    Wow what a workout!!, May 19, 2009

    This review is from: EA Sports Active – Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
    Ok, so I was hesitant about spending $60 on a workout game when I already owned three of them – all exclusively for the Wii. After my first 50 minute workout though I can truthfully say that this trumps all of them. It is like Gold’s Gym, the Wii Fit, and My Fitness Coach all rolled into one. After my workout, which included everything from boxing to dancing to running to shooting hoops, I was sweating profusely and feeling great!

    What I liked:
    – Like the Wii Fit, it incorporates the Balance Board.
    – I get to pick my exercises – unlike on the My Fitness Coach
    – The graphics were good, the track, courts, etc. actually made me feel a little like I was actually there.
    – The running was everything the Wii Fit running was not. It counted my calories and seemed a little more responsive that the Fit.
    – I appreciated the feedback I received when doing the stretching exercises… This I missed in the My Fitness Coach- there was no sensor to tell me if I was squatting to high, not jumping in the right rhythm, etc. With EA SA the control that was strapped to my thigh was able to tell the game when I was not doing something right – giving me the opportunity to correct my form.

    – I also like the fact that you can work out with a friend.

    Cons:
    The resistant band is weak – for me anyway but that can be easily corrected with a inexpensive trip to Wal-mart.

    I discovered that I may also be buying a wireless nunchuck… the wire was constantly in my way.

    It doesn’t track my weight loss.

    It’s not really a con but I wish there were step aerobics. It could have easily been worked in.

    Overall impression: I’m glad I broke down and paid the $$$ for this game. It far surpasses My Fitness Coach, the Wii Fit, and Gold’s Gym (though I will probably continue to use Gold’s Gym for the boxing routines and the wii fit to track my weight loss). It’s hard core, but I feel it will definitely give me my desired results.

    Finally a workout game that REALLY works me out!, May 19, 2009

    This review is from: EA Sports Active – Nintendo Wii (Video Game)

    Initial Impression
    Wii Active is AWESOME! AWESOME!! I was holding out big hopes for this game because while I love wii fit, golds gym coach and my fitness coach, this game offers full use of the wii motion controls and balance board for feedback. If you do not have the balance board, the game is just as useful.The balance board makes some exercises more “total body” and intense but the game was designed to be used without it. This game is honestly what I thought I was getting when I bought the wii fit! This game is more of a gym style workout consisting of strength exercises with resistance, cardio, and sports drills. There is no yoga in this game nor is there any abdominal work (which I find kind of strange because they were pretty thorough with everything else).

    Intensity/Sports Drills
    I just finished my second full 40 minute workout and it was great! I feel like I just came back from the gym. I was very surprised by how much I enjoyed the sports drills.I dont enjoy the tennis or baseball on wii sports. But the sports drills on Active are really intense, you actually have to jump to do volleyball serves and the motions are exactly as they are when you play the game.

    Sports included are Baseball (pitching and batting and catching), volleyball (serving, bumping and setting), Basketball (so far I’ve just seen shooting and passing), Skating (with leg lifts), Tennis (serving, fore-shots, volleying,backshots). Basketball shooting involves twisting to grab a ball and then making a jump shot. It really gives a virtual reality feel to sports exercises. During kickboxing you are able to use the balance board to kick the heavy bag and do knee ups which really got my heart rate up. During running exercises, you are placed on a track and the game has you alternate between running, walking, knee ups, and kick ups. I really felt as though I had a coach with me. I used to work out with a personal trainer and this really had the same feel.

    Balance Board Use
    You ARE able to use the balance board with this game. For the sports drills it made me (uncoordinated as I am) less accurate but it did incorporate more total body usage. For instance, in baseball when you catch you do a side lunge before you reach up or out to catch the ball. There is an option to use the balance board with all the sports drills. I havent seen any resistance exercises that used the balance board though.

    High Intensity Exercises
    There are some hi-intensity or slightly more advanced strength exercises included such as jumping lunges, jumping squats, squat and hold, side to side jumps, bicep curl with shoulder press, bicep curl with kickback, lateral raise with row, etc.

    Setup
    After setting up the resistance band and leg strap (easy, took 2 minutes tops) I had to set up a profile. There was great variety on how personalized you can make your avatar look with very cool outfits to choose from. It doesnt let you really change the height of your avatar or age (in appearance) so when I set up avatars for my kids, they looked like adults. You set your goals such as how many calories you want to burn over a period of x number of days, how many workouts you want to complete per week or month, and how many hours you want to workout per week or month. I was surprised it didnt include weight loss goals but then I guess it would have to assume you have the balance board and it tries to stay away from that.

    30 Day Challenge
    I chose the 30 day challenge simply because it seemed like the quickest way to get started. The range of activities was really astounding and I enjoyed the entire workout. It was great to have the game give feedback on form. Before you do every exercise the first time, it automatically shows you a video on proper form. While I was familiar with most of the exercises, the videos are useful because it shows you how to hold the remote for each exercise. You can skip them if you really want. After you watch them the first time, you don’t have to see it again. The exercises included cardio, sports drills, resistance upper and lower exercises and track. Even if you choose the 30 day challenge, you can still just select individual workouts as well, but I found the challenge to be a great motivator because it will take me through all of the exercises…not just my favorites.

    Pre-Set/Customized Programs
    You can also choose from more than 50 pre-set programs such as 30 minute lower body, 20 minute sports drills, 40 minute whole body, 60 minute upper body hard or easy, 40 minute cardio only, athletic exercises, 30 minute low-impact, 50 minute hi-impact and many others. Literally, I don’t see potential for getting bored with your exercise routine anytime soon with this game. You can also create your own program by just picking the exercises you like. You can customize it further in that you can choose the duration and intensity for each individual…
