Step 1: Become a Mii Get Wii Fit and follow the directions to set up a Mii, a virtual alter ego that will keep track of your fitness stats and chart your progress. Step 2: Go for the aerobics Focus on the aerobic activities. Yoga and balance games will help you get fit, and strength training will build muscles that burn calories more efficiently, but aerobic exercises are the most direct route to weight loss. Step 3: Start dancing Start boogying to "Dance Dance Revolution:" Research shows that people burn about 172 calories per half hour on light mode, 201 on standard, and 243 on difficult. Tip Find a dance partner to challenge to a daily virtual dance-off. Step 4: Get sporty If dancing is not your thing, try Wii Sports. One study found that Wii boxing burned an impressive 216 calories per 30 minutes. Tennis came next, at 159 calories per half hour, followed by baseball, at 135 calories for every 30 minutes of play. Tip Golf burned the fewest calories—93 per half hour—followed by bowling, at 117 calories per 30 minutes. Step 5: Get into a routine Type the words "Wii weight loss program" into a search engine; you'll find regimens devised by users who have successfully lost weight using their Wii. Step 6: Play often Play every day if you can. Because Wii activities burn fewer calories than their real-life counterparts, you'll need to play more often to get results. Did You Know? One couple lost a combined 117 pounds grooving to "Dance Dance Revolution."
