Summary: Our family has only done one workout so far, but I wanted to get my thoughts out regarding the game to help any potential buyers. I picked up the game based on the positive reviews on Amazon so far, and I think the good points stated there are generally correct. I did my workout for the day on medium intensity while my wife chose the beginner intensity.

Summary: I just received the game from Amazon today. I popped it in, and decided to start with a 4 week fitness plan. My first workout was classified as light (19 minutes), and then an 8 minute cool-down. I really liked it a lot. I felt like it was challenging enough to get started and I was sweating by the end of my workout. (Even though it was "light", it still makes you sweat.
Summary: I purchased this game because of the other reviews I had read that stated that it was better than the other Wii fitness games such as EA active and Wii Fit. I have only worked out on it once so far, but it is soooo much better than the others. I didn't find myself in a squat for two minutes because the wii remote didn't register my movement like in EA active. I did the light workout because I didn't know what to expect and I'm glad I did.
Summary: I just bought the game a couple of days ago and have used it each day since its purchase. Thus far, the pros and cons: I have bought several of the Wii fitness type of games and this one is the first game that has provided a tough, contiguous workout that does not require numerous lengthy stops to change equipment or to navigate to a different section for a new exercise (such as in the Wii Fit game).
Summary: I have had the balance board and Wii Fit for almost a year. I was not using the Wii Fit program because it was so cumbersome, going to menu to select each exercise was a pain. The Biggest Loser game sets you up with a workout routine, choose from full body, upper body, lower body, core or yoga. It is so smooth and natural, it is like being in a class. I worked up quite a sweat from my routine and was surprised at how sensitive the balance board and wii remote were.

Summary: Want a workout like you see on the Biggest Loser show? Bob and Jillian are at the Biggest Loser Ranch just waiting to whip you into shape. I've always been a fan of the show, especially seeing the results. This game is probably the closest you're going to get, in the privacy of your own home, of actually being there.
Summary: After working out with EA Sports for some time, I thought I was ready for Jillian and Bob to rough me up a bit. They haven't let me down. This software is filled with fitness tips, calorie counters for foods (along with suggestions for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks) and also comes with one month of free Biggest Loser Club. You can choose a Beginner workout, Intermediate or Expert.
Summary: I was skeptical about this game at first...there was always something missing from all the other exercising games on the wii. Although wii fit plus is sooo much fun...They REALLY packed this game with everything that I thought was missing from all the others. You can customize a routine...(by the way there are tons of exercises to choose from) or choose a daily workout they prepare for you. The balance board option is sooo responsive..
