Super fun way to workout

Summary: I LOVE this. It is challenging and interesting. It has many options and settings so you can really get a good workout no matter what fitness level you're at. Of course, like any fitness workout, you get out what you put in. Keep good bounce in your rhythm, punch strong and keep your abs tight. Fun features are the music selection and shopping. I also love unlocking new things.
Summary: I got this after years of using my Wii Fit Plus and finally deciding to expand my exercise video game collection to two! This is an excellent, excellent game for those who don't want a drill sergeant or a motivational speaker when it comes to instruction. This is great for anyone who likes exercising in the privacy of their own home and at their own pace. This is one of my favorite, most used purchases from Amazon in a long time.
Summary: I also own EA Sports More Workouts, Active II, and NFL Training Camp. I like them all but I find this a worthy addition. I enjoy the variety of punching during the whole session and the relatively quick workouts that get the job done when I don't have an hour to invest. I like the pre-designed workouts and the ease of picking certain exercises to do if I want an a la carte session.
Summary: I will preface this by saying I am an experienced martial artist and someone who knows how to throw a variety of PROPER punches the correct way. The reason I bring this up is because there is a sort of division between sports and/or exercise and martial arts or boxing in this particular case.

Summary: Gold's Gym Cardio Workout is primarily a boxing training game. There are some warmup workouts, but the game focuses on training to box. If you love boxing, then you'll be set. If you're not a fan of boxing, then it makes sense that this probably isn't the cardio system for you. You really want to have two controllers to use this - not just a controller and a nunchuck.
Summary: This is one of the best reviewed wii exercise games on the market, and when I received it from Amazon, I quickly learned why. You will learn how to box, have fun, and get a good workout. I hope this software company continues to update this game.
Summary: I got this so I could get a decent workout while getting my video game fix, and it hasn't disappointed. Unlike the boxing on the Wii Sports (which I had been using before), it works everything rather than just the arms; my whole body hurt from day one. Combining this with my diet has helped my weight loss goals greatly. The Daily Workout is nice. You can choose three different levels depending on how long you want to play.
Summary: I bought this through amazon after being bored to tears with my Wii Fit Plus. I am not understanding why some say this routine doesn't burn enough calories? Here's my experience: I've been using it for 2 weeks straight and I do it every day. Yes it's mainly boxing. That aside, it's still a heart pounding sweat inducing workout once you get past the beginner stage. It counts your punches and an approximation of how many calories you've burned.
Summary: I have only been playing this game for a few days, but I can say it really gives me a workout. I use this game and the Wii Fit daily, and I get more of a work out playing this game for 10 minutes than I do playing Wii Fit for a half hour. It really gets your heart pumping and makes you work up a sweat. The game is made up of various workouts in 3 difficulty leves. There are also a few additional games. Overall, the workouts are fun & really get you moving!
