Jessica Alba Goes Wii

Jessica Alba has one of the most wanted bodies in Hollywood. Jessica's been reported to be strict on portion control, water consumption and cardio but it seems she may have added another aspect to her get fit routine: The Wii.

Here's more:

"I just got the Wii and that's fun. I play all of the Wii Sports games, like bowling, tennis, and baseball. That's a lot of fun."

"I think the physicality of the Wii gets people off the couch. Sometimes you can just sit there playing a video game for hours and never move and you're brain is just zapped from playing the game. With the Wii, you're up on your feet and moving around. The physical aspect of it is great, especially for kids. They actually call it the Wii Diet, since active players can burn calories!

Hey, whatever works. Obesity is ridiculous with kids today in our country. Anything that helps is great. You know, West Virginia is using Dance Dance Revolution in all schools as part of P.E. I know a lot of public school programs don't even have P.E. these days. That's crazy. It wasn't even an option when I was a kid. What the heck! I remember climbing up the rope, doing the mile run and all of that stuff."

Want to get fit with your own Wii workout? Then Check out the Balance Board for Wii.

Oh please! For people that's saying it's not a workout they must not have one. I played the wii boxing game and my arms are killing me more than lifting weights at the gym! And dance dance revolution is basically like jumping up and down in place so it burns calories. My cousin did it all summer and lost weight. So yes it true, don't knock it till your try it. (And of course not on a high level, not beginner)

My parents just got the Wii the other day, so I can't wait to play with it when I go home for Spring Break. I honestly doubt that Wii alone can get me a body like hers but luckily I do like to exercise. :) PS. She looks amazing in yellow!

I got a wii for xmas and it is a workout, not that I would skip a normal workout to play video games. It is nice though instead of being a sloth on the couch to do something inside (it is cold out) that also gets you moving!

I actually have to agree with Jessica.. I was so bored of the treadmill and the stationary bike, I decided to spend some time with the Wii.. let me tell you, after a month of 4 to 5 days per week of 30 to 40 minutes of intense Wii boxing.. I love about 3 lbs from my already small frame. And my arms are pretty toned from it, too.. But I'm bored again, so back to the stationary bike.

Wii Boxing isn't like real boxing. I boxed all through college, and last weekend I played it on Wii at a friend's house. Better than no exercise I guess, but nowhere near the sweat-drenched workout of really boxing. I'd rather lace up my gloves and do it in real life, but then, I've never been into video games.

Nowadays most younger generations grow up with "the screen" as a daily part of their routine, be it TV,PC,a mobile, ect. Putting video games such as Dance Dance revolution into a schools P.E System only further conditions kids to seek other "screen" based activities. Instead of putting video games in these types of environments perhaps the schools should be teaching real dance moves based upon the current trends, for example HipHop. I know if I hear a funky tune Its impossible to sit still. Over all the Wii is not exercise, period. It is merely a more active form of playing video games. Having a video game product marketed as a healthy activity is simply Marketing.

If you happen to miss a scheduled workout, I think the Wii is a great option! :D My husband and I own one and we LOVE it! Boxing is my favorite because it gives both my arms a great workout (tennis only works my right arm :)) AND it gives my mid-section the best workout ever! It's like real boxing! To block you have to move your midsection left to right and it really works those obliques. If you concentrate on your middle (like a Pilates class) during boxing it'll make the workout even better!

I don't think Wii is a replacement for true exercise, but it is probably better than traditional gaming systems.
