  • Summary: I got this as a christmas present. I have been trying to lose weight so I was SUPER excited to try this game. I even opened it before we had the Wii. BIG Mistake. As the other reviews state, the game does not pick up on many of your movements which is extremely frustrating. I can do the movements over and over and over, and the person just stands there. I guess you can get an okay workout, but dont plan on the game keeping track of anything...

  • Summary: Bought product two wks after getting my wii, have back problems and thought the wii would motivate me with some strength training, which it did. Never thought games could do that! Heard great things about Jillian Michaels and her exercises that caused biggest weight losses for Bigest Loser Show. Thought it would be vigurous non stop exercise just like a workout video...far from it. It is no better than what came with wii fit board.

Left the drawing board WAY too soon!

  • Summary: Although this game was fun, and I DID sweat in the 30 minutes that I played it, I was equally frustrated with the huge lag time between my movements and my character's. During the punching bags, log jump and the dodging the punching bags exercises, my character didn't even move!! I wonder if Jillian even tried it out before she approved its production.

Why Jillian why!!

  • Summary: So I tried Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum 2009 for Wii. I really wanted it to be good, but here's what I experienced: -It's not user friendly like Wii Fit. It was hard to figure out how to jog using the balance board, you have to shift your back heels in sync with your arms. This is definately a step down than even running in place on Wii Fit.

  • Summary: My husband bought this for me because it was on sale and he thought I would enjoy it. I was excited too! I didn't think it was worth even the sale price! I was dissapointed it didn't make you do more. Maybe I don't know all about the game yet but I didn't enjoy it and it didn't make me feel like I was working out at all. I agree with the other review...I can march in place on any game.....wanted more....didn't get much!

  • Summary: I was disappointed in the Jillian M. Fitness for the Wii. Knowing how Jillian is on the Biggest Loser, and how other Wii workout games are, this one falls short. If you like running in place, this is the one for you. For the workout, you do 3 things run in place, select something on the path, and run in place again. I was looking for something cardio, that would keep my interest this does not. But like everything this is only my opinion.

  • Summary: I had mixed reviews on this game. I really thought it looked like it would give me a great workout. I had read the other reviews and have to say if you don't like to run please don't get this game. I don't mind running and have kids so I thought this would be something that I could do at home when they went to bed. I was disappointed that when I went to the tips each time the game would freeze up on me.

  • Summary: This product did not meet my overall expectations. I was disappointed with the fact that my actual movements do not appear on the screen like other Wii games. I'm getting a great workout, but it would be nice if the game actually mirrored my movements. I thought there was a glitch in the system or I was doing something wrong until I read other customer reviews. I do not feel this product is worth the money spent.

  • Summary: OK, I read all the negatives, but while looking to save my life from my weight I decided to try it anyway. The reviews are right, graphics are weak, it doesn't always register my attempts to "do" the exercise, there is little choice, and it tells me I'm doing great even when it isn't recognizing my tries. But in using it I have discovered a couple of things: 1. Don't use the balance board--it catches more of my attempts without the board than it did with. 2.
