The Master Exercise Kit includes five components: a resistance band, calorie counter adapter, yoga mat, water bottle, and step cups for the balance board. Made of strong yet flexible hollow rubber, the Xertube Resistance Band augments the strength of bicep curls, shoulder presses, and other Wii Fit exercises, particularly those in EA Active™. The Calorie Counter Adapter for the Wii Fit™ remote is compatible with Wii Motion Plus™. It counts calories as they are burned, measures the frequency and speed of swings in miles or kilometers per hour, and displays the data on a small LED screen. Made of a soft, non-slip plastic, the Yoga Mat provides firm support for the Wii Fit™ Balance Board. The Water Bottle features a screw top and eco-friendly recyclable material and is portable, so it can be used while exercising on the Wii Fit™ or outdoors. Finally, the Balance Board Step Cups, which are lined with rubber to prevent slipping, elevate the Balance Board to four inches, a typical height for step aerobics.
"The convergence of fitness and games made Wii more entertaining and accessible to a wider audience. This exercise kit is designed after months of careful thought.” said Shea Grunzweig, Assistant Sales Manager at CTA Digital. “The resistance band and calorie counter helps make exercises much more effective and track-able."
The Yoga mat, is a green yoga mat that you place in the floor. It provides you with a little more comfort that just using the floor. The resistance band you have to attach the handles to it, but it’s a piece of cake. I think the entire Master Exercise Kit is a nice addition to the Wii Fit. It will increase your workout by adding resistance in multiple places. The bigger steps will work on the butt muscles that I so dearly need to get rid of.
