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...
Summary: The sports are just like other sports games. You don't have to really do anything, just flick your wrists at the right times. I bet you could sit on the couch, drink a gallon of soda from BK, huff down a bigmac and still play some of these games successfully. haha Final thought: don't be lazy.
Pros: Maybe a nice workout for someone who doesn't know anything about proper technique.
Cons: The rubber band thing is awkward to use. And you use it for just about everything. The rubber band would be better if it came attached to the cuffs. Unfortunately it does not, and you have to tie it to the cuffs where it flings out at the worst times. NOTE TO BUYERS: don't leave your kids on the ...
Summary: I recommend anyone starting this who isn't used to a workout to start on the lowest difficulty. I made the mistake of starting on medium and after the first session (lasting about 1/2 an hour), I could barely stand up. My legs were like jelly! You'll get a good cardio workout from this.
Summary: Though Wii Fit has fun balance games, this is far superior for exercise and motivation, and you don't even need the balance board. In fact, the "balance board-enhanced" activities are nearly universally worse than their non-balance board counterparts.
Summary: All you need to know about this product is that it works. No it wont really make working-out much more fun or enticing than it already is but it will keep you motivated to keep going and provides you with a good set of exercises which you can do at home.
Summary: Owning both WiiFit and EA Sports Active (SA), I found SA to be a more serious fitness product. As well as using the balance board, the elastic ribbon provides further interactivity with stretches, boxing and arm exercises.
Summary: No Need to go to Fitness Centre.., now you can learn and exercise at your own house. You simulate Running, Jumping, bicept and tricept exercises. You can learn boxing, basketball even tennis... all in one game. Simply good game and make you health allday !!
Summary: The daily journal helps keep you honest and makes you think about the diet and activity decision you made during the previous day.
Pros: Best workout game/video ever! All you have to do is look at the pretty lights on the screen and follow simple instructions and < 30 minutes later you've had a world class workout! My wife and I are 5+ workouts into the 30 Day Challenge and are feeling and looking better than we have in a while.
Cons: None. Anyone that says the restistance band is too weak, try layering it between your feet to make it "shorter" and it really starts resisting.
