The Gravity fitness centre at Le Parker Meridien hotel in New York on West 57th Street decided they would transform their old squash court into a Wii Fit and Wii Sport room so that New Yorkers with small apartements have a place where they can comfortably play on the Wii. Not only does this Wii installation have a nice digital projector, Wii Fit and Wii Sports, they even have a personal trainer.
A Wii Sports session is pretty expensive, you pay $120 but you get perosnal one-on-one coaching from the human coach while you give the best of yourself in Wii Sports or Wii Fit. Some players claim that the personal trainer really motivates you to do the best you can. But there’s also a cheap $50 one hour session without the helpful personal trainer.
