Once you've been analyzed and humiliated, the system asks you to set some goals for working your way to a BMI of 22. The goals are totally up to you so we set ours for losing 3 pounds in 2 weeks and moved on to the training program so we could get started shedding those pounds. We were asked to select a personal trainer, either male or female. We both chose the female. She is very encouraging and tolerant of the fact that we are out of shape and somewhat uncoordinated. She sometimes praises us even when we've done a terrible job of completing the training tasks, however, there was an instance when she asked if I trip over my feet when I walk. Very funny. It's true that I ranked as "unbalanced" in all of the balance training exercises. (It's also true that I trip over my feet when I walk) But when doing the yoga poses she actually commented on what a great sense of balance I have. I think there's some programming glitches in this system that need to be looked at.
Our intent is to use the Wii Fit on a daily basis. Our trainer likes it when we show up everyday and she gets a bit snotty if we miss a session. The more time you spend in training, the more exercise options the system lets you participate in. And performance doesn't seem to figure into this feature since I've been given additional balance exercises even though I can't perform above the "unbalanced" level on the ones I've already been given. We'll keep you updated on our progress. So far we've each gained a pound which means we now have 4 pounds to lose in a week and a half! Maybe this isn't going to be as easy as we thought.
