Getting Healthy with the Wii

So you made a resolution to excercise more, or maybe to join a gym, and most certainly to lose some of the extra weight you packed on but you have yet to make good on any of it and it’s not looking like it is going to happen either. Well Mickey DeLorenzo has a work-out routine for you that can be done in the comfort of your own home right in front of your television, and he’s not talking bow tie or RIchard Simmons either. Instead Mickey claims he has lost nine pounds playing video games.

Not just any video games mind you but instead Wii Sports for the Nintendo Wii. The Nintendo Wii is the next generation video gaming console from Nintendo (the makers of such classics as Mario, Metroid and Zelda) and it features a new take on gaming. The Wii-mote uses motion sensing and DeLorenzo has molded a work-out routine to utilize these features. Of course it does involve a little more than sitting on your couch and waving your arm but I can honestly say that the Wii is a blast and if you can find one it is worth the buy and for $250 it’s cheaper than some year long gym memberships.

Check out DeLorenzo’s blog where he details his endevors here or check out the Gamespot review of Wii Sports.
