Overall a great product! Keeps you coming back for more! Effective and fun!
The overall product is very well put together, feels like an actual quality piece of equipment, and works quite well.
I bought this Wii Fit Plus to help with my health issues and to get the little one in a healthier routine as well. I wanted to have fun doing some exercise an not feel like a complete goober doing so. This definitely delivers!
I haven't used any other similar products, but I can tell you the pros and cons of this one.
+Fun (tons of games, exercises, and multiplayer capable)
+Effective (definitely keeps you moving and focused)
+Informative (shows calories used, weight, BMI, graphs, etc.)
+Beats going to ANY gym
+There are tons of accessories for it (usable ones, not just for show). lol
+Overall a very fun way to work out
-Balance is everything for this product. So, for those who can't stand on one leg for long (i.e. young children, elderly, or otherwise impaired), this isn't the product for you.
-Can't use on a thicker carpeted floor. Won't work right.
-Battery operated. So, it can die in the middle of a routine.
-Isn't very soft on bare feet. Perhaps an aftermarket cover would help.
Hopefully I offered some insight on this product! Overall, I would give it an 8/10 rating. It is fun, keeps you coming back for more, teaches you on how to improve your current lifestyle, and is overall a great way to keep focused on your healthy living goals. With a weight loss and BMI index goal, you can keep track of how close you are to your goal.Read full review...
An Invaluable Tool In Therapy When Our Schedule and Know How Was Limited
Recommended to me by a client I care for, who's physical therapist uses it in his practice, I bought this for the wii fit to start getting exercise and for my husband who had a double spinal fusion in January, has fibromyalgia, etc. and needs to improve in many areas for obvious health reasons.
Once we got it and hooked it up it was soon obvious that it was much more than we had expected. The exercises and routines are so accurate and right on with what the body needs. It allows us to set up routines according to what works for each of us and, for what our individual bodies need. Gives accurate weight if you want to see it, measures body mass and allows you to do the body test each time you begin to determine where you are and what you need to work on to reach the goals you set and save in the system.

Great value. Works great even for guys!
I bought this product to loose about 80 lbs. I'm a 27 yr old male who works 70+ hours a week 7 days a week. So I needed something at home that would still give me that gym feeling. This went above and beyond my expectations. The workouts are great , the BMI/Weight tracker is extremely accurate.
I recommend this to anyone trying to loose weight and still get that at gym feeling and burn. Make sure you install the Wii Fit Plus Channel on your Wii as well. There you can add your entire family's profiles, including your dogs/cats. I have both my dogs on there, this way I can keep track of their weight as well. Make sure they're getting plenty of exercise and not too much food intake.Read full review...
I have a love/hate relationship with my Wii Fit Plus that changes daily!
We've been enjoying our Wii for almost a year, but had gotten lazy with some of the sports and were playing several of them while sitting down. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that you're not getting much benefit from doing that. I had heard about some of the fun exercises/activities that came with the Wii Fit Balance Board and I was interested in checking it out. It has definitely gotten us back on our feet and we're now using our Wii more than ever. We can see a slow improvement in our overall balance and stability on our feet. It hasn't done anything to change our weight or strength, but that's probably more because we don't work all that hard at it. Our overall experience in using the Wii with the Balance Board and Wii Fit Plus has been positive. Sometimes I hate the comments of the little cartoon B.B, and I have to grit my teeth. Some days the games are fun and some days it's just kind of tedious, but in the interest of fitness, we persevere. It has been a good addition to our Wii life.Read full review...
Best Wii accesory!
This item is a must have accessory for the Wii. Will also work for with the new Wii U, but a new version of Wii fit U should be out in the first quarter of next. The Wii fit Plus comes with the same balance board as Wii fit, but it has the Wii fit Plus game. The Will fit Plus game has additional features. I do not think the silicon skins being sold on Ebay are necessary because the board itself has a non skid surface. However, the board is white and may discolor easily. Like all Wii controllers, it uses AA batteries, which can become expensive. I would recommend a rechargeable battery pack. Some battery packs extend beyond the base of the board. I would look for one that fits inside the original compartment because aerobic excises could cause the larger batteries to touch the floor and become loose. Also, I would be weary of buying batteries on Ebay because even if they are NIB, they could have been sitting on the shelf for a while. All batteries have a limited shelf life.Read full review...
Kind of amazing
WiiFit allows me to do yoga without having to go to a class. And there are strength, aerobics and balance exercises, too.

The GREATEST workout machine to date!
It is a brilliant device to get you moving! I've been on it almost every day since the first of the year and when I miss a day? I feel guilty & lazy! The wii fit plus congratulates me for my consistency. There are so many options! The games & exercises will advance as you advance and there is a place to go to for calorie counts, food equivalents, etc. Everything you should need in ONE DEVICE! You can have the wii set up a regimen for you or set one up yourself. I take the advice of the wii b/c at this point I believe it knows better what I need than I do. Workouts to yoga, games and balance - I am walking and standing differently since beginning the wii fit plus. I did not realize that I did not walk or stand correctly! I'm over 50 and this is the best exercise buy I have ever purchased! It is a brilliant piece of work. My workouts are safe, I am home (which is especially good for those of us who feel too uncomfortable to go to the gym). I cannot extoll enough praise for this product! Every family should own one. From young to old, everyone can benefit - w/o leaving home! It's GREAT!Read full review...
As with any fitness system, you get out of it what you put in to it!
This Wii Fit Plus was purchsed for my wife to aide in her goal to achieve weight loss. So far, it has been great for her, and she has lost 20 lbs in the first month! She has been having a great experience with it...I have even been using it some, and find the strength training activities to be beneficial. As long as you push yourself, you will see results. No slacking!!!
Only a couple of things to keep in mind when considering the purchase of this: 1) get the riser kit for the board. The workouts/exercises would be much better if there was a higher platform to step up on. Buy the riser kit and get the most out of your workouts. 2) purchasing the 2lb or heavier handweights for the activities will also aide in the workouts. These two added features make an enormous difference! One other thing to consider would be a wireless nunchuck for the boxing routines. It eliminates the possibility of having the controller and the nunchuck too close together and banging them against each other. Just a thought...
Overall, the experience has been fantastic, and we would recommend this to anyone that is looking to loose some weight and/or stay in shape.Read full review...
Fun way to lose weight and chart your progress.
Great product. I love the graph and the body workout. It is easy to use and I am seeing results already. A friend of mine got one for Christmas and has lost seven pounds so far. It is a very easy routine. Just use it for ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes at night. It does become fun and so you'll find yourself on it for a longer time then first planned. A very fun way to break up the day and get some exercise in.Read full review...
