Wii Fitness for Dummies Bonus Tips and Content - Week 01

Wii Fitness for Dummies, available from booksellers everywhere, as well as online discounters like Amazon.com, focuses on three of the top Wii fitness programs, Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer, and Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010, as well as provides additional coverage of the entire Wii fitness phenomena and general exercise theory. As is always the case when writing a book, there is inevitably content that doesn't fit either due to subject matter, cost, or space constraints, which is where this regularly published bonus tips and content comes in. Each week, for an indeterminate number of weeks, Christina and I will be posting items that will both add to your enjoyment of the book and provide good fitness information in general.

This week, we're running the first in an eight part series of Classic Body Weight Exercises You Can Perform When You're Away From Your Wii* (*also great for warming up or cooling down, as discussed in book Chapter 1):

Wii Fitness for Dummies now available!

I'm happy to announce that our latest book, Wii Fitness for Dummies, available soon from booksellers everywhere, is listed as being in stock on Amazon.com starting February 8, 2010. Wii Fitness for Dummies focuses on three of the top Wii fitness programs, Wii Fit Plus, EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer, and Jillian Michaels Fitness Utimatum 2010, as well as additional coverage of the entire Wii fitness phenomena. You can use Amazon's nifty Look Inside feature to take a look at a low resolution version of a sampling of the book's contents (or see PDF excerpts here), and check out the Cheat Sheet for the book on Dummies.com. We have an official book page up on Armchair Arcade, where we'll soon be posting weekly bonus content that didn't fit in the book, as well as providing links to all mentioned above and more, including a Table of Contents (TOC) and the official Facebook discussion page. Finally, since March is Dummies Month at booksellers everywhere, we're happy to announce that Wii Fitness for Dummies is one of the featured publications in that promotion. As always, feel free to ask any questions, as both Christina and I will be happy to help. More news to follow on a regular basis, so stayed tuned!

Quick Update on our Latest Projects

Since I know everyone appreciates updates, I thought I would take some time to let everyone know the latest with the two hottest projects that we're all working on here at Armchair Arcade, as well as an old favorite. First, is the book, Wii Fitness for Dummies, which I'm working on with my wife Christina. Section I of the book covers Wii Fit Plus, Section II of the book covers EA Sports Active: Personal Trainer, and Section III of the book covers Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010. This full color Dummies book will contain a typical "Part of Tens" section (actually two) that will talk about some of the other Wii fitness options as well. The book is shaping up nicely, but we won't have access to the software in Sections I and III until their street release dates, which are in October. The present plan is to finish the book by the end of November for a possible January release. Fingers crossed with that, but at least Section II should be finished in another week!

The feature film documentary on videogames for Lux Digital Pictures also appears on track, as Matt Barton, Mark Vergeer and I are busy capturing and sending footage to the Director/Editor. It's still going to be a long process, as even though we already did a few hundred media files, there will ultimately be thousands in the film, along with the interviews we filmed back in March. Good stuff and we'll try to make a big push on this over the next month.

Finally, there's our book, Vintage Games, which I'm sure you're tired of hearing about by now. Anyway, the ninth and final free online bonus chapter (not found in the book) should hit Gamasutra any day now, and a special Italian edition is presently being shopped around, with more translations possibly to follow. Exciting stuff to be sure as that book continues to surprise us.

Any questions? Sound off!
