Get Fit With the Wii Fit Plus

There are so many ways to keep fit these days and people are always coming up with new and inventive ways to lose weight. Sometimes, however, the oldies are the best. Just add a modern twist and you are off.

Yoga has been around for centuries and is a favourite with many celebrities. The ancient Indian meditation has been used as a way to tone up for a long time, but has only just become popular with the general public. The exercise has been revolutionised in recent years by games consoles like the Wii. There are no limitations to the actual exercise and it can be done in your own home. The game gently guides you through the positions and gives you helpful tips and advice.

The Nintendo Wii has also revolutionised other exercises including: aerobic, muscle, yoga and balance. The Wii Fit Plus also imitates skateboarding and rhythm kung-fu exercises for the more adventurous out there. The phenomenon of the games console has changed the way we do a lot of things. Exercise being just one.

Here are some of the ways that you can get the most out of your Wii Fit Plus:

To play on the Wii Fit you will obviously need a Wii and the board that comes with the Wii Fit Plus. The board is used to help determine your centre of balance and correct it if it is off.

Choose a trainer, they can be either a man or a woman, if you change your mind you can switch them back at any point. They will be your task master, so it’s great that you can swap them.

You can set a target for your exercise session, so you can decide how many calories you want to burn off in a session.

The Wii saves the activities you do in the following categories: frequently, rarely or recently. So you can see which activities you have been neglecting or which ones you do the most often.

The ‘my routine’ feature lets you chose from individual yoga and strength work outs so you can compile your own targeted workout.

The Wii Fit plus routines are specifically designed to help you improve specific areas of your fitness. The section of the programme is divided into four sections: lifestyle, youth, health and form.

Another section of the programme allows you to chart your success, by giving you fit credits; you can track your progress and view how many calories you have burned each say.

Get Fit in 2011

Get fit for 2011


So you made a New Year’s resolution to get fitter in 2011? Well read on, it will certainly keep you on track and motivated. It doesn’t matter whether your aim is to run the London or New York marathon or just partake in some light yoga. As the saying goes ‘every little helps’.


Not everyone likes running, or even walking for that matter (me included). Likewise re swimming or anything to do with water. So how about trying some of these alternatives?


Hula hoping!!! Great exercise, fantastic for the aging creaky hips and all ages can get involved. I remember as a kid the hula hoop craze, boy was it fun!!! So why not try again, there is still a child in all of us and the sight of your granny and your niece both giving it socks is guaranteed to make anyone smile!


If that is not your thing how about swaying in the moonlight, swinging in the sunshine or stomp stomp stomp!!! Ballroom dancing– thanks to the success of Strictly Come Dancing, ballroom dancing is not just for the experts. Learning to ballroom dance ticks off lots of boxes – fitness, meeting new people, learning a new skill and posture.


But dancing covers many genres so you could always stry hip hop dance classes, ballet for adults, line dancing (yee haw) and of course Irish dancing (my favourite).


So go on, whether it’s a bit of fiddly de di, cha cha cha or clicking your heels, get your dancing shoes on!!!


What can expect from your new found fitness regime? Keep reading, it’s all good.


1. Regular activity has a number of proven, positive health effects, especially on heart health. Vigorous exercise strengthens the heart as a pump, making it a larger, more efficient muscle. Even moderate activity can boost HDL (‘good’) cholesterol, aid the circulatory system, and lower blood pressure and blood fats. All these effects translate into reduced risk for heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

2. Exercise can also offer other benefits, including strengthened muscles, increased flexibility, and stronger bones, which can help ward off the bone-thinning condition called osteoporosis.

3. Regular activity also promises mental-health benefits, like relieving stress and anxiety. It can help you sleep better and renew your energy. If exercise could be bottled, it would be a best-selling potion at the local pharmacy.

If exercise could be bottled, it would be a best-selling potion at the local pharmacy.

Surveys confirm the well-known fact that most people aren’t active enough and boy, do we pay for it. 12% of all deaths are due to a lack of regular exercise. So look around you, 1 out of the 10 people you see right now will die from lack of exercise – SCARY!!

So go for it, get up off your ass and make a difference to YOUR life. Care for YOUR heart, don’t break it.


And if you need any help, then look no further, we here in Homelink can help you get over that finishing line. By getting sponsorship for an sporting event, you get the added benefit that all your hard work and determination not only helped your own life but the lives of others. And we want to hear from you, your plans, your weekly goals, your training schedules, if you slipped a bit one week, how many friends you have roped in.

 Infrequent exercise can do more harm than good. Regularity is also important in resting, sleeping, and following a sensible diet.


