Create a Profile:
Before you jump into doing exercises and activities, you'll start by
creating your own profile. Choose a Mii, enter your height and age
information, and do a few quick tests:
BMI Check: BMI, or Body Mass Index, is a measure of body fat based on
height and weight that is the standard used by agencies such as the
World Health Organization and the National Institute of Health. To
check your BMI, you'll enter your height then stand on the Wii Balance
Board and let it read your weight.
Wii Fit Age: After you've checked your BMI, you'll do a basic balance
test and find out your current Wii Fit Age. This basic balance test
measures how well you can control your left and right balance. Based
on the results, you'll be assigned a Wii Fit Age.
Wii Fit features four main categories to choose from: Strength
Training, Aerobics, Yoga and Balance Games. As you spend time
exercising, you'll earn Fit Credits that unlock additional exercises
and activities within these categories. Wii Fit also tracks the
activities you do the most and puts them into the Favorites category.
Strength Training: Put your strength to the test with muscle-toning
exercises like Single Leg Extension, Sideways Leg Lift, Arm and Leg
Lift, Single-Arm Stand, Torso Twists, Rowing Squat, Single Leg Twist,
Lunge, Push-Up and Side Plank, Jackknife, Plank and Tricep Extension.
Challenges include Push-Up Challenge, Plank Challenge and Jackknife
Aerobics: Get your heart pumping with fun, interactive Aerobic
exercises like Hula Hoop®, Basic Step, Basic Run, Super Hula Hoop,
Advanced Step, 2-P Run, Rhythm Boxing, Free Step and Free Run.
Yoga: Work on your balance and flexibility with Yoga poses and
activities like Deep Breathing, Half-Moon, Dance, Cobra, Bridge,
Spinal Twist, Shoulder Stand, Warrior, Tree, Sun Salutation, Standing
Knee, Palm Tree, Chair, Triangle and Downward-Facing Dog.
Balance Games: Get into the action with fun, balanced-based games like
Soccer Heading, Ski Slalom, Ski Jump, Table Tilt, Tightrope Walk,
Balance Bubble, Penguin Slide, Snowboard Slalom and Lotus Focus.
Keep tabs on your daily progress with easy-to-understand graphs and
charts. Using your personal profile, you can set goals, view a graph
of your BMI results over time, see how many Fit Credits you've earned,
check your Wii Fit Age and even enter exercise time you've done
outside of Wii Fit. It's all about coming back and exercising a little
every day, and the personal profile makes tracking your daily progress
simple and easy.
You can quickly check your Wii Fit Age and BMI without even putting
the game in the console by going directly to the Wii Fit Channel.
Up to eight family members can create their own profiles in Wii Fit.
On the profile-selection screen, everyone in the family can see each
other's recent BMI progress and Fit Credit total. This will allow
families to have a friendly competition to exercise and get fit.
