I usually do Dance Dance Revolution on PS2 to shape up for my annual WDW trip. It's fun & I find I committ to it more than using my other countless aerobics dvds. I just bought Wii Fit yesterday, but haven't used it yet. For the 3.5 months I have left till my triip, which would be better (more fun, easier to committ, burn more calories) workout? I usually try to do 150 calories with DDR 5 days a week (only starting now, LOL)!

DDR is better in the aerobics department. However wii fit I have found is better at toning muscles. They have a lot of different exercises that tone different muscles such as thighs, abs, arms ect. The step game in wii fit right now is really slow, (you have to unlock faster speeds) but the closest thing to DDR right now. I have found I like DDR better so far than the step game. The other aerobic games on wii fit that I have unlocked are just jogging, which is a bit hard since I just jogged in place. My husband seems to think you might be able to jog into another close room and it will still work. Wii fit is a lot of fun. My total time played is just over an hour, which was only yesterday. The balance games are addicting and fun however most of that time came from the exercises. The exercises were easy enough for me to do as well. Maybe if you combined the wii fit and DDR you would get a total workout.
