    Stupidity aside, I bought it for my parents and they love it. My Mum uses it for an hour or so a day and it's doing her the world of good. Her health has slow deteriorated over the past two years or so after being diagnosed with Parkinsons and she's had very noticable weight loss from using this since I bought it them about 2 months ago.

    I'm a very active person and I certainly break a sweat when using it.

    Basically, no. The wii is a gimmick just like all these other crapy pieces of technology which actually do nothing. Wobble boards spring to mind

    well to all the facepalmers have you ever actually used it?

    I have EA active and found it to be good for cardio as well but then I'm not very fit at all, and when I bought it I was too embarrassed to go to a gym or anything, when i did go to the gym the guy basically said anything that keeps my heart rate (age and weight specific) at around 170 bpm will burn calories, so presumably if a jog in my living room and my heart rate is above 170 tis all good.

    OP there's a lot of fitness snobs on here, but if you enjoy using it and think your seeing a change then carry on

    nobody said that they'll get thin quick, I said that if you enjoy it and feel better then go for it, slightly different. I wasn't referring to anyone in particular but there are plenty of people on this forum who think the only way to train is to join a gym and it's simply not the case. that is what i meant

    Joining a gym is by far the most effective way to train for 99.99% of people. Not many have the correct equipment (weight set, barbells, rack etc) at home, as for just cardio training them sure you dont need a gym. Theres roads and fields everywhere but it doesnt change the fact its not the most effective way to train anything other than cardio
