Summary: I used the first Sports Active and More Workouts and was very satisfied with them. However, I was frustrated with always having to hold controllers or wear that Nunchuck holder. I used the Xbox version with lots of frustration, and pain (see my review on the Xbox version). So, I have decided to go back to the Wii version.
great product.glad i purchased. i dont get bored with it.

Summary: Great product..can pick from any of the preset workouts or pick a 9 week program. You can also build your own workout.sometimes it takes a little effort to get the wii to pick up your moves,but overall good product. They is running in place and other exercises that can be rough on your body.
Summary: Absolutely love the workouts. Having a personal trainer in my home for less than $30 is great! Although, the communications goes out periodically during the workout but one tap on the wii remote and it's back connected. EA is working on updating the heart rate monitor because it goes out.
Summary: Still trying to figure it all out, but it does have what I was looking for. I wanted a wii game that had step aerobics, and this has several different routines. I'm not very good at navigating the program, so I had a hard time just trying it out without having to go through a complete workout.
Summary: Let me be clear, up front, that I'm no exercise guy. I typically don't work-out, I've never met a donut I didn't like, and I'm just not that interested in getting in shape. I'm no doctor, I'm no lawyer, I'm a married screenwriter who likes to watch movies. A perfect combination for fat and immobility. When I went to the Doctor for my annual physical he informed me that I was "borderline" obese.
Good product - haven't lost interest in it. Routines are engaging...

Summary: Active 2 Wii is a great exercise game. Its entertaining. There is some problems with the arm and leg sensors. The game will periodically stop and make you respond to a prompt if the sensor is not picked up. It occurs every time I run the program. A typical routine is 15-30 minutes so this problem can be irritating. I thought I had a bad sensor so I purchased another one through Ebay. Performance improved but it was still a problem.
Summary: Great exercise game! I bought it for days I can't get to the YMCA and it more than meets expectations. Gets you warmed up and sweating in no time. I was skeptical at first, I hate Wii Fit because its too childish, this game is like an exercise video that you work along with. The heart rate monitor helps you control your pace, I don't like the resistance bands that it came with but you can get hand weights instead and also change the setting to hand weights so the person...
Summary: Before I bought EA Sports I was getting my exercise with Wii Fit Plus and loved the games and exercizes on Plus - but after 100 days (and 15 lost pounds) I was getting just a little bored with Wii Fit Plus. It's a great game, but they need to upgrade it so it either has more combined routines or so it will let you advance to harder routines over time.
Summary: I am a regular user of the EA Sports Wii personal trainer, having used version 1, and the 'More Workouts' version(both very good products) I was eagerly awaiting the new version with Heart rate monitor and no need for nunchuk and annoying wire attaching it to the Wiimote. I have been using the Wii personal trainer products for 9 months, before that I exercised only using a treadmill(45min/4days a week/7%incline) and was 30lbs heavier.
A fun workout if you can keep the controller alive

Summary: I've had EA Sports Active 2 for about a week now. I've been doing the Cardio Kick Start program on Easy mode. I must really be out of shape because my heart rate usually climbs into zone 5, near max for my age, once or twice during the cardio exercises. That, and the sore muscles the next day means I'm getting a really good workout. So far the variety of exercises is pretty good.
