About

Wii Fit Trainer is the computer animated personal trainer from the fitness video game Wii Fit for the Nintendo Wii console. The fitness instructor gained notoriety online after she was revealed as a playable character in the fighting game Super Smash Bros. unveiled at the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3).

Origin

The video game Wii Fit was released for the Nintendo Wii console on December 1st, 2007, featuring a female virtual personal trainer that guides the player through various exercises. On June 11th, 2013, Nintendo announced that the franchise-crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS and Wii U consoles would launch in 2014 during their presentation at the E3 conference. In the reveal trailer, the Wii Fit personal trainer was presented as a new playable character (shown below).