 Training must be geared toward specific goals. You will become a better runner if your training emphasizes running Recovery after a hard day of training for a given component of fitness should be followed by an easier training day or rest day for that component and or muscle group, and make sure to stay hydrated. Another way to allow recovery is to switch the muscle groups exercised every other day, especially when training for strength and or muscle endurance.

After you get the “OK” from your doctor, try these 5 things to help you get started: Make the Choice to Start Exercising and Eating Right

Making the decision to do something provides a form of commitment you made to your self. Deciding that you need to change behavior creates new possibilities. When you say to your self “I need to get in shape”, it means something. You should be answering these questions in your mind: When can I work out? What exercises do I need to do?

Write Down What You Do

Get Fit For Free

For many individuals who wish to get fit, visiting a gym isn’t a possibility. This may either be due to the distance and time that it would take to travel their, the expense of a monthly gym membership, or maybe another sort of reason. In this post, I’ll be recommending some way in which you can get fit free of charge, or either for a very small financial outlay.

One of the better ways in which to get fit, and which costs nothing at all, is to run. Obviously, you will have to make sure you’ve got adequate footwear, and suitable pants and a top, but it costs absolutely nothing to run by itself. Plenty of people wish to jog at one pace when hoping to get fit, but I recommend you stuck to the basic HIT way of running. HIT is short for High Interval Training, and basically states that exercises needs to be performed at two different speeds. The first speed is a normal jog, which is relaxed, and which doesn’t tax the body an excessive amount. This will be performed for a set period of time, 1 minute for example. The next speed is a fast as you can possibly go sprint. This is again to be performed for a set period of time, but a shorter period than was taken to carry out the relaxed speed exercise, thirty seconds for instance. The idea behind HIT is you alternate between the two speeds and their times, for a set period of time, ten minutes for instance. Doing a minute of a relaxed jog, then a 30 second sprint, followed by the 1 minute jog etc, on and on until the 10 minutes are up. This works your body harder than jogging for 10 minutes at a consistent speed, and discovered in recent university research, your body still feels the effects and carries on working out even after you’ve finished performing the exercise, maximising your workout even more.

Other exercises to perform using this method and which also require no gym or money are cycling, swimming, performing sits ups, squats, burpees, star jumps and press ups. Team sports also come recommended, as there often more pleasurable than exercising on your own, nevertheless they may need more organisation.

How to Get Fit

Being fit is defined in many different ways. For some, it means being able to “fit” into the clothes they want to wear, some defines it as looking right for your age and height, and some defines it as being able to do some physical activities while still feeling healthy. We have heard about tips on being fit and staying healthy many times and we could have tried some of them but do not know which ones really work.

It really isn’t so easy to get fit, no wonder why we can see a number of things about diet and fitness in almost everywhere.  From magazines and newspapers to online ads and posts, we can see different tips on dieting or even newly discovered ways on how to stay healthy.

There may always be new educational and interesting ways and strategies that will come out, but here are the most effective and proven ways to help us stay fit and healthy:

1. Eat right

In the world we live today, we discover more ways to cook and produce food which isn’t really bad, but there are foods that contain substances which are not that healthy and if we don’t guard ourselves on what and how we eat, it may bring harm to our health.

2. Get enough rest

Being professional and in live with work is good, as one must really work hard to earn enough money for a living, but this does not mean that we have to forget giving ourselves enough time to rest and relax. Sleeping is one good way to let our body rest for a while, plus it helps our body become able to overcome strenuous activities. Taking a nap at least 5-10 minutes in time of pressure is also helpful to reduce stress.

3. Spend some time to enjoy life

We work hard in order to have money in order to survive and live. But it would be too boring to live and work but not enjoy life. Taking some time for a vacation does not only help you relax and get away from a stressful environment but it also helps you to have a refreshed and positive outlook in life plus giving you an opportunity to enjoy life, love and feel good about yourself.

4. Get a daily exercise.

Exercising gives us plenty of benefits. It helps us prevent or fight plenty of sicknesses such as heart disease, osteoporosis and many others. This is why it is not surprising to know that many companies in different states decide switch to fitness or body awareness type of business. Atlanta, for one, has several companies focusing on teaching different helpful exercises and ways to get fit. Atlanta pilates instructionis one that really works and is in demand for most customers as the routines and strategies aren’t so difficult to follow. Many other exercises and services like food healing, breath empowerment and many more are being used depending on what the customer wants.

There are still plenty of ways that will help us to get fit. Just a quick browse on the web and the options are countless. Atlanta pilatesis one of them but there can still be more. It’s just a matter of choosing a strategy that really fits.
