Bronx Students Get Wii Workout

Some students in New York City are playing video games at school to get into shape.

About 25 Bronx middle school students are spending four hours a week after school boxing and bowling, playing tennis and golf and exercising using Nintendo Wii Fit consoles.

Students at five city middle schools are using the video games and equipment donated by Nintendo as part of a pilot program.

Department of Education officials say they are seeking private donations to expand the video fitness program to all its middle school students.
