The game is extremely fun and the balance board is super easy to set up. The mini games are short, but fun. They are highly competitive and adictive. It'll have your kids fighting to be next to play.
I think if you have a Wii already and are planning on keeping it, then this is a nice addition. It weighs you,gives your Body Mass Index. It has many games to play,some are really fun. My only problem is that the Wii does not have good graphics nor does it even offer true HD.(best it can do is 480p) It is really graphics wise not much better than the Game Cube. However Nintendo has the best games for kids, I just think Nintendo needs a new console that is up with the PS3 and XBOX 360. In short if you already own a Wii then get this and it will get you off the couch. If you do not own Wii then maybe PS3 Move seems like it will be better.
I had ordered the Wii Fit Plus because it was difficult sometimes to get out and exercise due to weather, etc. This is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It has various exercises from Yoga to Aerobics and everything in between. You choose your own difficulty level and there are time when it will choose it for you based on how well you are doing. It makes doing exercises easier because you have something to watch instead of just staring out into space.
Wii Fit plus is really one of the best Wii products on the market. It takes a serious workout to a fun level and you actually look forward to exercise. It is set up in such a way that almost any age group can participate in a nice, easy or hard workout.
The balance board allows you to keep track of your calories, type of exercise and amount of time spent, plus weighs you when you step on. It scolds you if you miss a lot of days and encourages you when you do exercise. Best way to describe it..FUN and Exercise at the same time.
I bought this for christmas, and I can say this is an excellent way to workout. The game dvd give you set by set instructions on working out. The board is strong and easy to blance on it. I this purchase was worth buying. I would recommend this to anyone.
just wanted to say thanks Buy.com,i order my wii last 08/19/11 & i rcvd my order on 08/29/2011.i have been waiting to have a wii since my old one was stolen when they rob our old apartment.sad but some people do things that u would not beleived they do but now im happy coz i have a new one that i can do my excersise everyday at home,by the way its very good customer service that i recieved from you you guys & over the phone,im sure that i will order again next time.
The 'plus' game improves on the original by adding more content. It's exercise in disguise of an interactive game. It's fun not only to play but also to watch other people play. The things it has you do look funny, don't feel embarrassed though it's all in good fun. Even my young nieces were able to play the games so the board is quite sensitive.
It comes with extender feet for the board to help raise it up off the ground if you have thick carpeting. Another nice things about this is the fact that it keeps track of how many calories you've burned. I've actually started sweating a few times while playing some of the games.
After years of wanting a Wii, we finally got one! And, of course, like any overly-excited newbie, I couldn't wait to get the new WiiFit (WiiFit Plus). I picked it up at midnight, with the Balance Board. (TIP: if ur buying from brick-and-mortar stores, call ahead, it took me an hour to convince them that it was ok to sell it to me, and it was already 12:30a!)
I have to say it is quite pricy and can be picky when you try to sync it to the wii. It is not easy to set up but once it is set up, it is great- for some people. I found I didnt use mine as much as I thought I would, but I use it enough to not make it worth it to return it. It is still a great buy though, and I would still recomend it to anyone, but all people and the ways they may uise the wii balance board may differ. So how you are in this situation affects it.
Wii Fit Plus (With Balance Board) is a MUST have for the health nut enthusiast! It provides a great work out experience and has a BUNCH of different Wii games to work out too! Best of all, WEIGHT LOSS!!! I have just started using this a few days ago myself, but I have a friend that owns one and she lost 25lbs. on it in a matter of a few months! I'd say THAT is worth the price alone, but I love it for the fact that in a few short days, I already feel healthier! Happy Shopping and God Bless!
It can be hard to stay active when exercising can be so boring and repetitive. This device thankfully makes it fun and enjoyable for everyone in the family. It's nice that you can keep a profile for each person as well. It keeps track of your stats and weight lost to show you in an easy to read chart. There are plenty of games to play that work different parts of your body. Anything from a ski jump to real push-ups. I'd also mention this is perfect for winter months when it's even harder to exercise.

Wii Fit attracted millions of new players to the world of video games. Now Wii Fit Plus offers a range of new features and enhancements to help players reinvigorate their workouts, along with exercises and balance games designed to keep them fun. Players will find a new dimension to the Wii Fit experience as they easily set their own customized workout routines, or choose 20-, 30- or 40-minute workouts based on how much time they have available.
Users will also be able to choose from specialized workout routines that focus on all-around individual personal fitness goals or certain target areas. And with the addition of activities like Skateboarding and Rhythm Kung Fu, players will be using the Wii Balance Board accessory in a variety of new and fun ways.
As with the original Wii Fit release, Wii Fit Plus is designed, as its name implies, to improve the user's fitness. The game contains a large number of activities that fall into a variety of categories, including: yoga, aerobics, strength training and balance games. With all but a few exceptions, which utilize variations on a standard Wii Remote configuration, all activities utilize the Wii Balance Board (not included, but available with the Wii Fit Plus Balance Board Bundle), either alone or configured with either a Wii Remote alone or the Wii Remote and nunchuck. The Balance Board, like any other Wii controller acts as a motion/pressure sensing device wirelessly synched to your Wii and replicating your body's movements. Each controller employed occupies one of the Wii's four wireless inputs, together mapping the reference points needed to recreate most full body motions on screen. Although this limits the majority of the activities to a single player orientation, various activities throughout the game support up to eight players in alternating play.
Users can input the amount of time they want to spend on their workouts or select an area for personal improvement, and Wii Fit Plus will suggest a number of diverse activities for them.
For the first time, users can mix and match which strength and yoga activities they prefer on a given day. The seamless exercise flows make it easier than ever for users to maintain their daily workout routines.
Users might be asked to run an obstacle course across a series of platforms, zoom across a beach on a Segway x2 Personal Transporter or flap their arms to help their hilarious chicken-suited characters aim for targets.
The range of games and customization options will make players want to play every day. They¿ll be having so much fun that their workouts will seem to fly by in no time at all.
