And so it begins ...

Just like DDR, the Wii is slowly but surely making its way into the minds and ideas of fitness-crazed folks looking for a way to get fat kids off the couch. Put down the Cheetos and check out what's going on with Wii fitness:

Scottish exercise master Zander Urquhart has become the first coach to offer Wii fitness classes.

The 32 year-old, who runs WestCoast Fitness, reckons it's the perfect way to reach out to people that don't normally associate themselves with traditional exercise, and decided to give it a go after he saw a porky youngster work up a sweat using the console.

"At first I took it along to private clients who had children that didn't take part in exercise - and they loved it," Urquhart beamed. "While the adults were doing a hard work out, the kids were getting involved too. After that I started getting requests from adults and I started looking into it a bit more. It turns out that it can benefit everyone."

"Like all good exercise, you get out of it what you put in, so anyone can get a strenuous workout from it."

Love it or hate it, if the Wii can get kids to not be so fat and lazy, then I'm all for it. I love video games, but we can't all be fat slobs searching for the Sword of 1,000 Truths. If we are, then the terrorists have truly won.

You don't have to buy Destiny to get a white PS4
