Some dude videotaped his half-dressed girlfriend shaking her booty in the privacy of their living room while playing the Wii Fit hula-hoop game. The douchebag posted the clip on the net, titled it "Why Every Guy Should Buy Their Girlfriend Wii Fit," and the vid went viral in no time. What a gent. Naturally, some smart-ass chick (love her!) made a similar vid for all us ladies to sit back and enjoy. Or try to enjoy.
My 30 day Wi Fit Fitness Challenge is fast approaching the home stretch, and I couldn't be happier with the results! In just three weeks, I'm down four pounds, which may not seem like a lot, but it's pretty awesome considering I stopped my usual routine of going to the gym and didn't change my eating habits. Although I might miss my goal of losing eight pounds, I think losing any inches (and getting closer to a healthier BMI) is a pretty good testament that the Wii Fit really does work.
I spent a ton of time getting down with Rhythm Boxing, and increased my aerobic fitness (surely at the dismay of my downstairs neighbors) with the Free Run this week. I'm not so enthused about jogging in the real world, but when it comes to running with Wii Fit, I'm a calorie burner! Who knew!? To hear more about why I'm so into the Free Runs, and get a few more tips on how to fire up your Wii Fit workouts, just read more
I'm absolutely hooked on my Wii Fit, and I'm not ashamed to say it. Although I have yet to get a kick-butt aerobic workout like I do at my gym during cardio kickboxing, I'm finding myself to be more flexible than ever — plus, I think I even stand up straighter! My dominant workouts this week were yoga (I can't believe how much I'm loving it) and running. Taking on the Island Run for the first time was really fun, since I got to check out the lay of the virtual land (which is pretty sweet, by the way).
Plus, once you're finished with your jaunt that's worth 10 minutes in your Wii Fit Bank, you'll surely need that sweat towel (especially if you use my tip from last week to hold full water bottles or weights in your hands while you're running)!
And what was the nicest surprise I discovered? To find out just read more
With my first week of the Wii Fit Fitness Challenge under my belt, I've discovered some tricks to get the most out of your workouts with your virtual trainer. But since Wii Fit is so easy to use and follow along with, you really won't have any trouble catching on right away and burning off that fro-yo you had for lunch!
I'm really excited about the new challenges I have been unlocking every day, and hope that some of you who were lucky enough to get your hands on the Wii Fit can participate and share your tips with us as well! Check out my handy Wii Fit tips in the slideshow!
So far, me and the Wii Fit are good pals. He knows how to make me laugh, how to sweat, and shows me what I'm made of — we're a good pair. This week, although a few days short of a full seven days of dissecting WF, it was a good one. I can tell from the soreness in my hips and abs that the time put into perfecting my Hula Hooping skills is paying off. Additionally, I've found that my endless tree and warrior poses are indeed helping my flexibility! Who knew that in the first week I could feel this many results off of a game.
At first, I thought that I may get bored with the same games every day, but thankfully, every ten minutes you put in on the Wii Fit, opens up a new activity. And every time you repeat an activity, a new difficulty level challenges you for a better, longer, or harder workout. Last night I ran the moderate trail on my run and actually broke a bit of a sweat! No kidding! Although there's been no change yet to my BMI, I did have some fun and made a few technical notes along the way that may help you in your Wii Fitness journey. To find out what they are, read more
Well, ever since the Nintendo Wii Fit landed on our doorstep, they've been keeping busy over at geeksugar, planning a 30 Day Fitness Test and letting the whole Sugar team in on the hula hooping, skiing, and tightrope walking fun! But, it seems like us humans aren't the only ones testing out the new balance board. Do you recognize this lil guy? We met him last week as our latest office pet! Samson the smooshy decided that he wanted to take after his geek loving mom, LilPeaPod (of Kindle cake-creating fame) and get his fingers on the pulse . . . umm, paws on the pulse . . . to figure out all the hype surrounding this new game. I mean he looks pretty adoro, but do you think this pooch is on his way to start a canine exergaming craze? Check him out in action when you read more

As you know, we were so excited to finally receive our Wii Fit last week. As with any other shiny and new toy, we couldn't wait to take it for a test drive. As you'll see below, a geeksugar test drive turned into a fullblown Sugar HQ Wii Fit party! Oooh feel the burn. . .
Yesterday, I hit the gym. . .I mean, the Wii Fit for a taste of what's to come in my 30 day Wii Fit Fitness Test. Although I wasn't expecting to break a sweat, I did have a nice dewy glow after trying out a few of the Wii Fit's features. My fave so far? Hula Hooping!
You may be wondering what rules I'll be setting for myself this month as I begin the 30 day Wii Fit Fitness Test. They are simple, but I can promise that I'll stick to them to give you the most accurate results possible. I'll even stop hitting the gym and make Wii Fit my only source of exercise for a full month! Am I scared? No. Cause even if I don't lose a pound, I'm sure I'll have a blast anyway.

I was overjoyed when I walked into the office this morning to find a big rectangular box sitting on my desk just begging to be opened. Oh yes my friends, it's the Wii Fit! I'm lucky enough to get an advance taste of the exergaming monster and bring you the inside scoop on all the posing, toning, and reflex gaming goods. Not only am I looking forward to a more relaxed state of mind with yoga, but having some child-like fun with hula hooping, too!
And to truly test out the power of Wii Fit, I'll be conducting my own experimental 30 Day Fitness Journal, and share my results with all of you right here on geeksugar. Just like what Mickey DeLorenzo did for Wii Sports, I will do for Wii Fit. And it won't just be me dissecting the newest Wii title— FitSugar is getting in on the fun and will be bringing you some juicy Wii Fit findings of her own. So stay tuned for more Wii Fit madness!
