Fit For Summer: Wii Style

This week's topic for the "Summer Blogger Challenge" is "Fit For Summer". Because I've already written two posts about the fitness routine that I do and the apps that I use (here and here) I was wondering throughout the week what I could do for this post (without repeating myself). I decided to focus on some Wii games that can help with fitness and get you active, without even leaving the house.

Wii Sports
I'm sure this game comes with the Wii! This has kept my family entertained for hours and it's great exercise (especially the boxing and the tennis!) My grandparents have even played it at Christmas time - it's fun for any age and there's plenty to choose from.

Wii Fit
This used to be one of my favourites! It's really useful if you want to keep track of your weight loss as it tells you your weight when you step onto the board. You can then choose from different muscle exercises, yoga poses and games to play in order to improve your physique (my favourites are the ski jump, the aerobics and the hula hoop!)

Zumba Fitness
I find this game keeps you very active as it involves jumping about and shaking your hips! A belt was included with this, which you put your Wii remote in so you don't have to hold it! There's different dances involving Latin music and over 30 routines to choose from. Zumba is a big thing amongst women, for a reason - it's fun and keeps you fit!

Michael Jackson The Experience
I'm a big fan of Michael Jackson so I was really excited when I got this game. You can dance to a number of his hits, following the routine and earning stars. It's great fun to play at parties and it's a good laugh watching your friends attempt the dance moves!

Just Dance 2 & 4
I loved the second one so much that I had to buy the newest one! When my friends come round, we always end up on this (and they go home knackered) and we have a good laugh! You can go solo, dance together, or battle each other to hits from the past and present. It leaves you breathless and tired (which only means you're improving your fitness each time you play!)

What's your favourite Wii game to play, that keeps you fit?

Leave your links below to your challenge post for this week - I'd love to read!
