It’s been dubbed one of the most successful video games of all time, and now the Wii Fit is down to £51.96 on the Hut. So now that it’s far too cold to be exercising out doors as winter is almost upon us – plus gym memberships are about the first thing everyone sacrificed to the economic recession – it’s all about getting into shape the Wii fit way. However do bear in mind regarding this deal that you need to enter the code Wii10 prior to checking out in order to bring the price down from £57.73 to £51.96.
There is no doubt that striving to fit etc is a very good thing, but, with regard to the Wii fit, just remember that it can be quite a cruel game, especially when you’re getting weighed by that board. The Wii Fit uses the good old BMI (Body Mass Index) to calculate your weight and, if you are over weight, will tell you by how much – and actually create a bloated little avatar to represent you (charming!).
The problem with BMI is that it is very inconsistent – in fact, after the decision of an American health corperation who moved the BMI ‘normal’ category down from 27 to 25, millions of people were made obese overnight! But whether you believe in BMI or not, Wii Fit can make you very paranoid. I’ve even heard of children who look perfectly in proportion being told they are overweight and being pretty devastated as a result. So as a Christmas present this one can be a bit of a double edged sword.
