Wii Fitness also uses the Wii Balance Board for daily tests. These evaluate two key measures that a household can track via progress charts:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI): A weight evaluation based on a ratio of weight to height.
  • Wii Fitness Age: The Wii Fitness Age is measured by factoring the user’s BMI reading, testing the user’s center of gravity and conducting quick balance tests.
  • Wii Fitness includes more than 40 types of training activities designed to appeal to all members of a household. Training falls into four fitness categories.

1.) Aerobic Exercise: 10-minute exercises that are designed to get the heart pumping.

2.) Muscle Conditioning: Controlled motions using arms, legs and other body parts.

3.) Yoga Poses: Classic poses that focus on balance and stretching.

4.) Balance Games: Fun activities, such as ski jumping and heading soccer balls, that challenge the player’s overall body balance.
