One of my Face Book buddies has been talking about the Wii Active 30-Day Challenge that she has begun. If you are like me, I was unaware of such a thing. I have a Wii and I have Wii Fit, (see my previous post) but I had not heard of the Active.
After about three days of reading her thoughts and experiences with Wii Active, and doing some research, I decided to jump on the bandwagon and purchase the disc. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. After the first day of workout, I was sore. It was a full body workout, done at medium intensity, for about 23 minutes. There was a wide variety of activities that were all pretty fun. The hardest I would have to say was the Inline Skating workout, where you have to squat down, hold the position and then jump up. Boy, that kicked my butt! The morning of my second workout, I was pretty sore and hoped the personal trainer that is in the video would take it easy on me. No such luck! The second day's activities were more difficult and focused on squats and lunges and some upper body. And to top it all off, the workout was longer by about 5 minutes. When I was finally done, I was relieved that I was allowed a rest day today.
So, tomorrow, Tuesday, starts my third day of the 30-day challenge. I will keep you posted every few days and let you know how it's going. According to the testimonials from the website, people who have completed the challenge have not only lost a lot of weight, but also a lot of inches. Stay tuned....
