We've been testing tons of workout videos to save you time and trouble. Some things go just perfectly together'??peanut butter and chocolate, spaghetti and meatballs, down coats and winter winds. In a one-exercise-doesn'??t-fit-all fitness world, how about a new combo of relaxing yoga and core-strengthening pilates for the ultimate workout? Wii can do that.

The NewU Mind Body Yoga & Pilates ($29.99) workout is new for the Wii and combines the best of pilates and yoga so you can be a new you. Whether it'??s to lose a belly, get back your body after a baby, destress or help with back pain, the customizable aspect of this program is what really sets it apart. You input what'??s going on with you, and they choose the right exercises. You can customize your workout based on your individual needs'??a fantastic way to exercise since your goals usually change workout to workout.

With over 115 different exercises on the program (the killer side planks with rotation are my favorite), you get the benefits of both methods of exercise for whatever you please'??a muscle-intense workout in a quick class or a quiet session of meditation.

Don'??t understand a movement? No worries. The instructor walks (or should I say exercises) you through a tutorial of the move. Your reps are counted throughout the routine (with a little motivating '??you did it!'? at the end of each set), and your form is kept on track with precise-motion tracking color codes for all the Balance Board exercises.

Working out with this easy-to-follow program will definitely tone your muscles, calm your mind and might even make that occasional Reese'??s Peanut Butter cup not such a guilty indulgence.

The NewU Mind Body Yoga & Pilates Workout is now available for Wii'?¢ for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
