Since the recent earthquake, my gym has become clogged with NEW members from all the other gyms that are no longer standing, the rescue, military, police, priests, and insurance adjesters from other countries, other trainers from other gyms and their clients...etc. It's an ANYTIME FITNESS....there's not that much space to begin with! So it finally got to the point where I don't enjoy working out at the gym anymore. That sucks big time. So I did some research and found that the EA Active 2 Wii game has been rated #1 for awhile so I have it. Did day 2 today and OMG....it's insane. my heart rate was 175..I don't think it's EVER been that high. It's a hard workout man! 30 minutes I burned about 230 calories and it's circuit training for the 9 week challenge that I started yesterday! So...I'll keep you posted on how it goes. I miss my gym due to the A/C and I love big weight machines and how they feel. This program from EA comes with a heartrate monitor, sensors, resistance band, and you can choose to use your balance board and weights with it too. I even used my swiss ball today for something due to my lower back issues. So...it's pretty cool.
I think the Wii Fit Plus is a really great introduction to interactive games and fitness, and I still love Just dance for fun cardio...but this is a whole different type of game...it's serious...it's fun and has some game segments like football and basketball training, but I haven't seen hula hoops or clowns if ya' catch my drift! It's a trainer and you! I drink a couple bottles of water during it as well....okay...I'm rambling...I am just impressed at the intensity from a game...I am 38 years old and I still remember when computers came out and I had ATARI! LOL
Have a great weekend!
