FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION

BLAZE team up with Mel B and Fitness First to bring new Wii Fit accessories to the Nintendo Wii

Doncaster, UK– 03/09/2010

Leading video game accessory manufacturer BLAZE is pleased to announce the latest Fitness First licensed product. Endorsed by healthy lifestyle advocate and global superstar Mel B, the Wii Fitness First Resistance kit adds extra tension to your console based workout, whilst keeping your controllers nearby!

The New BLAZE Resistance kit is designed to give you an edge when exercising using your Nintendo Wii. There are now many exercise and fitness titles for the interactive console, all of which can be enhanced and optimized by this new kit from BLAZE.

Firstly, included in the kit as a pre-tensioned resistance band. This band is made from highly durable and extra resistant materials, giving the perfect amount of extra resistance when using your console to exercise.

This added resistance forces your body to work harder when following the on-screen instructions, ensuring you take 100% from every session.

This new BLAZE Fitness First Resistance kit is for those people who want to step it up a level, no longer content with the weight free exercise, wanting to see gym style results in their own homes.

With your hands working the resistance band, you will need somewhere to put your controllers, right? The handy inclusion of an arm and leg strap, securely holds your Wii Nunchuk and Wii mote close to your body, giving you convenient access to the controls should you want to change your exercise or navigate the Wii menus.

These straps offer comfort as well as convenience, being made from super soft, flexible materials. The straps are designed specifically to hold your controllers, keeping them secure enough to stop them moving around, but comfortable enough for you to forget they are even there!

This whole Mel B– Fitness First range from BLAZE is designed to give you that extra edge with your console based workout, bringing the expertise of the world’s largest health and fitness club into your home.

Also included in the pack is a voucher entitling you to a 5 day free trial in your local Fitness First health club and gym, giving you the professional instruction and motivation you need to be ultimately successful with your fitness regime.

The BLAZE Fitness First Mel B Resistance kit will be available in October 2010 and can be purchased from www.blazeeurope.com and leading video games stores for the low price of£9.99
