The Wii Sports ExperimentTue, Jan 16, 2007
. “Six weeks ago, I began what has become a huge obsession of mine. It is called the “Wii Sports Experiment” I outlined a 6 week game plan for myself, the idea being that I would continue ALL normal activity and eating habits, and simply add 30 minutes of Wii Sports to my day. For the past month and a half, I’ve stuck to these guidelines very strictly.” The condensed version is that he lost 9 pounds and 2% of his body fat by playing the games, and he plans to stay on it even though the experiment is over. This confirms what I have heard from friends who’ve played Wii; you can get a workout from it. While I always knew I would someday soon buy a Wii as the step up from our beloved, purple Gamecube, now I have a date, next month for my birthday. That we can play all the games that I, my wife and the kiddos
like love is just gravy as we transition over to the new Wii games. Who knows, perhaps I’ll try out the 6 week plan myself.
