I was deciding whether to buy wii fit, or EA Sports Active, and after several recommendations from friends, i decided to get the EA Sports Active. I'm certainly very impressed with it so far. I'm one week into the "30 day challenge" and i'm already starting to feel and see results. The game (or should i say fitness programme) starts you off by creating your body profile and then choosing a fitness instructor to take you through the course.
The 30 day challenge involves a range of exercises to be carried out on a daily schedule (you have days off as well), and your results are tracked and saved so you can see your progress later. It includes cardio training and body sculpting, and a range of exercises using a resistance band (supplied).
I'm reasonably fit to start off with, but found it hard to find the time to get to an actual gym, so this is ideal. I started the 30 day challenge on the "moderate" setting, and after 30 minutes i felt like i had done a REAL workout!
There are lots of variations in the exercises to keep you interested, and the fitness instructor really keeps you motivated. Looking forward to seeing the results after the 30 days!
