Resolutions do not work as advertised / Save your money!

Summary: I've been a FIRM exercise fan for many years. I was interested in trying something new and I like the exercises Jillian Michaels has participants in the Biggest Loser do, so I tried this Wii game. HUGE MISTAKE. One of the things I was interested in was the "Resolutions." It took me three times trying to "start" a resolution before I felt I had done it correctly.
Summary: I am soooooooooooo disappointed in this game. I am a true fan of Jillian Michaels, but this game is a true disappointment. Not only is it boring, but the activities are limited, personalizaton of the game is difficult and the game is void of a true interactive experience--all she ever tells you is that your activities are "awesome." If you are in need of good workout, purchase EA Sports Active...it's good, interactive and easy to navigate. That's my 2 cents...
Summary: When I read the reviews, I believed the game would be better this time around. NOT SO!! I do the exercises and then Jillian yells at me because the game is not registering my movements. It's extremely discouraging. Thanks but no thanks...
Summary: I was searching Amazon for a fitness game for Wii and came across Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum. I had not yet read the reviews on previous versions and didn't know how bad they were. I watched the teaser video and my first impression was that this was the game I needed. Jillian appeared to be very motivational. I ordered the game and when it arrived I immediately tried it out. It didn't seem to bad and I set up my fitness challenge for the next day.
Summary: I saw this game on a shopping network and decided to order it from Amazon. I got it and found it a little difficult to navigate and go in and out of settings and selections. I had it set on beginner and didn't appreciate her telling me she was wasting her time because I had just started using it and didn't know exactly how to do the exercise eventhough I did view the how to before doing it.
Summary: I was really disappointed in this game. I was expecting a game full of different workouts to choose from - there are only two pre-loaded workouts, neither of which are very long or interesting. The user is able (and encouraged) to create their own workout from the small list of different exercises, which can be confusing and discouraging to a person new to exercise.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Jillian Michaels, but this game is terrible. I like the concept, but it's very poorly thought through. For instance, every time you have a balance board exercise you have to step off and on and recalibrate the board. There is also a lot of times where you have to click Yes or No instead of just hitting a button to continue. The feedback from the controllers is also poor.
