I've tried Wii Fit, Pilates and Zumba Fitness and this is the best for targeted, personalised weight loss / toning, without the cost of paying for a personal trainer at the gym! Only drawback for me is that I have to ask the dog to leave the room while I exercise or the camera gets distracted by him and tells me I'm going wrong!!
I have lots of fitness games on the wii and thought i would try this one out as it was such a good price and i though the motion tracking camera would be a new interesting feature. If you are looking for a workout which makes you sweat then this is for you. But if you are looking for excitement then i wouldnt bother. The workouts are extremely repetitive and quite boring and include simple jumping jacks, jogging, grapevine etc.... After about 10 mins you are sweating but i am bored out of my skull. If you are looking for variety and excitement then i would look at some of the other games like dance workout or zumba. The motion camera can also be extremely annoying as you have to make sure you are wearing colours that dont clash with the colours in your living room and you need quite a big area or part of your body will end up being missed off the camera else and it says that you are doing the exercise incorrect. Basically this game is like a boring aerobics class. If you wanna have fun whilst exercising then dont buy this game!
I got this after last week's Zumba disaster (not giving up on the whole fitness thing). It put a huge smile on my face after 1 workout! This is fantastic I have never sweated so much in my life. Even Eva is bearable (even though she's a virtual twig of a woman).
This is a really good workout, I especially like the way it tells you what is coming up next and bongs when it changes, that way if you dont fancy watching yourself jiggling around the living room you dont have to and you can still do the workout.
The only minor downside is having to wear contrasting clothing so the camera will pick my arms up properly. It took me ages to work this out running around switching lights on and off so it would stop telling me to watch my arms. I suppose on the plus side more clothing equals more calorie burning!
Bought this keep fit game after reading the reviews on play.com, and have enjoyed it very much. The coach is encouraging. I like that you can choose your own plan and what part of your body to work on. I have since bought another one for my friend. A good game and i feel that it is personalised to my abilities. Would reccommend. So far i have done 16 workouts, so game has well paid for itself instead of running to the gym!
I've used Wii Fit a lot over the last year or so, and enjoyed it, but wanted a bit of variety - so I took a look to see what was available. This looked like a pretty good package, so I thought I'd give it a go. In all honesty, I'm absolutely gobsmacked. The way the technology monitors the way I'm carrying out the exercises, and lets me know when I'm not in the correct position - not that long ago would have been science fiction!!!! And it certainly works me a lot harder than the Wii Fit does. The Wii is probably more fun in some respects - but this is a much more serious workout, and a lot cheaper than going to the gym!!!!
Downsides - the american accent of the instructor and the music. Upside - an excellent keep fit program.
This game is amazing, especially for people like me who need a bit of a push when it comes to having zero motivation. It gets your heart pumping, and your body sweating - really making you feel good about yourself after each work out. One of the best features is it also takes a snap of your body shape, takes your weight and height info...and then after every work out tells you exactly how many calories you would have burnt. Only problem I had with it is it sometimes doesn't pick up that you are doing the correct moves when you are, but this is a problem overlooked as long as you keep at it - at least you know you have carried on and are doing well. Highly recommended.
I think this is fantastic i normally get bored doing exercise, iv brought all sorts of stuff in past but this is the 1 for me, easy to burn cals u get to choose what ya wanna work on and if ya dont wanna listen to the music or beat from the wii then jus put on ya own music n jus go along to that, its also great with the fact that its motion cos u cant jus think ill stop for a minute cos it can see ya so tells u to carry on. I LOVE THIS.. x
