A Wii Workout

A PERSONAL trainer is helping couch-potatoes to battle the bulge - by playing video games.

Zander Urquhart, 32, is thought to be the first fitness expert to adopt the Nintendo Wii as an exercise machine.

Four people at a time can exercise using theWii's unique motion-sensitive controller to mimic a tennis racket, baseball bat, golf club or boxing gloves.

University studies suggest players can burn 125 calories during a 15-minute session. (Wii)
