The Wii the gym!!

That's the gym!! Remember when I posted on the "Wii before-and-after"? Well, now some gym in Canada felt it was a good idea to allow their clients to do some exercise while playing Wii Sports.

In Reuters:

"Studeo 55 in Vancouver has incorporated a Nintendo Wii workout station into circuit training where users can punch, run and jump with the system's movement-sensitive controller. Nathan Mellalieu, the owner of Studeo 55, said he decided to bring video games into a fitness environment after watching how much fun some children were having and, more importantly, seeing them sweating."

"All of our clients get great results, but the biggest result we see is the smile on their faces. People have to understand that fun is important."
