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: 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 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: This game is good for the beginner and the advanced. It is as if you are really at the gym with a trainer showing you every move and how to do it perfectly. It even has a certification process as well as detailed descriptions and examples of each punch and combination. You have to throw hard punches and do them correctly because every punch counts towards gold in which motivates you to work even harder so you can purchase clothes and other objects for your character.
Summary: Get ready to sweat! This game offers a lot of variety, from different exercises to progressive boxing workouts. You can pick different songs to play in the background as you workout or choose "Random" and the program selects it for you. It has several instructors to choose from, both male and female. Through the calendar menu you can track total calories burned and the number of minutes you've exercised for the day. It's user-friendly and easy to understand.
Summary: I've had this game for about a year now and love it. It is a great workout, I use it about 2-3 times a week as part of my fitness routine. I've tried many fitness games and this is one of the better ones. It has many different levels to choose from depending on how much of a challenge you want. In shape boxing the routines never get boring becuase you have so many to choose from, it keeps you on your toes.
Summary: Bought this after reading the reviews and I am not dissapointed at all. Played for close to 2 hours and wound up sweating like crazy. Didn't realize how much time had passed by either until my husband told me how long I'd been playing. I've read from other reviewers that your arms hurt the next day so I guess i'll find out tomorrow how out of shape my arms actually are. There were 2 things I didn't like about the game and they are as follows: 1.
Summary: My brother introduced me this game in May 25, 2009 1:39PM, I was weight 230lb. Tried the basic mode for about 30 mins, half of my shirt got wet and I had trouble breathing. Since then I spent average 1 hour on the game, 4 days a week. In August 12, 2009 I weighted 198lb. The advance mode burns my fat pretty well, the game completely hooked me up. It remembers on the date you play, how long you play and how many calories you burned, what a way to keep you playing it.
Need Cardio Workout 2, or Plus or something -- can't get enough

Summary: I REALLY hope the maker of this game is planning a follow-up game. It is a GREAT workout, fun and I've gone through all of the levels so I'm ready for more. I've increased my average heart rate by 25% after 3 months of doing this game on avg 3x/week. If you're looking to increase your fitness as well as burn some calories this is for you. I'm an (unfortunately) overweight female, 36 yrs. old.
One of the highest calorie burns of the Wii fitness games!

Summary: I get why it's called a cardio workout rather than a boxing workout. It's caloric burn "packs a mean punch!" (pun intended) So, although it is a boxing workout, boy is it known for it's caloric expenditure! I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily caloric burn as it occurs. I mention this only because what I say is based upon measured accuracy rather than just "feeling" like my heart rate is up or not. And I take note of what burn I get during my wii games and fitness dvds.
