Minutes Gym – Wii Fit Without the Wii

minutes_gymIf you’re looking to buy Wii just for Wii fit you may want to check out the Minutes Gym Digital Video Trainer from Takara Tomy.

It is easily hooked up to your TV or any display with a composite video input.

From there you enter some basic info and use the integrated body fat sensor to measure your current state of physical fitness (or lack of).

Instead of a scary personal trainer barking at you you are faced with cutsey animated figures that guide you through various fitness regimes; of which there is over 100,000,000 3 minute workouts – that’s over 100 million!!!!

Since this device can measure your body fat, it can monitor your physical progress over a period of 3 months.

It is available from the Japan Trend Shop for $73.

I got this lump of info from Ohgizmo
