The kids love the Nintendo Wii system, but there’s another reason to embrace it. People of all ages can enjoy being mentally and physically active as they simulate sports such as bowling, boxing, tennis, golf and baseball. In New York, the Ballston Spa Lions Club donated a Wii system to Maplewood Manor and it’s helping elderly residents enjoy themselves while exercising. The Wii system offers users low-impact exercises with a good range of motion, ideal for players who can’t engage in strenuous physical activity but still enjoy sports, says facility administrator Diane Brown.
