Users can also create their own custom workouts that vary in activity, duration and intensity, and the Wii Balance Board will add functionality to many exercises.
Great Workout Program9/9/2009
I originally bought the Wii Fit but I had to continually set up my own work out. I really didn't have the time to mess with it and soon lost interest. With Active I just go into the 30 day work out and do the program it has set up. The program changes daily and is challenging. I can still use the Wii Fit to track my weight, etc.
A good challenge9/9/2009
This is the kind of game/program I've been waiting for. The 30-day challenge keeps me motivated, and coming back every day. Do yourself a favor though, and get a different resistance band (check sporting goods) - the one that comes with the game is flimsy (mine lasted for 9 or 10 workouts before breaking). The option to customize your own workout program is great too - I was amazed at how many different exercises and sports are included. A really good value.
Great Exercise Game!7/28/2009
I really like the 30-day challenge part of this game. It keeps me interested because it comes up with different activities daily and not just the same ol' same ol'. It tracks calories burned, but so far I haven't noticed if it will track my weight (with the Wii board). Overall, I'm happy with this purchase and it keeps me coming back daily.
