Go to the gym and play Wii Sports

I think this story can be filed under "things I should have thought of first." Personal trainer Zander Urquhart has developed an exercise regimen involving the Wii.

When I say "involving" the Wii, I mean that all they do is play Wii Sports. He got the idea from watching a kid playing a Wii one day. He originally targeted youth, but soon discovered that adults enjoyed it just as much.

Apparently, you can burn around 125 calories during each 15-minute session. This is similar to what you'd burn from jogging, cycling or playing tennis. According to John Moore University, you can burn around 1830 calories from playing about 12.2 hours per week, enough to shift 27 pounds. I guess I need to start "exercising" more.
