It's the same story for most households. Buy a Wii, play Wii sports until you're a bowling champion. Then, you decide to purchase a balance board and a copy of Wii fit.

You measure your BMI and think 'i'm going to use this board every day'.

A month later, it's gathered dust and is placed behind the TV stand or away in a cupboard along with the console, only ever to be discussed in passing with 'remember that time you nearly broke my TV by throwing the Wii controller'.

So, what better time to actually dust off your old console and balance board and give it another go. With social distancing and limited options regarding going out, you could actually make good use of it all. This is especially true if you don't have a garden or much space in the home. Remember, Wii fit offered plenty of methods of exercise, and is still fun for kids. You could set up a challenge within your household and set targets for's probably actually a good way to keep track of the days as well!!


Don't forget, there's yoga, strength training, aerobics and balance games to choose from. Including ski jump, jogging, hula hoop, tightrope walking and many many more.

It's also worth charging a couple of controls and getting the family to play Wii sports as well. Challenging one another to a game of tennis or bowling is still extremely good at a time like this, and can certainly help with your mental health, even if it's only for a short while.
