My boys (aged 5 and 8 ) were estatic when we received the Wii Jumpstart – Get Moving Family Fitness (Sports Edition), for a review. They love playing the Wii, but unfortunately, don’t get to play much because, well, of this Mama here. I don’t want them to be Wii addicts, so I had earlier imposed a schedule when they can play. This time, because of this review, there were exceptions. Exceptions ,that my boys were happy to abide with.

About Wii JumpStart – Get Moving Family Fitness (Sports Edition)

Brooke Burke, a mum of 4 and fitness expert has teamed up with JumpStart’s Get Moving Family Fitness, motivating players into getting active, and having fun! There are 15 sports challenges, including basketball and speed skating, in 11 exotic arenas, such as the moon, a dinosaur jungle or a volcano. Players can design their own characters to race and play, keep track of personal best calories burned, engage in routines for an extra challenge and compete head-to-head or play solo. The game can be played utilizing the Wii Balance Board™ or simply with the Wii Remote™ and nunchuk.

wiijumpstartMy boys loved creating their own lil avatars, as they got to choose different hair color, eyes, skin color, and trust me, they chose the wildest combinations ever. I think they just love creating alternate versions of themselves, which makes it more fun for them.

With a bit of direction from Brooke, the boys were off with all the various challenges. Favourites included tire runs (football), shooting hoops (basketball) and flying. While it didn’t seem like they needed to keep track of the number of calories burned…guess what? This mama here took up the Wii Remote and nunchuk..and did some exercisin’ herself. I have to say, IT WAS HARD WORK! I tried dodge ball, running and of course, shooting hoops (had a little competition with the hubby ~ who incidentally found himself perspiring, as well). I definitely loved the the fact I knew just how much I was burning off, although I secretly thought it should be more, seeing that I was sweating buckets by the end of the hour long session.

Buy It! : The Wii Jumpstart – Get Moving Family Fitness was recently released on 15th June 2010, and is available at most retail stores (Walmart, Target, GameStop), or on at $29.99. It is definitely a keeper in the family, especially during those wet and rainy days and my boys always have a blast competing against each other.
