Go get your Wii fitness on

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.
