SEGA brings Daisy Fuentes Pilates to Wii
The Summer's upon us and we all know what that means: train that belly off before removing your shirt from your upper body. Luckily, SEGA is planning to help us a little with a new Balance Board-enabled Pilates workout.
SEGA of America has announced the upcoming release of Daisy Fuentes Pilates, the first Pilates workout program for the Wii. Set at a lush tropical resort and hosted by Daisy Fuentes, longtime Pilates icon and star of the entertainment industry, the title supports the Wii Balance Board. Created in partnership with Interactive Game Group, Daisy Fuentes Pilates features customizable workouts, fitness tracking real-time coaching and interactive feedback.
Daisy Fuentes Pilates, the first self-titled Pilates endeavor, goes beyond the one-way, static workouts of traditional DVDs using the Wii's controls to monitor movements and offer instant feedback, ensuring proper body motion so players get the most from every Pilates session. Players stay on track following the integrated, on-screen "timing bar" as well as the real-time feedback from Daisy Fuentes herself, whose voice guides the exercises. Players will be able to choose between English and Spanish.
"This is a great way to get Pilates training that fits your schedule and lifestyle," said Daisy Fuentes. "You can start out as an absolute beginner then move into intermediate and advanced levels-all at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, and with responsive feedback that helps ensure you're mastering core skills correctly before you advance."
Daisy Fuentes Pilates will be released in North America in late Summer 2009.
