The Best of Both Worlds!

The best of both worlds, for couch potatoes who love sitting around playing video games. You can enjoy your video games and get fit!

If you want to get fit but can't seem to pry yourself away from that video game, there's help for you. I know anyone who plays video games knows the "Wii" name, now "Wii" has fitness games designed to get you up off that couch and active again. This is a great way for someone who is out of shape to transition into a more traditional form of exercise.

The Wii offers several different interactive games that more than one player can enjoy, ever the "Seniors" group love them. They offer such things as bowling, have a league in your living room. They also have baseball, basketball, soccer, racquetball, boxing, dancing and many others to chose from. In addition to the Wii there are other systems that offer interactive games too.

This form of activity is equivalent to light jogging. You can also make it a social event and have your friends over, that way everybody can start getting healthy.

So let's get up and get movin' folks! (Hints for a Father's Day Gift or two)

Blessings for a Glorious Day!


  1. Hi Susie,

    Hats off to the creators of Wii! It's a great way to get gamers on their feet and moving about. I think it's great for Seniors, too. You can have a bowling tournament right in your livingroom! :-)

    Many Blessings....

  3. Hi Roxanne,

    I think Wii is a great invention, nothing more entertaining than watching your 12 year old son and his 74 year old grandfather in a heated competition, great for both of them.

    God Bless and have a great night,
