Does Exercising with the Wii Count?
Louise_WebMD_Staff posted:
I use the Wii to exercise every day. I definitely wouldn't exercise at all if it weren't for the wii. We live in a nasty climate. I don't have time for the gym and exercise videos have never done it for me.

But, does it count as exercise-we use the Wii Fit and a few other of the exercise specific titles. I am not trying to count Sonic the Hedgehog or anything. ;-)
Karen Kemmis, PT, DPT, MS responded:
It is great that you are doing some exercise on those bad weather days, I would just think about the general exercise guidelines for bone health and choose Wii activities that fit. For example, activities that include stepping/impact, those that help your posture, and balance activities. To learn more about exercises for bone health, I have posted a resource titled "Information about exercise."
