What about eBay? I'm sure you can get one there. I think I read that some of the DDR games won't accept the nicer quality mats, you have to buy the same mat that came with it, so just look for the one you have. It's funny you said that because when I was talking with dh about it last night I said I wasn't sure if I should get the second mat. I'd hate for it to be able to be 2 players and not have it. But on the other hand, I don't know if anyone would do it with me! My son might but he'd rather spend his video game time on Mario!

I wish we could get a 2nd ddr mat it's fun with the walk it out you can use and spot on the mat and you can do different stepping styles. honestly when is nintendo going to just let people buy the wii board and ddr mat without buying the games. I looked on their site and couldn't find how to buy an extra one.

i like boxing, i haven't used gold's gym enough yet. but from what i have used it does make you sweaty.

Mouster, I think there's a place to find out how long you worked out, like in the calendar or punch diary or something?? But it shaves some time off.

Grafton, yup, I'd definitely recommend GG over MFC. MFC is great but more like an areobics workout. Kinda like doing a step video kinda feel for me. I liked it, it leaves you overall a bit sweaty but GG leaves you a sweaty mess, and that's what I'd prefer. Time goes faster for me with GG also, a big thing for me because truthfully I don't like exercising. I want it done without being bored and with a big calorie burn! I'd rather work out harder if I'm gonna spend the time doing it.

I came soooo close to buying a DDR game last night but didn't. I just got EA last week!

I do like boxing so I may like GG! Would you recommend GG over My Fitness Coach (1st one)?

I ended up losing money with my return, but in the end I was happy I wasn't left with junk. KWIM?

thanks for the reviews on Your Shape, the idea looks great but i read the reviews on amazon and it only got 3 stars.

I just bought gold's gym and have done it a few times. I like it. I wish it would give me the time i worked out. but i was sweating. i still want to get fitness coach the first one but haven't. Also there's another new game coming out that's like tennis or something, that looks fun.

Good for you for being so persistant with them Jill!! I was very surprised when I bought that first Jillian Michael's game that they let me return it at the store. I went back the next day and said it was horrible and they said everyone was saying that so they were taking them back!

I love GG!! It's one of my top favorites. Great workout. I should qualify it though, I guess. I love it because I love boxing. The game is entirely boxing, so if you like boxing, then get it! No kickboxing, just different sequences of different punches, and a little running and squatting.

Oh, and welcome to the team! emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I just joined your team. My name is Jill and I'm very interested in sharing information on the various workouts.

I had the Your Shape with Jenny McCarthy. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Conceptually it's a great idea, but the camera does not pick up your movements, if you're wearing the wrong color it won't pick up your movements, if there is too much or too little light it won't pick up your movements. I had such an issue in trying to return it, I almost gave up. However, I appealed to Ubisoft's customer service department and after A LOT of arguing my point, they finally allowed me to return it. They sent me the My Fitness Coach 2 to replace it. I may exchange that one (at the store) for the first My Fitness Coach because all the reviews I've read said it's much better.

I'm also interested in the Gold's Gym Cardio workout. Anyone try that one? That has great reviews as well. Any input is greatly appreciated!

TIA! Jill emoticon

Oh yeah, is it called My Shape or something like that?? Is it with Jenny McCarthy? I read one person's review, it may have been on Spark, where the person said they could see their living room was dirty behind her and she couldn't stay focused to exercise, and I can totally see that happening to me!

It's so interesting how different people like different ones! I just sold a bunch this week and it's interesting getting comments from people who said they were happy they bought it because they rented it and loved it and I didn't feel that way at all!! Different strokes for different folks I guess!!

I wonder how the new Jillian Michael's game is, anyone try that?

I personally didnt like EA. I had both games and it just wasnt for me. I didnt like the leg band and all the tangled mess when I worked out with the nunchuck and the stretch band. They moved too fast for me to grab it beside me and putting it around my neck got confusing. I sold mine on ebay.
I am really interested in the Walk game. Id like to hear some more reviews on it first though.

I'm looking forward to playing with it. The plastic stretch band has such a nasty smell, I'm hoping it airs out a little by tomorrow!

I'm finally getting sick. I almost did the other day but I fought it off I guess. Not this time, the pain and misery has hit. ugh! emoticon

Ok, well at least I got strength training in!! I didn't even get through one daily challenge workout in 40 mins!! I had to end it to get my son off the bus. It wasn't registering when I was running and I had to keep adjusting it. And bicep curls also wouldn't work and it just took forever!! I'm sure I just have to spend more time with it and figure it all out!!

I bought it today! EA! I'm excited to use it. I'm letting my daughter watch some tv after an afternoon in the car running errands, so she earned that! But when she's done I'm gonna get going with it!

Right before I left I decided since i have the $$ for the more expensive game, I may as well go with that one. I was looking for prices online and reading reviews, and EA does seem better for me. I do lots of walking games on the Wii, so this will be different. I need to be challenged more. Plus I hate strength training, and I desperately need to do it to see results, so this may just get me going!

I only have EA Active. I haven't used it much, but I love it and need to get into a routine with it. I am hoping to start the 30 day routine on Sunday.

I am looking into buying another leg strap for dh...he has used it a few times and wants to do some of the 2 player things with me.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone would understand if you fell apart- that's TRUE strength.

i have both AE active i like them both lol.. i like AE because it's more strenght training and cardio and you can create you own workouts or follow theirs. My only complaint is the leg strap i have fat thighs so the leg strap just falls down all the time. so i just do anything that doesn't require the strap.

you know i love walk it out.. but it is just that walking in place and cardio. if you need a more difficult work out go with AE active.

Thanks!!

I've wanted Walk it Out, but I'm leaning towards EA now.... I've been researching prices this morning for EA. I'm thinking I should get that one instead of Walk, I need something that will give me a harder workout!

Do you have the extra accessories so others can do it with you? I'm wondering if I should bother getting that.

I have the EA Sports Active but not Walk it Out. For which would be better would depend on what you want. Walk it Out would just be cardio while EA Sports Active is more like circuit training with alternating cardio with strength training. The EA Active has many options so if you want to just do cardio or just do strength training you can. On the other hand, if you are the type that does not like to exercise, Walk it Out could be a way to get your cardio in while "playing" while EA Active is more like formal exercise.
