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.
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.
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.
Summary: As an overweight, 42 year old woman, I bought this game with a mixture of curiosity and dread. Boy, am I glad that I did! This is seriously fun, and after 1 month, I am developing arm and other muscles that I only dreamed about. My only complaint is the muzak music which is randomly annoying.
Summary: I read someone's review and saw that this game was ALL boxing. Since I enjoy the boxing on Wii Fit and Wii Active I jumped right on this one. This is better than both. I went through several of the "lessons" on my first day.
Summary: I've been using this for about 10 days now, and so far I like it a lot. I especially enjoy the shape boxing workout. It starts you off with a simple workout, jabs and crosses, and the workouts increase in intensity/duration and complexity the more you use it (by adding hooks, uppercuts, and other...
Summary: I bought this game when it first came out, and I use it more than anything else I own, including Wii Fit. The first time I used it I could barely move for several days, and eventually had to get a massage to take care of the last muscle in my back that just wouldn't stop hurting.
Summary: This game is essentially a boxing game with some other added-in exercises. It does a good job teaching the various moves, and it is fun and provides a great workout. For those of us who like the idea of boxing with Wii but were disappointed by the boxing provided by Wii Sports and Wii Fit, this is a...
Summary: I have My Fitness Coach and have been using it for the last 5 months; I got bored with it and finally bought Gold's Gym for variety. For the $[...] I spent, I thought that if I hated the "game," I would not feel as if I wasted money. I have been using this "game" 3-4 days a week for two weeks.
