After recently covering the Cyberbike title for the Wii, we were thinking it was time to look at the other weight loss games for the Wii and roundup the top ten. In some of our picks the fitness goal is explicit, but not always. Our focus was on games that could promote weight loss whether through strength training or the cardio that happens while dancing up a sweat.
While some of the choices below are obvious (Wii Fit Plus anyone?), like we said above the jump, not all of our picks are to be found in the "heath and fitness" section. Some titles like Samba de Amigo and Punch-Out can offer a great workout simply through the cardio that happens during the game play. Of course we could not forget Dance Dance Revolution the game that really started getting people off the couch and moving. Here are our top ten picks for helping you work off those holiday treats...
- Golds Gym Cardio Workout
- Wii Fit Plus
- EA Sports Active
- We Cheer 2
- Samba de Amigo
- My Fitness Coach
- Wii Sports Resort
- Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games
- Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 3
Any personal opinions out there of which Wii fitness games have helped you stay in shape or shed some extra pounds?
