Summary: I bought this game for the Wii because of trying to lose weight. I love the workout that it gives but the Band that came with it doesn't register when trying to do the required exercise's & the Wii does not seem to recognize that I am doing the actual workout. This is frustrating because I have to take all the exercises off that require the use of the Band which means that I am not getting the full workout. Other then this I like the Wii game and the exercises.
Summary: This is the type of program that makes me hate working out. It's a full-on Western workout, which I know appeals to many people. Not me, though. I don't care to be stuck on a track when I'm at home. I need something a little more interesting. I was also annoyed that there was no ab work in this game. Not a very complete workout system. However, I will say that this is a great workout for your arms and legs. It's probably great for working out, if that's your goal.
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.
Summary: This game is fun and I like how it has a daily calender and tracks your progress. Pros: Different sport activities daily Heart monitor Provides a good work out Choosing the type of weights you use, I use free weights Cons: It has a hard time tracking some of the fast movements some of the exercises require like the foot fires exercise There is a long time between each exercise, estimated time for the workout is 33 mins but in reality you are done in 45 mins The...
Summary: I'm surprised by all the positive reviews. For some context: I'm a healthy 26 year old female. I go to the gym about 3x per week, doing a combination of running (2-3 miles) and lifting weights. If you fall into that category, this game will NOT be enough of a workout for you. I did the "high intensity" setting, and didn't even break a sweat after 40 minutes. As many others have said, the resistance bands are laughably low.
Summary: This is the BEST home workout program out there! I absolutely LOVE it and would reccomend it to everyone. It is like having a personal trainer at the gym, but being at home and you are getting the benefits as well!
Summary: This is an okay game, it was fun for a while but we got bored with it. I prefer Gold's Gym which is boxing. Sometimes the sensor is off, and it doesn't accurately judge what I am doing. The lunges for some reason never work with this game- I do it correctly but it always says it's wrong. For the price I prefer others.
Summary: so far ive only 'played' about 4 times, but it seems like ill get a really good workout from this game. im doing the 30 day challenge and plan on adding this game to my regular workout that i do (which is just running and pushups haha!) just to get it out there i am a 26 year old male, 5'10 and 3/4 and weight about 205lbs at the moment... the first 2 times i played i tried the game on medium and got a good workout.
Summary: I graduated from the WiiFit to this. I love the games of the Fit, but found that the strength training was a joke. I still use the Fit for cardio, as this game really has very little. I guess my main difficulties lie from doing extra reps because of my equipment or hand positions, and I also stepped it up a notch by getting stronger resistance bands. I hate running for runnings sake, so it sucks that a lot of this is concentrated on that.
