That's good to know! :D We just bought the Wii Fit a few days ago and already I'm 'addicted' to where I was looking at both of those 'games' and wondering which one to get first! *lol*

I have the my fitness coach as well and I love it. I get bored easily so I have not done it in a while. Looks like I might buy both. Thanks for the feedback everyone! emoticon

I have the EA Active, Gold's Gym and Fitness Coach and Wii fit. I like the EA Active the best. I feel like I am getting a better all around workout with the EA Sports Active. I just started my second, 30 day challenge and I am not bored at all.
I usually finish my workout with the slower paced Wii fit. I really like all of the Wii fitness games.

I have them both and like them both. If I could only buy one, it would be Gold's Gym. I get a much better cardio workout in that program and it's very satisfying mastering the combination punches and footwork that are in the more advanced levels. But you have to enjoy the boxing metaphor!

And although you didn't ask, I'd throw My Fitness Coach into the ring here too. It's also a great workout program. I rotate through all three on a regular basis to keep my routines fresh.

I also have both...and I agree with what was said about the programs. The EA active is great for an all around workout. I like the Gold Gym, the boxing is a great stress relief. The active has a great 30 day challenge to keep you disciplined (every two days is a rest day). I struggle with the timing for the boxing, I have no sense of rhythm, but am hoping this helps.

Good luck

Kathy

Its hard to say one is better than the other because they have their own purpose. For a better overall body routine, the EA Active is better. If you are already doing a seperate strength/resistance routine and just want some extra cardio thrown in for fun, then the Gold's Gym would be better for you (assuming you like boxing).

The EA Sports Active has a wide range of upper body resistance exercises using an exercise band, a range of lower body exercises involving lunges and squats, and various sport simulations for cardio such as running, baseball, volleyball, boxing, and tennis.

The Gold's Gym is primarily a boxing game...made to be exercise, not just a game that happens to get you moving, but there are also mini "games" that include other exercises such as squats, leg lifts, and jump rope.

I have both of these games and they are both great. Not the frustration the Jillian Michaels game was like at all.

I would like to buy either or both of these games but wanted to get more info on these games. Can anyone give me some advice? I bought that stupid Jillian Michaels' game and it is terrible. It was such a huge waste of money. I don't want to make the same mistake twice.
