US Navy Will Begin Using Wii Fit in Boot Camp

US Navy Recommending Wii Fit Training in Boot Camp

As you may remember, I tried the Wii Fit for 30 days after its release. Although I did see some results, I don't think it was anything close to what G.I. Jane accomplished in boot camp. Nonetheless, the US Navy recently announced that they'll be adding games like Dance Dance Revolution and Wii Fit to the early stages of boot camp to prepare recruits for the rigors of what's to come.

Apparently, recruits are showing up prepared to work it out during training, but are getting more injuries in the process. Officials say that introducing other exercises — like you'd find on the gaming console — can switch things up and help recruits build endurance. The Wii has already been approved by the American Heart Association, why not the Navy? What do you think — can the Wii actually help the Navy build a stronger soldier?
