This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much for stopping by! The winner is Chastidy. Congrats!
If you’ve followed my blog, then you know that I used the Wii Fit to lose the baby weight before I got pregnant with our baby girl. In fact, I now realize that those months when I felt like I wasn’t making any progress, were due to the fact that my body was creating a person! Hehe! I honestly think that the Wii Fit was and is an incredible innovation with regards to gaming and fitness. Children (and adults) no longer have to sit on the couch, controls in hand, peeled to a screen. I love the way the Wii Fit encourages movement, balance, and commitment to change.
Many of you may have heard that Nintendo has launched an updated version of the Wii Fit, called the Wii Fit Plus. I can’t say I have personal experience with the updated version, however, the company has expanded on the original software to include new exercises and tools to personalize your fitness routine. I’m hoping to upgrade mine soon (It’s around $20).
In addition, Jillian Michaels’ new Wii game “Fitness Ultimatum 2010” was just released for both the Wii and DS. To celebrate, Sports Authority has teamed up with Nintendo to create a new way to experience fitness gaming. On Thursday, November 19 (as in TOMORROW!), you can visit their Torrance, California store with a celebratory launch. Here is a bit more information about how Sports Authority is collaborating withNintendo to create this experience:
To help customers get to know the Wii better, Sports Authority will create a “We know fit. We know fun.” experience at 102 of their stores. Stores will feature a dedicated area with a demo unit and knowledgeable trainers to help customers try the Wii and Wii Fit Plus before they buy.
Here are the details of the event:
Thursday, Nov. 19
Sports Authority store in Torrance (located at 3610 Torrance Blvd.), CA (just outside of Los Angeles, CA)
Event starts at 9:30 a.m. and runs until mid-day
