Wii are excited...

Every Tuesday morning, RWJF program staff gather for a meeting to review proposed grants, policies and other foundation matters.  There's usually a few minutes at the start when announcements, staff birthdays, etc. flash on the screen at the front of the room.  Today we found out that RWJF's fitness center is adding the Nintendo Wii to the array of fitness services that are available to staff and guests. 

I was surprised at first that they made the move, but think it's great that the facility is so forward-thinking in its approach to fitness.  It may be the trick to get me in there one more day a week, which I've been pledging to do for ages now, but with no real conviction. 

I'll try to follow up with our fitness center staff to see whether and how staff incorporate the Wii in to their workouts, and report back to the blog.  In the meantime, have you heard of other workplaces that are trying this out?
