Scottish fitness trainer uses Wii

Zander Urquhart, a fitness trainer based in Glasgow, Scotland is running classes using Nintendo's Wii console to help people get in shape.

At first Mr Urquhart aimed the classes at kids, but soon realized the adults were just as keen. It's now so successful he has a four week waiting list. Thanks to Craig McGill for the news tip.

The fitness aspect of Wii is something Nintendo are expected to capitalize on, with a specific game to be released later this year. For the time being it has the working title "Health Pack" and is being overseen by Shigsy.

It's a good thing that Zander Urquhart beat Richard Simmons to this one, or else I would have destroyed my Wii.

Unfortunately Master Foot, I have to agree. My Wii would be no longer. Richard Simmons is an asshole.

I'm curious to learn more about this Health Pack game. Have any details been announced? Of course I'm not going to buy it but nonetheless, it sounds interesting. If Shigsy is running or at least overseeing development, it's bound to be high quality material.
