing before I found SparkPeople. After that I got My Fitness Coach, but I didn't like it very much. Finally I joined SP and started regular exercise. On SP I found out about EA-Active and wanted to get it. My wife and little boy got it for me for Father's Day. I have been keeping at EA-Active nearly everyday since I got it, but I am starting to get bored by it. (Just like everyone who is reading this post is getting bored.)

Sorry for the long-windedness. Hi! I'm here.

I know how you feel. I just moved as well. Its hard getting back into the swing of things. I Put the WII board where I have to walk over it. This causes me to use it several times a day for short times until I get my focus back.

Hey all! I've had my wii fit board for like 4 months now and I used it a lot when I first got it...but ever since I moved it has been collecting dust under my bed! haha so I discovered this team and I thought why not? So with dieting, going to the gym, and using the wii...I should be very successful!

Hi Everyone. I'm Amy from the Chicago burbs! I have had a Wii and Fit for a while now, and EA Active. Of course, I get lazy and have completely slacked off, so here I am ready to start again. I have a Yoga class on Mondays, so starting tomorrow, I will be back on the 30 day challenge! The EA Sports sounds like fun too, but I better get going on the other games again before I get any more.

Here's to losing, I know WII can do it!!

Hey - I'm Matt from Minnesota.

I started the Wii Fit on 19-Jul and have done the body tests each day since.

I picked up both Golds Gym Cardio Workout and EA Sports Active today (both are on sale at Target for $10.00 off this week).

I especially like the yoga on Wii Fit.

I started the 30 day challenge for EA Sports Active. For only 22 minutes, it sure had me sweatiing!

Hi everyone! I've had my Wii Fit for a long time, but after the first few months, I set it aside and now it's gathering dust.

I'm ready to drag it out, dust it off and start using it again.

Hopefully, being a part of this team will keep me on the right track. Looking forward to getting started.



My FIRST goal is to be closer to 200 than 300.....

Hi all, I've had my WiiFit about 2 1/2 months now, and have been using it religiously. I still have a fat lil Mii, but working hard on changing that.

Just wanted to stop in and say hi to all you other WiiFitters

Hello WiiUsers,

My name is Roger and I've had WiiFit since it came out. Unfortunetly I didn't keep up with it, due to non motivation. However ever since EA ACTIVE'S release, I've been very very consistant on workout out every day. I'm trying so hard to lose the belly fat and handles. I can't afford a Gym membership and I just can't make myself use the fitness room here at the complex. Just grosses me out thinking about other people sweating and stuff on those things. So that's why I got EA ACTIVE. I pose daily blogs on my Spark Page of every workout. So if you are intrested in checking them out, your welcome to visit and thumb through them! I'm glad to join others who use the Wii Balance Board for their Workouts! Here's to many new friends!! Cheers.

Roger

Hi - I used my Wii Fit for the first time today and hope that this group will help keep me motivated to use it each day. My Wii Fit age was 14 years older than I really am, so I need help. I did about 20 minutes of Aerobic & Balance today. My knees hurt when I tried a Yoga, but I liked it anyway. Any suggestions for someone who is just starting out.

Hello, I'm new here. I have had my wii fit since it came out, but I'm just now starting to use it how it should be used. I try to do at least 30 minutes of cardio every morning. It helps wake me up and gets my day started on the right foot!

Hi, I'm a newbie here, my friend Grace told me about your group. My DD bought a Wii a couple of weeks ago, and I have to admit, I've only used it once so far. So I'm hoping being part of this group will get me moving with it. I'm guessing I'm one of the older members of your group, pushing 57. I have two daughters, almost 33 and 21, and one grandson 6. I've been on SP a couple of years now, had lost 20+ but unfortunately found them again last year, so now need to get busy again. So enough about me, hope you all have a good day.

Hi, I am new here, just got my Wii Fit yesterday and I love it! I had a Y membership, but it was hard for me to get there and get motivated to leave the house, now it is so easy to just do it and I don't have to worry about the weather outside or anything, love it!

