  • Summary: I read all the reviews and was hesitant to buy this, but decided I couldn't pass it up for the price. And I am glad I bought it. The game has great, fast paced exercises, it works with or without a board and I always work up a good sweat every time. I like the Tips rewards also! My board reads all the time, I think maybe because my sensor bar is wireless and it has to do with the placement of it. So maybe try moving your sensor bar around and see if that helps.

  • Summary: I've only done the cardio portions on this game so far. My heart rate was definitely up there and my calves were feeling the burn. I was wiped out after only 20 minutes. I do have to say that you do have to almost jog in place on the Wii Board in order to make the person move on the screen and the way you have to swing your arms for the sensor to pick it up is a little confusing, but I figured it out.

  • Summary: I bought this game with the intent of adding a different element to workouts on the Wii... I saw in photos is had things like monkey bars, running through tires, etc - just different than you see in other games... so I bought this for that purpose. I really enjoy that part of the game, however, I do not like the 5 minute jog you have to do every single time before you get to do the "cool" stuff... plus you end up having to do it at the end as well...

Not too bad, but could have been better

  • Summary: It wasn't great, but it wasn't too bad. I played on the fat burning easy and medium for fifteen minutes today, so take that into account with my review. I enjoyed what I got to do. Many people have commented that the characters aren't as customizable as hoped, but you can at least pick a few things to change about your avatar.

  • Summary: You do get a work out on some of the activities, but there are ways to cheat as my 13 yr old found out. Some things didn't work as well as should have and we replaced remote batteries and re-read instructions. I really like the rowing and monkey bars -- you really feel them both after a while. Jillian repeats the same couple of lines for each activity which gets old quick and music is a little lame but you can change from dance, country, etc.

  • Summary: I've only used the game twice and so far like it. It reminds me of a workout at Curves. You run/jog/walk for a bit than do some strength training. Some of the activities are hard to get use to and get the game to recognize your controllers but I'm not sure if that is just me or the game. After the first time I used it, I felt the results in my inner thighs. Going to use it again tonight against my friend.

  • Summary: I really like this product and I find that if you do the movements full out, the way your instructed to do so, you will see results and feel like you've been working out. The problem for me was the Wii sensor not picking up all of the movement you do (if your doing them right). So if you want a good score and don't care about the workout your not really doing much just moving your arms slightly.

Great Workout

  • Summary: I was really concerned with the number of negative reviews that I read right after I purchased Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009. Fortunately I did not let the reviews discourage me from trying the game and now have been using this game for over 2 weeks and really do find that it gives me an excellent workout.
