anyone do xbox or wii fitness games?

We recently took my boys xbox and wii and put it in our family/living room.  I bought dance central 1 & 2.  Both have a fitness mode.  I get bored on all exercise videos etc.  I did the dance central 20 minute workout(8) songs and I was ready to do another workout after that!(they had a 10 minute 4 song one)  it was FUN!!!!  It tells you how long u workout, how good u do the moves

Stupid phone!!!! Lol and it also tells u how many calories u burn.  It also has easy, medium, hard levels and it shows u how to do the moves.  And its low impact which I have to do because of my hip back and ankle issues.  Anyway just an idea for those who bore easily of exercise.  I even had hubby doing it. Lol

oh that sounds really awesome!!!  A great way to work out.  My husband and I were always the parents that said we would never own one of those because we didn't want our kids growing up around them.  The wii sounds like it would encourage them to exercise - who knows we might change our minds one day :)

also i have the wii fit very boring! i also have another workout one for the wii and its just totally irritating cause the controller makes it mess up and it stops the exercise

I want the zumba too but they were out. My mil has wii fit and it looked dull. I want to get some of the kinect sports games.  My boys love football baseball soccer and it will also  get dh off his butt cuz the kids love dad to play too!! Lol For a long time we were also the parents who wouldnt buy xbox or wii but since they have action games that they have to move we said ok. I am very blessed though.  Both my boys would rather be outside on a bike or swingset or digging in the dirt.  They like xbox and wii for times when weather or darkness keeps them in so they are not couch potatoes and we limit tv and game time.  My goal is to work out every other day.  If time permits I will work out everyday when I can.  I was just happy I worked out for 30 minutes without being bored to death!

I play Just Dance on the Wii sometimes and my hubby loves watching me because he laughs his butt off. It really does provide lots of exercise. And I dont care about looking like a dork :)

I have the wii fit, but only play maybe play 3 of the games on there. I want to get the just dance or some kind of game like that. Although I cannot dance to save my life, it looks like a blast!
