Summary: This really is a great workout. The fitness test is great as you get a personalised workout afterwards. If you want to amend some of the details of this i.e. duration or muscles being focused on, you can. It really is like having a personal trainer in your living room. There are so many different exercises to chose from you should never get bored.
Summary: I like this game but there is a lot of hand changing with the wii control and also with the balance board but I have got used to that and just keep exercising until the next routine starts, lots of water sips as well, but I ignore them mostly. Still think Nintendo could do better, not sure these games are ever tested before they are released !!!
Summary: This is one of my best purchases. It is fun and you can set up your goals quite easily. You can have Gillian and Bob create your work out or you can do them individually. I especially like the choice of what areas you want to work out most and the range of times that are given. This helps if you have a busy week but still would like to do a work out. There is'nt much choice of words and little more effort could have gone into giving Gillian and Bob more things to say.
Summary: After reading various reviews, decided to take chance with this and I wish I hadn't. After going through the initial set-up and fitness challenge the game decided on areas it thought I needed to work on and I had no way of changing the exercises (it had decided I needed to work on upper body) after about 30mins I had to delete my profile and start again using the pre-programmed workouts, but the continuous stopping in beteween exercies and have a drink was very...
Summary: I have found the Biggest Loser surprisingly fun to use. I like how the exercises are not repeated, and how you can do extra exercises if you want. Looking forward to the next workout. Good value for the CD.
Summary: Love the show, and love the game. This has a real competitive edge so it makes me push myself harder. One criticism, which I knew beforehand as others have mentioned it on reviews, that the wii struggles to pick up the skipping movement, so you have to go hell for leather for it to register - on the plus side, it means that you work extra hard!
Summary: I got this because I was feeling too intimidated at the gym. Plus I wanted to be able to workout at home and not have to keep traveling to the gym and pay gym membership fees when I was going less and less. This is a fantastic workout, but you have to stick to it and do the exercises properly. If something hurts too much the next day, it's bad form or posture whilst exercising. I always get a kick out of winning the weekly challenge.
