  1.  Excellent

    Posted: 

    I was getting a little demotivated with the Wii Fit and found it occasionally irritating (the repeating remarks by the trainer are just annoying) so I thought I'd try another fitness game so I had some variety.
    Had heard some good stories about the MyFitnessTrainer program. It's not anything like Wii Fit - for a start, it doesn't use any feedback from the controller or wii board. I wish it did! But it's really more like a fitness video that you can customise. And I do mean customise - when you set up a profile it'll test your fitness. You enter goals and what time/schedule you want to commit. You enter what equipment you have (like handweights, HRM) and it'll incorporate them into the program. Then when you start a workout, you can pick environment, music, and what sort of workout (cardio, upper/lower muscle, yoga, etc) you want.
    Then during the workout it'll often ask you feedback about the intensity level so you can increase or decrease. It's all pretty nifty really. If it used controller feedback to image if you're actually doing the exercises it would be perfect! As it is it's a very nice programme, but it won't trick you into exercising like the wii fit can.
