New year, new U

By Mir
January 3, 2011
Category Contests

Are you one of the people who vowed to take better care of yourself in 2011? Last year I did a fitness challenge to kick off 2010 and it was awesome, because it afforded me the opportunity to 1) complain endlessly about how much I hated it and then 2) buy new pants at the end. Win/win!

Anyway, if you’re looking to work out at home a bit more this year, may I recommend New U Mind/Body Yoga & Pilates Workout for your Wii? It looks like a great way to reap the fitness benefits of a rigorous workout without having to embarrass yourself in front of other people. And I’m giving a copy away!

Want to win it? First, go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, January 6th, 2011 for a chance to win. I’ll pick a winner via random number generation and centeredness of your tree pose. (Handy tip: Try not to fall over.)

Ready? Go!


  1. Super! If now I can only pry the Wii away from the kids!

  2. This would be awesome, I love pilates and yoga. Pick me!!!!

  3. I would love this!

  4. Nice!

  5. Well, my tree pose may not be very centered, but I haven’t fallen over yet! I need more practice, so this would be awesome!

  6. This would be much more helpful than flailing about with drumsticks! 😉

  7. Pick me! I need a new mind and body!

  8. That sounds great, although I will definitely fall over! I have horrible balance. And I currently have the hiccups, which doesn’t help.

  9. This would inspire me to buy a wii!

  10. My mind could always use some improving, my body might be beyond help, but I’ll give it a whirl.

  11. Thank you!!

  12. My Wii enjoys telling me I’m off balanced. I so need this.

  13. We have a new Wii in our house, and this would be an awesome addition!

  14. Sounds great!

  15. I can not do a tree pose for the life of me. Doesn’t stop me from trying though!

  16. This could just about force me into some exercise…

  17. I’d love this – I can only get so much exercise with Wii Sports hula hoopin’!

  18. sounds lovely!

  19. I would love this! Thanks.

  20. Maybe this will be just the motivation that I need 🙂

  21. Looks fabulous! I’d like to as well…

  22. My Wii constantly tells me I have great balance and then says I need to work more on my core. It builds me up to beat me down, so perhaps I need a new trainer! Thanks for this!

  23. This is the ONLY exercise I partake in. When I actually exercise. If I won, I suppose it would mean I should start exercising again. If I don’t win? I STILL win because then the universe is saying I can still be a lazy pants.

  24. I’m working on making a list of 40 things I want to do by the time I am 40. Learning yoga is on the list. This would be very helpful and would save me from much embarrassment!

  25. Ooooh. Pick me! Pick me! Thanks for the giveaway!

  26. All I need now is someone to help me figure out how to hook the Wii to the TV. I know. I used to be able to do this myself, but this time, I can’t figure it out.

  27. Sounds Great…Random Number Choose ME!!!!

  28. Love is a strong word, but I would appreciate this and make good use of it. Thanks, Pretty Mir!

  29. Count me in! My mind and body could both use some help!

  30. would love to have this and a smaller butt in 2011. thanks

  31. Would love to try yoga in the privacy of home!

  32. Does it come with motivation pills? ‘Cuz I need those, too 🙂

  33. I just finished my office and the wii is now in there – this would be great!!!

  34. This would be a great addition to our wii games!

  35. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Wii.

  36. Terrific! Santa brought the wii to our house this year,

  37. Sounds great to me!!

  38. Ooh, pick me! pick me!

  39. Santa brought the kids a Wii this year – now Mommy wants to use it, too! 🙂

  40. PERFECT! count me in!!

  41. This would be great!

  42. I’d love this!

  43. I would love to give this a try without TOTALLY embarrassing myself in front of anyone else…(or causing them to laugh uncontrollably as they watch me attempt this!) This would be awesome!

  44. I def. want this!

  45. I would definitely like to give this a try. Thanks for the giveaway.

  46. This would be awesome!

  47. Me! Me! I’m co-ordination-challenged and need to practice A LOT before I take a class in front of other humans!

  48. I would LOVE to try that out in the privacy of my own home. And we JUST got a wii so I actually qualify for this now!!!

