For the mom who still sweats to Jane Fonda tapes...
First, a warning: Giving Wii Fit to some moms might be perceived as the equivalent of giving a card that reads, "Happy Mother's Day! After brunch it's time to go on a diet." That's not going to go over too well.
However, for the mom who might not be so sensitive and who may not have done home-based exercise since the Jane Fonda video days, Wii Fit is the perfect way to bring her to up to date (and hopefully down in weight).
It's also a great one for hip new moms contending with the dreaded baby weight issue. (Click here for "Wii Mommies" attesting to their weight loss.) And Wii Fit can be fun (and healthy) for the whole family, too.
Wii Fit Plus, which runs about $17, is an upgrade to the 2008 Wii Fit game that brought the fitness video game genre into the mainstream. Improvements over the first game include the ability to create your own tailored workouts and the introduction of plenty of fun new balance games.
Of course, it also requires the purchase of the Wii gaming console in households absent the popular device. And it needs a Wii balance board, which you can get with a Wii Fit Plus bundle for about $109.
