    Playing Sports in Your Living Room

    Wouldn't it be great if you could get out and play tennis or another sport on a regular basis?  Although we may enjoy doing such things, getting out and doing them may be a difficult task.  All that is now changing, however, because there are some ways that we can now get physically fit at home and it won't even seem like any effort at all.  The best way for you to be able to do this is by using the Nintendo Wii, a game console that is not only a lot of fun to play, it can help you to stay in shape in a number of different ways.

    If you have never seen this particular game console in action, it is a very interesting thing to see.  Instead of sitting on the couch and holding a controller in your hand, you are actually using a controller that has gyroscopes on the inside.  You will have to mimic certain movements such as those used in bowling, tennis or golf in order to actually play the game on your television screen.  Some of the games that come with the Nintendo are amazingly active and can help you lose weight while you are enjoying a fun activity.

    One of the newest games that has come out for the Nintendo Wii is the Wii play.  This game is amazing for helping people lose weight because it offers a variety of different balance games, strength exercises, yoga and aerobics for you to do.  The best part about this is that it is so much fun while you're doing it that it almost seems effortless.  Somebody that I know who absolutely hates to exercise uses this game for an hour every day and is currently losing weight as a result.

    So the next time that somebody tells you that video games are ruining today's youth, think about the Nintendo Wii.  Instead of spending your money on an expensive piece of exercise equipment that will end up not getting used, try the Nintendo instead.  Not only will you spend less on it, you will tend to want to use it more often.  It offers a family-friendly variety of games that help us to be active in our mind and body.  As far as exercise equipment goes, it is one of the most effortless and enjoyable ones that has come along in quite some time.

      I think the Wii is a good idea of at least address the issue of weight & low activity, especially for kids.  At least it is related directly to things they could do outside
