I love this game, it's great for me, it keeps me motivated and it's fun.This game was developed in collaboration with fitness expert Bob Greene, best known as Oprah's personal trainer, EA SPORTS Active provides a fun, inexpensive and easy to maintain regimen designed to encourage physical fitness and healthy living. A combination of a wide variety of interactive activities and exercises, linked together into an ever-changing circuit training routine targeting the muscles of the upper and lower body, as well as providing cardio for a healthy heart, it is the perfect exercise option for every member of a modern household. This was a great experience for me and I would recommend it to anyone.
As someone who hates exercising I enjoyed this program. I loved the boxing and the 30 day challenge option. I found it very user friendly and noticed results after two weeks! I wouldn't say this is a replacement for your cardio routine but a great addition, as running in spot gets boring fast. I would've liked to see some step classes (which were added to the second program). After doing the 30 day challenge on easy I noticed my thighs were more toned and slimmer, I also noticed an improvement in my conditioning. I found the resistance band suitable but you can always switch it out for a stronger one as you go along. The leg strap stayed in place and responded generally well with the program.
I have mixed feelings about this product. The game itself is very well made and includes a great variety of activities to keep you motivated and gives you a choice between how high level of a work out you're after. It also includes a "How do you feel today" type of quiz. My problem with this package is the accessories. The tension strap is very loose and gives next to no resistance, which is not very useful. The leg strap to hold the nunchuck slides out of place very easily. Both myself and my roommate had problems with it. We tried it over clothes, on bare skin, tighter, looser. It just did not want to stay in place. If there was an option to not use the nunchuck, that would be preferable.
Overall, this is a satisfactory product. However, due to the flaws in the accessories, I will not be purchasing this myself.
This workout program is great. I have a very busy schedule and it allows me to do my workout on a daily basis. You really feel as if you were followed by a personal trainer right in your living room! Two thumbs up!
I just started the 30-Day Challenge on the EA Sports Active in order to improve my general fitness. Although I haven't gotten very far yet I can already feel an improvement in my energy level and my sore muscles are testament to its effectiveness. The game offers low, medium and high impact with a wide-variety of exercises that help keep me interested!