  49. This would be perfect to help lose the baby weight after our new baby is born in April!

  60. Sounds like fun to me.

  61. Ooooooh, yeah!!!

  62. It’s a new year and I REALLY want a new me. Or at least some peace of mind. Could REALLY use that…

  63. I would love a new Wii workout game. Maybe a new one will get me off the couch!

  64. Wouldn’t this just be the ticket? Happy New Year, indeed!

  65. I could really use this!

  66. maybe this will get me to use our Wii!

  67. oh, heck yes!!

  68. ooh, want! I was going to a pilates class but totally fell off the wagon.

  69. Umm, it sounds like fun? No that’s not right . . . it sounds necessary?

  70. I would love it on a cold day like today. I hate getting all bundled up for the gym… this way I can do exercises in my PJs!

  71. Oooh, a way to exercise without leaving the house! Sounds perfect!

  72. I could really use this! My body could definitely be improved!

  77. I don’t know if there is hope for me, but I’d like to try!

  78. Loathe though I am to admit it, my current regimen of sitting on the couch with my computer and Christmas cookies isn’t actually working that well for me. Please help.

  79. Since I didn’t get the Wii Fit that I requested for Christmas, this would be perfect!

  80. isn’t it time I win something already? And, by the way you are pretty!

  81. Definitely in for this one!

  87. cool!

  88. only day 3 and i have already failed my resolution to go to the gym EVERY day. this woudl be a great addition to my normal rotation.

  89. Still don’t own a Wii… but keep thinking if I someday win one of your Wii-game giveaways I’ll have a perfect excuse to get one! 🙂

  90. I have been drooling over this – seriously need some Pilates in my life!

  91. Need this…

  92. Wheeeeeeee….we just got a Wii and we (I) could use this!

  101. I’m not certain my mind is salvageable at this point, but I’ll take a new body!! 🙂

  102. My tree pose is remarkably good, at least in comparison to dancer.

  103. I need a reason to learn to use the Wii after a year (and many games of Mario Bros under my daughters’ belts) in this house, and I love Pilates. This could be the reason. Choose me, Random Number Generator!!

  104. Since I decided that my resolution (like a million other people) was to exercise more (okay, at all) this would be great! I’ve been using Wii Fit Plus, which I love, but who wouldn’t want something new?

  105. Would love it!

  106. I would love this.

  107. Meeeeeeeee!

  108. I so need something new to motivate me 🙂

  109. I would love this! My goal this year it to work out every single day. Three days down…362 left to go!

  118. OOOOH….this would be awesome!!!

  119. Totally! Our new Wii Fit is on its way to help out start the new year out right, so we’re definitely in the right mindset to get some use out of this!

  120. I was wanting one of these for myself…. my wii only has kid games!!!

  121. I love Pilates! Not Yoga, so much, but what the heck.

  122. I need this to help with my new health-kick! =)

  123. I have renamed my belly and behind “pierogi” and “ravioli”. I could use this to get rid of them!

  124. Would love this! Have vowed to spend time every day with my wii fit. This will help to mix it up a bit!

  125. Keep thinking about taking a yoga class, but am already blushing at the thought of how much I would embarrass myself. Maybe this will make me a little braver!!!

  126. My expanding bottom would really benefit from this!!

  127. I would love to try this!

  128. My tree pose is actually quite off-center, thus I need to win this! See my logic?

  130. Sounds great – thanks for the chance! And, let’s just say that my tree fell over in a big windstorm…

  171. I’d love to see if this can kickstart my weight loss this year!

  172. We love this!!

  173. Last year, I did the EA Sport Active to jumpstart my weight loss program… and prompty injured the Achilles tendon in both ankles, which resulted in being on crutches for a few weeks. So I could just imagine what I could hurt with a yoga/pilates program for the Wii!

  334. Sounds Cool! I’d like to try it!
