Wii training
« on: November 23, 2010, 09:19:33 am »
So yesterday I talked to my office geek and he said I had a million dollar idea.  -This was another way of saying 'nothing like that exists'.

Let me back up:

I asked him if there was a Wii game where the controller (nunchuck) or a pair of controllers can clip to the pedals of MY exercise bike and I could go ride the Tour de France or some other such race.

All I want is something a bit more interactive than my "TriCycle" DVD for indoor training. 
I move; it moves.

I want to make use of what I already have and not spend gobs of money on indoor 'gear' with no other use.  Is there a Wii game that anyone uses or can use with an exercise bike?

I'm almost positively certain there isn't an actual cycling game that would incorporate a trainer or stationary bike, however people have had some success strapping the Wii-motes to their pedals and playing the jogging game on Wii Fit.

Sort of along those same lines, I'm really impressed with the quality of workout you can get out of EA's Active 2 for Xbox Kinect. The hard setting has me burning 250+ calories in about 35 minutes with an average HR of 141bpm. Not too bad for "playing videogames."
