Wii Yoga and Pilates Fitness Game.
The New U Fitness First Yoga and Pilates game for Wii comes with more than 120 total exercises. Exercises work core muscles and help the follower use breathing and meditation techniques. Personalized goals help the game create fitness programs to help the player reach those goals. Alternatively, the follower can choose to play the game without setting goals.
Instructors are live people. Many Wii fitness games choose cartoon avatars to represent people. Cartoons are great for kids, but adults trying to get fit or lose weight want to see how a movement is completed by a live instructor.
Workouts are completed with the Wii Balance Board and MotionPlus controller. The game is listed as compatible with these accessories, but they are not listed as required. There is a chance the follower can play the game and track progress without these accessories.
The Wii fitness genre of video games has few games that stand out as being worth the money, but New U Fitness First Yoga and Pilates does just that. According to some consumer reviews, the game actually works like the product description says it will and helps the user follow movements with ease.
The beginner levels take the time to explain each of the moves. Intermediate moves a little faster, with less instruction. The advanced level moves quickly and the follower must already know Yoga moves to follow along. This allows the player to progress if they start on the beginner level.
