Recently I was asked to provide interactive entertainment for a Destress Recess day. A range of activities offered included massages, a movie theater to watch old sitcoms while eating popcorn, a golfing instruction station, a room to play board games and more.
Because Virtual Fitness Wii FAB is not widely known, I took this opportunity to educate the participants about Wii exergaming protocol, techniques and becoming a professional WEE.
Tune it to hear how I planned, practiced and prepared for the event. I'd love to hear your feedback!
WEE on my way out the door
We're going to start a Wii Exergaming book club exergamers. Are you ready? It's not every day that I find a book dedicated to using the Wii with innovative programming.
Similar to Virtual Fitness Wii FAB which was developed by a professional fitness instructor, (yours truly), this book is written by a mathematician and educators.
Meghan Hearn, to quote the back cover briefly is "a mathematics educator and specialist" and Matthew C. Winner a teacher librarian, former elemetary educator holding a BS in elementary education and MS in school library media.
Disclaimer: I did request and receive a Not for Sale/Preview Copy Uncorrected Sample copy of the book in the mail.
The book is available in a number of formats on Amazon.com. Please order through the Wii Fitness Supply Store .

Did you know that besides this radio show, the Rogue Instructor (aka PendaGoddess) hosts another BTR show as well? It's called Virtual Fitness Wii FAB (For Absolute Beginners) and is where I first got started on BlogTalk Radio.
Virtual Fitness Wii FAB was created to discuss Wii exergaming and how fitness professionals could use this new format. Some of the shows really focussed on the fitness industry, and this is one of them. So I'm just moving them over here in case you missed those shows over there.
Gail is still going strong and is working in the fitness industry. This year she completed another Peachtree Road Race; number 21. We're planning to do a follow up show to discuss more industry insights. There are plenty of tips from Gail is this interview so make sure you take some notes.
"You must constantly reinvent yourself to remain viable"
Hope you have gotten your Wii on today. I sure have. I wanted to share a review I wrote on a book I received: Teach Math with the Wii. There is so little educational Wii literature that this book is a welcome addition.
The authors love technology and they wish to engage students in the math classroom at the highest level. How to get a greater buy-in? Why, bring the Wii into the classroom, of course.Imagine the students response when they see a Wii in the classroom!
What about you? Do you play the Wii seriously and professionally? Please, we'd love to share your story. Contact Raina at email@example.com. Let's schedule an interview on BlogTalk Radio.
