I think this game is well worth the $60 price. I would suggest purchasing weights instead of a band. They are about $20 for either 2 or 4 lbs, made by Everlast and the controllers fit perfectly inside. Much easier and free than using a band, but that is my own opinion. Also, consider going wireless, mine has smacked me in the face many times.
End to end the leg strap about 30 inches long. My upper right thigh is 28 inches and I can get it on and tighten it up some once its on. The closure is done with velcro. It comes with an additional 3? inch piece of velcro which the directions show how to use it to "shorten" the length, but it can just as easily be used to lengthen it a bit too. Extra length would be easy to do with a roll of velcro from your local craft store or walmart cut to whatever size you may need.
The resistance band ehh...its kind of wimpy, but Im sure they wanted to have in the package one that anyone could use. I wound up replacing it with a stiffer band from a leslie sansone walking dvd. When you open up the EA Active package, the handles are separate from the band, you put it together yourself. So its fairly easy to just attach a different band in the first place or to switch them out later if need be.
I've been thinking about buying EA Active to add to my Wii exercising. I had a couple of questions that I'm hoping someone can help with. Did anyone have any problem with the leg strap not fitting? I'm a size 22 and I just worry that it won't be big enough. Also, is the resistance band any good? I've gotten exercise kits before where the resistance band was very cheaply made or just too short/small to be usable. Thanks!!
