A must-have for fans of the TV show looking to lose a little weight themselves
16 July 2010
Summary: One of the nice things about video games is that they let you experience things you otherwise couldn't. Most of us will never fly into outer space or face down a major league pitcher throwing 99 MPH. Similarly, most of us will never be invited to the real Biggest Loser Ranch for personal training sessions with Bob and Jillian. But this Wii fitness title comes remarkably close. The scenery in the game should be familiar with anyone who's seen the TV show.
Summary: This is a refreshing change of pace from some of the other Wii products. I wouldn't say that I would completely use this alone, but it makes a great companion to the Wii Fit Plus, and I also own the EA Sports Active. I like the way the BL mixes things up. You never know what is in store for you each day, which keeps it interesting. I also like the "calorie counter"...while I know it is not exact...it does make you remain conscious about your food choices.
Summary: I had previously rented it at Blockbuster. I loved it immediately. Not only is it sooo much better than the Wii Fit...its consistent. Meaning my heartrate doesn't go down cuz I have to choose the exercise from the menu. It has options for warmup, the exercise, and cool down right there all together. It also has recipes on there that are easy to follow and very healthy. I absolutely love this product.
Summary: The first time that I really sat down and watched the Biggest Loser (BL) it was one of the most inspirational shows I had ever seen. I was out of shape, certainly nowhere near any of the contestants, but not where I'd like to be. I started working out, particularly when watching the show, on an elliptical and with weights.
Summary: I'm about to get rid of this game but I wanted to write a very honest review. I have been a big exer-gamer, and I've lost about 40 lbs so far just by using my Wii, adjusting my diet and going on cardio walks. So I wanted something new having used a bunch of other games. I had my eye on Biggest Loser for a long while, and thought about buying it, so when it went down in price on here, I caved. Upon starting it, I was excited to see the variety of exercises.
Summary: I decided to buy this because I LOVE the show!! At first I was ecstatic about the Wii BL game and I used it daily. I LOVE the challenges that go with it and I like that you can pick an intensity level and a time limit, I like that you can just work a certain part of your body and I like that the exercises don't kill you. You do sweat and get a work-out and it's fun to be reminded of the show.
Summary: We decided to buy this to help us lose weight the healthy way, by working out. We try to do it 3-4 times a week. This is an intense workout that will kick your booty! We love it but as a reminder, if you're very overweight, don't try keeping up with them yet. Work your way up! Love it!!! In 3 wks. my husband has lost 17 lbs. and I've lost 12 lbs.!
Summary: I found myself in the position that I had gained almost 100 pounds since getting married almost two and a half years ago. With a baby on the way, I thought now was as good a time as any to start losing weight. I set my goals small and started with the Wii Fit but never really felt like I was getting the workout that I needed. Enter "The Biggest Loser". This game is fantastic! After the first use, I could tell that my muscles were actually working.
Summary: I was in pretty decent shape before getting pregnant, and have had difficulty getting back in to shape after her birth (she was a BIG baby). I requested this game for Christmas after trying the Wii Fit first with some good effect (its fun, but doesn't really give a strong workout), and learning how difficult it is to get to the gym with a baby. I am a fan of the show, so decided to try the program after learning that it gives you a set workout.
