Why might these Wii Fit Workout Accessories come in useful for your Nintendo Wii-focussed fitness regime? Well let’s see if this sounds familiar…
It’s just after New Year and you decide to get rid of some excess poundage and get trim for summer. You heard about the Wii Fit and decided to spend some money and shed some unwanted weight while having fun. You set it all up and followed your new fitness guru to the letter. But alas, your holiday weight just did not shift. So you packed it all away and considered going for a jog instead…
We’re sure that this is the case for literally thousands of people as the Wii Fit did not really offer anything that would really get your heart rate up. It was all a little too easy. So in steps the guys at Everlast with this new take on gaming accessories. They have brought out two new accessories directly aimed at people who own a Wii Fit, and who actually want to get fit.
The first accessories are the Wii Weights and these essentially turn your Wii Remotes into dumbbells. They do this by adding two balanced weights to each end of your remote that do not interfere with the controllers’ buttons, strap and IR function.
This makes the remote weigh about 1kg and can really make a difference to the upper body exercise. They are designed to tightly grip the remote and really make a convincing dumbbell shape once attached.
The second accessory is the Wii Stepper. This fits securely to the bottom of the Wii Balance Board and adds 3 inches to its height. This makes the balance bored allot more like something you would find in a step aerobics class. The benefits here should not need to be explained, needless to say stepping on and off the balance board with the Wii Stepper fitted is a much more cardio stressful task than it was before.
Both these Wii Fit Workout Accessories are well designed and are compatible with most of the Wii games aimed at getting you fit (Wii Fit, EA Sports Active, Golds Gym Cardio, Jillian Mitchels Fitness Ultimatum 2009).
So make your Wii Fit actually work better with the addition of these two great fitness accessories and make your workouts more productive.
