Pros: When it worked it was perfect. I was always sweating after each session.
Cons: When it stopped responding it defeated the purpose of the system. it actually became a hindrance. To have a your heart rate up only to have come crashing down you can't get receiver & transmitter to function right was very disappointing.
Pros: Fun exercises, good instruction, made me sweat (in a good way). I like the heart monitor.
Cons: slow between exercises made it frustrating along with the system not reading my movements, especially on lateral upper body work. Too much jumping and running for my joints, even though I was able to walk instead, it still didn't read my movements well.
Pros: lots of variety in workouts. Very challenging and engaging. Tracking system is great.
Cons: after a few weeks some leg movements were not detected. A few days later the leg transmitter no longer connects and the next day the arm/heartrate transmitter stopped too. Warranty is only 90 days and you have to ship back to EA Sports.
Summary: If you are looking for something with a bit more challenge than Wii Fit while again having the chance to play some fun exercise games then EA Sports Active is the game for you. My wife and I have run rings around Wii Fit Plus and this gave us further motivation to get off the couch and lose some calories. A great buy and a must for Wii Fit owners.
Summary: I love this product. It has lots of activities for upper/lower body, cardio, and sports. I can use the pre-selected workouts or create my own. I love being able to create an audio playlist from their choices so I can change the music to fit my mood and workout. There is a 30 day challenge that seems interesting but I haven't started mine yet. Right now I am just comfortable getting use to the routines.
Summary: I just got this product today because I got tired of going to the gym to work out and read pretty good reviews. I'm 24 and am very athletic and in good shape and always active and I literally tried the excersize for 15 minutes and my legs already hurt so I definitely believe the product works, and its fun no gross gyms for me anymore :)
Summary: I bought this a few months ago when I first started dieting. I'm a clumsy person and I've always been terrified of going to the gym so I bought this because it looked like it would give me good results without the embarrassment of being in front of other people. After finishing the 30 day challenge I lost about 20 pounds and about 4 inches off my waist and then I went and got the 2nd game - the More Workout - and I was about halfway through the 6 week challenge when my...
Summary: I just bought it yesterday and the first time I played it, I was hooked. The workouts can be quite challenging. I only played for 17 minutes but was already sweating buckets but I guess it depends on what you do. I think this product actually works because I woke up this morning feeling my leg and arm muscles sore. This proved to me that this game can give you actual results.
Summary: Seriously , No LIE ! I am a person who can Never stick to anything and Finish it to the End ! But I did w/ this Game & lost 20lbs because of it . This Game will Reward you w/ cute lil Trophies & Goals to obtain . You can choose to either work out w/ a Woman or Man & choose how you look . The Resistant band IS and Looks pretty Cheap but has never broke on me & I still use it w/out the Game .It gives you OFF days every 2 days or so .
