At the end of November there's an expansion pack coming out for this game - EA Active - with more exercises

I haven't used this recently (since getting a dog) but both my wife and I found it very good if you're looking to do some exercise in your own home. Wii Fit is (was) fun for a while but not really effective as a means of excercising - unless of course you count leaning forward a bit as exercise - in which case no console based exercise programme is going to of any help.

Now 24.99 at play!

Now down to £24.99!

I have just ordered this for my Mum for Christmas having just found it on Amazon. I honestly don't understand why this deal hasn't gained more interest. On Amazon, out of 247 reviews, it's received an average of 4.5 out of 5. The reviews are very positive too - this one in particular stood out for me:

I love this product, I'm overweight from eating too much and slothing in front of the computer. I have since thought that fitness games would inspire me to get back into fitness like the good old days when I was a teen.

Here is what I found between the 3 products I tried out.

3rd place Wii Fit:
*tracked progress,
*wii fit board takes weight measurements
*Slightly tailored sessions
*Fun games
*The beeps and squeals get tiresome and repetitive (maybe less so for a younger user)
*inconsistent readings on how I am performing
*Games seem too easy and mostly don't work up a sweat.
*limited rest/workout calender.

2nd place Fitness coach:
*Somewhat inspires me to come back daily
*Personal trainer
*tracks progress
*limited workout/rest days system
*Trainer goes offbeat and makes her/him hard to follow
*no rewards
*trainer is excruciatingly repetitive
*trainer doesn't respond to your actual movement (doesn't use any equipment that feeds your movement into the wii)

1st place! EA's Active
*Detailed Reward system
*Tracks progress
*each exercise has detailed movement tracking
*Uses wii fit board, bands(included), weights, for some exercises
*Dietary and lifestyle progress/reporting (if you want it)
*great games to distract you from a tough workout -I always feel knackered and well worked after a session but somehow got though it trying to achieve the goals set.
*ingenious workout system. Choose to have a number of workouts a week OR hours per week/session OR 30 day challenge with rest days that work around days you need off OR set certain days per week
*Make sure you have fresh batteries and hold the remotes exactly as shown in the video - often it would catch me out and tell me I wasn't doing the moves right when it was just the way I was holding the remote.
*Doesn't measure weight with wii fit board.
*Resistant bands supplied were too easy (purchased some more resistant ones).

I hope there is some useful info in there for anyone who is undecided.
