Wii exercise games that don't require the nunchuk?

I'd like to use my Wii to get more cardio exercise. In the past I've enjoyed Wii Sports, particularly boxing, and feel like I get a decent workout from it. However, due to a disability, it's not possible for me to hold a Wiimote or nunchuk in my right hand. Aside from this issue, I have decent mobility with my right arm and do want to use it in my workouts. Currently this requires strapping the Wiimote to my forearm, which is really uncomfortable, and most of the time the game can't detect my moves anyway.
So I'm interested in workout-type Wii games that can be played without 2 hands. I don't mind if it just doesn't register right arm movements, so long as that doesn't result in a poor score that prevents me from unlocking further exercises. DDR is a little bit tough for me due to the large size of the dance pad, but I would be interested in lower body workouts that use the Balance Board. I don't currently have Wii Fit or a Balance Board, but I would get one for a sufficiently cool game. I absolutely do not want to strap anything to my body.
