My wife has wanted the WII Fit ever since we got the WII. I was watching Fox News one day and they were talking about the EA Sports Active and I was interested. So my wife had her birthday and I got the EA Sports Active instead of the WII Fit.
I don’t have the Wii Balance Board but read that you don’t need to to play the EA Active. Having said all this last night I tried the game/workout for the first time. I have to admin that it was enjoyable and it was a good workout. Being my first time I setup my person and selected the easy muscle toning workout. The workout took about 27 minutes even with the explinations. I worked up a mild sweat and could feel a mild muscle burn. The workout was not overly difficult or strenuous.
Being completely out of shape I could feel a little soreness this morning when I woke up. I highly recommend the EA Sports Active and soon I will be taking the 30 day challenge. There are a lot of features in this game that my wife and I haven’t even started to explore. I think this will help us get in shape and has a lot of options to keep you interested and motivated.
