Pilates on the Nintendo Wii, with Daisy Fuentes.

Coming this summer: Wii Pilates.

Well, sort of.

SEGA announced today that it plans to release "Daisy Fuentes Pilates," the first Pilates workout program for the Wii, during the warmer months.

Footage was shot at what the company calls "a lush tropical resort," and uses the Wii Balanced Board.

During the game, the Wii's controls will monitor movements and offer instant feedback. On on-screen timing bar and real-time feedback from Fuentes will help keep users on track. There is an English and Spanish version included in each game.

So kids, don't get mad when Mom is stealing your Wii time.

“This is a great way to get Pilates training that fits your schedule and lifestyle,” Fuentes said. "You can start out as an absolute beginner then move into intermediate and advanced levels--all at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, and with responsive feedback that helps ensure you’re mastering core skills correctly before you advance."
