EA Sports Active: More Workouts
Very Good EA Sports!
I love it! The original was really good and the more workouts was a great way to continue the fun and fitness! I hope they continue to add workouts as time goes by. I enjoy the new location, on a resort, which is even better then the first location. The new workouts are fun and enjoyable while still getting your heart pumping. The music is better also. Some of the workouts are so inventive and creative which helps you stay commited. the only downfall Ive seen is that you do repeat the workouts often and only add new to your routine a couple at a time. It doesnt take away from the experience though and actually helps you get comfortable with the moves and gives you the ability to improve your form. I also love that you can do a six week program instead of four. And you can choose which days you want to workout, that comes in handy. I would and have recommended this (Active More Workouts) and the original (Active) to others.
Skeptical At First...But.....
So I own Wii Fit Plus and I have to say, I AM IMPRESSED! I am all about some workout and though I bought this game used.. it did not come with the leg band or elastic stretch band... I love it. I just started with the whole ''weight loss plan'' but I am already hooked/obsessed. I LOVED the course where you run and then do other activities. I really feel like I had a good sweat going. I did the 6 week challenge (mainly to push myself) so we will see what happens but I have NOTHING but good things to say about it thus far, GREAT job EA!
More fun than the first!
This is a fun workout. I enjoyed the first one and this one is even better. I love the island background. I have problems with game not recognizing my movements, but not as much as the first version. I love the varability. The added stretching is very nice. The running section now has an obstacle course that really gets your heart rate up there! The music is more diverse this time, but I think I liked the tunes better in the first one. There are more ways to personalize your fitness profile as well. This game is not to be missed if you love your Wii and are serious about fitness. I work out most days aof the week and enjoy this workout so much, that I sometimes do it twice a day. There is a six week challenge in this game as opposed to the 30 day challenge from first version. I highly recommend this game
I just purchased this game used. It did not come with the leg band or elastic stretch band. Important to note because they are required to do some of the exercises.
I have never owned any of the EA Sports games but with this buy, I think I'm a new fan. The game itself is really great. You can customize your workouts and there is a "6 week challenge" option. It's also great because you can have a workout partner (my daughter was ready to go) and the game keeps track of your weight (measured by the Wii Fit board if you have one...but not necessary), days you workout, how many minutes you exercised, etc.
The workouts themselves range from beginner to intermediate to advanced. I used the beginner level and felt a good workout nevertheless. I can't wait to move through the 6 week challenge and see what type of results I might get!!
One thing that might get people a little aggravated is the sensing of the remotes. You have to be really diligent about how you hold the remote or place it in the leg strap. If it's off a little bit the sensing bar will not acknowledge your movements. That said, just make sure you have the remotes exactly as you are told. ;)
Overall I definitely recommend this one to anyone looking to get moving a bit. Great game...I'm impressed!
Worst the price
Got the game before Christmas, and since it was a used one, I did not pay too much money on this game. It is a nice work out game. Users can customize their very own work out level and type of work out that they want to do when there is no work out scheduled that day. Compared to Zumba, I prefer this one. The music is much better, I don't understand Spanish anyway, and I loved the resort background. Also, unlike Zumba, this game does not require a lot of room, so if you live in a campus housing or tiny studio apartment this work out game will be a great game for you.