Quick question - this is probably going to sound really silly, but I cannot figure out how to do a profile pic that will show up on the message boards. I've searched through my Spark page, and have added pictures, but I don't know how to set a main one. Help? =)

I've been on and off spark people for the past couple of weeks but now that I have the internet at home I can update my trackers in the evening :). I hope to be on here a lot more. I have been working out with my Wii Fit and just got the Active. (Which I really like) I posted a blog about my first exercise experience with the Active.

Hello, I'm Jessica and I've been on SP for about a week and a half. We got a wii to help me stay in shape (and for the awesome fun) so I was super excited to find a group on here! If anyone has any workout ideas I'd love to hear them. I can say one thing about the wii fit is that I wish there was a way you could string a bunch of the exercises together to form a routine, oh my that would be great. Anyway, hello and have a great day!

I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams.
I am an athlete. I am a runner. (runzoerun.com)

Thanks to Tonka I just found this group. Been on SP for 3 weeks now and never thought to search for a Wii group.

I am Nicole, 37, live in BC and have a hubby, 2 girls and we are all owned by the cat emoticon

I use the Wii Fit, My Fitness Coach and Gold's Gym Cardio Workout. I also have DDR but haven't really gotten into it that much mainly because I lack any natural rhythm emoticon . I got the Wii Fit for Christmas and was very distraught when I stepped on it and it told me I was 152 lbs I really didn't think I was that heavy. I was bouncing my weight up and down until I found SP because while I was moving more I wasn't watching what I ate so of course some weeks I'd be good others not so much.

Now that I'm eating better things are working out better and I really love to hula hoop (after 10 minutes my sides are sore but it's a good hurt).

Glad to have found this group emoticon

Hello, hello -

I'm still trying to establish my bearings on this site, but I'm enjoying it so far. An old friend from high school recommended SP after she met great success here, so I thought I'd give it a shot! I got a Wii with the Fit at the start of the summer, and its been a blast. I've noticed the Fit gets pretty sassy some times! I don't mind it most of the time, but it can be a little annoying. I just picked up the EA Active and tried it out for the first time today, and I'm really digging that.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to some weight loss and better health. I can already tell SP has me thinking about it in a better way than before - here's hoping that trend continues!

Hi, I am new to the Wii team page. My name is Odalis & I am a middle school teacher & mom of 3 (17,12,9) in Tampa, Florida.
I started with SparkPeople a while back and then quit. Therefore this will be a new start for me and I am excited to begin using SP and the Wii. I have several games (Sports, Outdoor Adventure, Wii Fit, Wii Active).
Does anyone have a suggestion where I should begin? I thought I would try the 30 day challenge...along with my husband.
I am looking forward to the challenges and support. Now I just have to update my page :o)

My name is Stephanie and I have EA Active for Wii which I absolutely love. I'm also finished with my 1st 30 day challenge. I have noticed a difference and it has helped me to lose 8.8 so far.

I don't think I've posted here yet. I joined this group a couple of days ago and think it looks like a great team. I am an accountant and a mom of 2 boys. I do 90% of my workouts on the Wii between Wii fit and EA Active. I love it. It works so well when you work and have kids. I think challenges look great so looking forward to that as well. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Hey! I'm Tonka, 20 from MA. I don't use my Wii fit as much as I should, but I spend plenty of time doing strength exercises and cardio 6x a week. I'd like to get back into using the Wii, but it's very much a problem of finding time. Hoping this group will help to get me motivated. :)

Just joined this team today :) I'm Tanya 18 from UK, Hey all.

Only started getting back into the wii since EA sports active came out. I don't know what everyone else thinks but I thought wii fit was a bit of a disappointment.

Wish sp would list EA sports active aswell as wii fit in the exercise tracker!

What's everyone's favourite game atm then? emoticon
