What are you willing to try to stay fit?

Wii Fit Philippines

Last month I wrote about the Nike+ running kit and how it may encourage you to stay fit. Today, it’s about the Wii Fit pack exclusively for the Nintendo Wii. Though its not out for the rest of the world to see, its currently sold more than a million units in Japan only.

This got me thinking really – what is the price we are willing to pay to stay fit? Or better yet, what are we willing to do to seem like we’re staying fit? There are lots of cheaper ways to do this but I truly feel that fitness can surely feed on our vanity. Not that I’m complaining. Probably order one of those Wii Fit devices when it comes out in Q2. Nintendo claims that in the future, you will be able to use the WiiConnect24 to interface with the Wii’s yoga mat and send data to your fitness instructor.

Years before I bought a mountain bike. It was this nice shimano bike. I liked it a lot and used it as well. Then I one day I sold it because there was an emergency and needed some cash. So I started taking walking and rambling as a daily exercise. Gadgets that I used while walking include an digital music player and cameras. Vanity? I dont know. I just enjoy doing it.

I’m waiting for the US version of Wii fit too! As far as vanity goes, I’d still consider this one more as a game than a routine. The same way I consider Wii sports as a game rather than sports (eventhough I sweat a lot playing Tennis). I buy these games for fun, not because I wanted to have them all. 🙂

I think everyone who thinks the wii will make them fit should be dragged out into the street to play. Go to the gym, play basketball, go walking or something! We spend enough of our time in front of tv and computer screens!
