i did the 30 day challenge but found it very annoying as i seemed to have to forever try and get the remote in the right postition for it to recongise the move i made is a very good work out on the whole just harder work when its not senseing where you are, how ever i gave the wii up in place for a kinect problem solved!

  A Serious Workout.

Pros:
*Completely customizable workout routines to suit anybody
*INTENSE workout. It's not as easy as a lot of people would expect.
*Tracks progress for multiple users. Clearly displaying targets and progress.
*Very rewarding achievement system.
"FUN exercises that motivate and don't feel like a chore to do.

CONS:
*trainers are the most irritating people on the planet.
*Band is weak ( I'd recommend leaving out the band exercises and doing reps with light weights instead :) )
*Game focusses mainly on legs and cardio instead of upper body.

  Not as good as i expected

I bought this a week ago and have often come close to throwing the wii remote at the T.V through frustration. I have been attempting the 30 day challenge but have struggled to use the band and hold the remote and nun chuck at the same time resulting in being told by the lady to repeat the exercise several times. If anyone has any hints on how to rectify this problem I would be grateful for them as I've now gone back to using My Fitness Coach which at present I much prefer.

  Have your own gym in your living room!

I borught this a week ago, I am on my 4th day of the 30day challange! and felt it working the first day, my legs were aching so much the next day, so must be working, there are differnent levels and can be used with or without a wii board. Much cheaper than going to the gym, have saved so much, was spending 40 a month at the gym now have this for 15 and can have a real good work out in the lounge! Defo worth the money!

  GREAT WORKOUTS!!!

Best Fitness Game Ever! You Wont Be disapointed. user friendly, lets you customise your workout exercise by exercise, no more need for fitness dvds, watching the same thing each day, if you want to spend an hour boxing great, an hour jogging yeah or toning it's all here. exercise alone or with a friend, or try the 30 day challenge, dance workout-it's what the wii fit should have been! I will be buying the 2nd game Can't wait A+++++++++++++++++

It's only a week I bought it and I already feel it working. I feel more energized and get really motivated to work out and be more careful with my eating. For it amount of money, it definitly worth it !

  Work IT

Have bought quite a few if not most of the fit games on the wii and this has to be 5* rated, especially at the sale price. I am currently trying the 30 day work out and am feeling it. Its great because they are generally about 20mins as awork out but you can also design your own to concentrate on cardio, upper and lower body, or a combination of all of them. I am looking to increase the intensity and will then look at buying the next version, although this can keep you going for months and months.

  Good for the variety.

While not as enjoyable or polished as Wii Fit Plus, this is worth getting as an alternative.

The resistance band, while not very powerful, is certainly a better method than trying to treat the Wii Remote as a dumbbell. Plus, once you get the leg strap on tight enough, it certainly allows the game to follow your lunges and squats.

Essentially, this is a more interactive version of Fitness Coach; with the idea very much to stick to an exercise regimen, rather than dip in when the mood takes you. A fair amount of effort has gone into explaining and demonstrating the exercises, although I would say that either the female trainer is a midget, or she has a much longer nunchuck wire; as I found that mine became fully taut before I'd completed some of the moves properly.
